Good Monday morning, all!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are heading for an equally wonderful brand new week!

I am feeling so filled with goodness this morning because it just seems the world is walking by my side -- I am so touched by all the kindnesses of so many wonderful friends, old and new; and some unexpected but very special surprises have helped me feel this way!  A beginning...
I'd like to welcome several new followers!  Welcome to CuteandSome!  I am so happy to have you here and I hope you'll feel comfortable and come back often.  Thank you for coming, we're family here!  I'll visit with you later, if I can find you!!!

I received in the mail today a mini album that I won and was awarded  from my friend Rhonda.  I don't think Rhonda needs much of an introduction because she's got to be famous for her minis!  I can't tell you how surprised I was to get my hands on this because eventhough Isuggested the design, pictures just can't justify how amazing this book really is in person; it's more than I could have imagined:

Thank you, Rhonda!!!  This is such a treasure!

Also within the last day and a half I've won two (2) blog candies from 2 other bloggie friends:  Wendy and Jean.  Thank you, ladies, for allowing me to participate in your blog candy giveaways!  I haven't received my candy yet although I'm really anticipating getting them; I have no patience now that I've won -- lol!!! 

Last but not least, I did not publicly/post acknowledge a gift from a very dear friend which I received several weeks ago.  It wasn't because I neglected to but, in my excitement and haste to use the item, I didn't first take a picture.  Sandy sent me a pair of "purple" (yes, I said purple) rubber gloves.  I'd seen she'd bought herself a pair and I got so excited over them that she actually sent me a pair -- see what wonderful friends you are!!!  Anyway, because I immediately used the gloves and wouldn't dare post a picture of them after use, I thought I'd lost the opportunity.  Eventhough I felt a bit guilty afterwards, I knew Sandy would forgive me -- she's like that!  However, I still have the box for storage, so I thought, well... as I have this, I can post it and still let Sandy know I much I appreciate my gift.  So, Sandy, again, thank you so much my friend:

Again I'll tell you, these are just a few of all my amazing friends you need to visit if you haven't already!!!  Just click on their names and you'll be directed to their blogs!

To you all, thank you so much for being my friends; I really do love you -- ALL!!!  And... you're ALL AMAZING!!!

I'll be back!!!

Audrey, I just love mini albums and this is the cutest - a witch over a cauldron - how wonderful of your friend to send it to you! Purple gloves had me chuckling because I remember when I asked my husband to help with dishes once and he wouldn't because he didn't want "soft" hands so I bought him a pair of gloves and didn't look at the color - they were purple! We took a picture with him wearing them...the only time he ever helped with the dishes! LOL! ;-)

Love That Bug said...

Hey Audrey,
Just wanted to pop in and say congrats my dear friend on all your goodies

Rhonda Emery said...

Curt in Carmel said...

There are just some people who I think are way above average when it comes to being special. You are certainly one of those people. I am so glad that I ran across your blog and you. I am still in awe over the fact that you came to my blog and posted 7 different comments! I am humbled and honored to be visited by such a warm, sweet, kind person. I just wanted you to know what I think of you and how much I already appreciate how very special I think you are. Can't wait to come back! Thanks for being such a wonderful human being! Best, Curt

You are so sweet! Thanks for mentioning me! But it is I who should be thanking you for all the blog visits and wonderful comments that you leave for me. You are a great friend and I'm glad to have you!
The mini from Rhonda is so CUTE! I just love all Halloween projects!!

Sheila aka SassyLady said...

What a wonderful mini album, you won! Boy with all these gifts you must feel special like you are!

xosparklesxo said...

I have those same gloves, and I love them! *LOL* I got excited when I saw them at the store too. Makes dishes more fun I think. I love the new lighter colors you've chosen. They make the text super clear and easy on the eyes. :) I look forward to getting back in touch with you.

Lori Apgar said...

Congrats Audrey!!! Luck is on your side (maybe you should buy a lottery ticket!!).

Love the Halloween Album your friend made!! Purple is my favorite color and I would love anything purple from my friends ~ it would make my day too!!

You have such good friends because you are a good friend!!
