without
some small
place of
enchantment
to turn to

It's always the little things, isn't it Koralee, that bring us to that place of enchantment? This is such a place for me...right here in your world.

Thanks Koralee, for sharing your inspiring hearts. I am thinking of a heart themed 3rd birthday party for our little granddaughter soon. Your dancing paper hearts and pink straw hearts have given me great ideas! Thanks again!
Your blog is very refreshing...and pretty too.

I am having a giveaway on my blog, which will be drawn on Valentine's Day. If you get the chance, you are very welcome to drop by my green and white garden. (You will find it a couple of posts back, under 'Giveaway in an Enchanted Forest')

Amanda said...

I love how you see the love-liness in everything Koralee. How sweet, and I love your paper hearts. I'm thinking I have a much better chance of making these than the pink heart cake!

I couldn't agree more, dear Koralee! I learned that from my mother...every day is filled with enchantment for her...beauty is everywhere. Always something new to learn, to do, to love. I'm trying to remember that and be more like her.

Thanks for all you share, my friend!
