The House That Honey Built
A Thank you to all of you following and reading my blog.  Thanks for your comments which has inspired me to give away another dress.  I love giving and meeting new people from around the world.  And I enjoy reading your blogs.  The house shown above is the Emerson house kit by Brinca Dada that my hubby put together and it looks great!  Can you imagine a solar powered dollhouse given to me by a friend?  I was going to make it a Bridal Shop but as of today my mini mind is working like crazy to sway me to make something else, like a Retreat for Women.  Wow.  

The July dress left yesterday for it's destination to The Netherlands!

Tom Bishop International Show 2013! Chicago Here I Come!

Brinca Dada -Emerson A Modern Mini House
After my doctor's appointment yesterday morning I was disappointed and feeling down in the dumps.  My family,  friends and enemies too had prayed for a miracle that God would reveal to the doctor a fix for my shoulder.  Instead, after reviewing my MRI and showing me the damage, he said,  "The rotator cuff is torn beyond repair.  Even if you were normal and didn't have lymphedema,  surgery would only be a 50/50 option for this kind of tear."  

So, there went my option for restoration and while down in the dumps of despair, suddenly I remembered something from the Holy Bible: "And one thing more: Prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be restored to you in answer to your prayers." Philemon 1:22 NIV and quickly I started climbing to higher ground humming a song my mother used to sing that includes these words, He may not come when you want him, but He is always right on time.  

God is an awesome God!  Our prayers are always answered although we may not know it.  Therefore prepare a guest room for me because I will keep hope alive! Thank you to all of you who prayed for me.

Gift of goodies I received Today!
Today has been one of the best days of my life.  I received in the mail the dollhouse goodies in the picture to the right.  A very nice lady I met at the Tom Bishop Chicago International Show sent them to me.  And tomorrow the Mini Modern Brinca Dada Emerson house will be delivered to my home.  Yep, the same nice lady.  Pictures will be posted. 

My plan is to furnish the house as a very unusual and interesting Bridal Shop in black, white and silver, so she also sent the gorgeous hand turned vase which stands 1 1/2 inches tall.   Made from precious wood.  The delicate wooden piece at the top is removable.  Awesome!

This is the best time for me to tell you that I feel another give away coming your way because of you!  I want to thank you for following my blog and leaving those wonderful comments. 

Please don't forget that this 
Saturday is the day of the drawing for the very unique dress to the right.
