"The Flowers"


Hi everyone
Do these little flowers look familiar to you? Guess,,, I bet you know who made them!
Aren't they so pretty?


Does this little flower on my back look familair to you?

These little flowers were made with love by Melissa at Life is art ... Art is Life . She had sent them to me, and I love them so much. I have them everywhere!

Little flowers are on my wall!
Little flowers are on the ceiling!
Little flowers are on my clothes!
And flowers in my hair!


Thank you to everyone for leaving me messages yesterday saying how pretty the flower was. Well,,,,,,,thats a big Thank You to Melissa -



Melissa of course, is not only an artist, but she has one of the biggest hearts I know. She makes knitted bears for the Mother Bear Project, and she crochets colorful little squares to be made into quilts of love for people far away in Africa. Melissa like to create hope for those that need some hope and love.



Melissa's words

"I have been having lots of fun crocheting more squares and rectangles for Knit-A-Square in South Africa and HAP in Maryland.
Each piece will be joined with other peoples' beautiful squares and rectangles to
make blankets for needy children and our brave veterans.
Organizations like Kiva.org, HAP, Knit-A-Square and the Mother Bear Project have really shown me that creating something as small as a woven square can make a difference in someone's life.
I really believe it is the small things we do everyday that matter the most."




See what I said,,, she has a big heart. And I wanted everyone to know about the little flowers and how special they are!

Thank you again Melissa.
Nitey nite my friends and don't forget to go leave a poem over at Jan Mader Ignite To Write for me to go read.
love
tweedes

Thank you so much for the nice comment on my blog, Tweedles...I'm lucky to have such a great pup for my friend.

In fact, thank you for EVERYTHING. You're terrific!

PS...We need to send Melissa over to my sister-in-law's blog...THE BRIDGE (button for it on my blog). She crochets hats and mittens for homeless people under bridges. Melissa sounds like she has a huge heart and advice to share....
