FOR the Love of Papier

Blue & Brown
oh how wonderful

My friend Rhea was in Chicago for a
Bulls~Heat game
& he thought of me. 
Went shopping
for a gift & it was gift wrapped also
Isn't this a lovely note pad??
it says DEENA all over it
LOL ...
we'll it is so me!!

and it does have a lovely D
on it & a jewel.

Thank you Rhea
you are a dear friend

 PS My friend Rhea just happens to be my Marcia's husband too
He came and sat with me after my surgery , he is such a blessing
& a survivor TOO!

Today although I feel good, I am very tired. Rich served me breakfast in bed
& I suppose my snuggly bed will be my friend today. 

For now

PS  I am so behind on posting awards, but I have them all
appreciate each one & will do it SOON


My joy today, I've forgotten to tell you

tis a major accomplishment, I barely feel limited in my range of motion,
after all that surgery.  !!!!

WHAT are your joys???


  1. Deena what a sweet gift from Rhea.
    Oh breakfast in bed. That's nice. A restful, snuggly bed day will be wonderful for you.

  2. I love the notepad! It's quite regal, a perfect gift for a Queen.

    Enjoy your snuggly, warm bed. It could just be the best thing.

  24. Good Morning Deena,
    Oh my, I so love your little note pad. It is you all the way. I tell ya, so many of yall are really inspiring me to get into the Vintage look and I have seen some of the most beautiful Vintage things on some of yall's blogs. "PRAISE GOD" you are able to hold your arm up. That was so sweet and romantic of Rich to serve you breakfast in bed. And your bed can be your best friend at times. I know mine is. LOL. It is just so comfy and I have to make myself get out of it in the mornings. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great and relaxing day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  25. What a lovely gift Deena! Rhea's work is impeccable. Brown and blue is such an excellent color combo. One of my favs too (also cream or sand in the mix works good with these two colors). Am grateful you can hold your arm up high!!
    Today I'm grateful for things to look forward to.
    Happy to have found your blog!

  26. Rhea sounds like a jewel, too!
    Hope you have a fabulous movie to watch today. Have you seen A Beautiful Mind? I watched it for the 1000th time last night and it was just as wonderful as it was the very first time I saw it.It is one of my favorites...along with Bridges of Madison County.
    I am thinking and praying about you today,

  27. Ohhhh...and my joys of the day:
    * We had a nice rain last needed.
    * I am spending the afternoon with daughter and granddaughters.......Ummmmmm!
    hugs, bj

  28. What a lovely notepad! And breakfast in bed? So good to be you. :o)

    I'm glad you're starting to get your range of motion back. That's the best! Rest up, my dear.

  29. Hi Deena,
    What a sweet gift! And breakfast in bed is always wonderful. :) Glad to hear you are feeling a little better. Stop by if you have a chance, and see the funny blue jays I posted today.

  30. Deena,

    Rhea certainly has good taste. I'm so glad he brought you back this lovely giftie.

    Rich is a darling for bringing you breakfast in bed. I'm so proud of him for taking such good care of you.

    My joy today is knowing that you can lift your arm above your head. Our prayers are being answered.

    Love and hugs and many blessings.
