Friday Pretties- Copy Cat

"Imitation is the most
sincere form of flattery"

Right?

I saw this print on
Koralee's blog,
And, I just had to have it!!!

As most of you already know,
Koralee has an amazing blog!
One of my favs...

And, She's Famous!!!

I had read that she was featured in
Artful Blogger
and
Where Women Create
I searched and search for these two books and
Could Not find them anywhere!!!

Guess what my amazing sister got me for my birthday?
You guessed it- Both of them!

Look at the adorable knit garland
she bought for me too!
I had admired them last time
we went shopping.
She remembered...
:)
She got me a couple of
other sister items too.
We always buy each other socks
for birthdays and Christmas,
and often a cardigan sweater.
She did all of that,
I just don't have pictures...

Love you Sher Bear!!!

Hi Joyce! Love that print... I remember when Koralee posted about it... so pretty...
Wish my waist was 20" again like that ;o)

What a warm, cozy and loving relationship you and your sister have ♥
That's the prettiest thing for me today too... my sis is 50 today, Sept. 30 She's my best friend ~

I really enjoy Where Women Create Magazine and was thrilled to see our little Bluebird in it! Artful Blogging is also an awesome mag for blogging inspiration. Koralee's article about what inspires her was wonderful to read. Love what she wrote about her g'mother.

Have a restful weekend, Joyce ~
