I'm Back~

It's been a while, I know... I've not been feeling so well.....everything is OK and I should be ashamed for having a down time... but as my diagnosis date approaches..I'm feeling a bit of saddness,fear,worry and just weary at everything that's happened in the past year. As most alreadyknow.. last year, I heard those two words every woman fears the most...but, I'm doing great. It's just after being somewhat "normal" the last few months and not thinking about it every waking second, it's time to go back and face it all again...that makes it seem so fresh again..please say a tiny prayer if you don't mind? Now onto brighter things....
Some of you have been asking when the next sale will be

  5. Ann, you have most definately been missed! I will keep you in my prayers that all WILL be well. Hugs and blessings, T

  6. Ann,
    Oh sweet girl, if I heard those words I'd throw up all over the doctor. I swear. I'm scared to death of that beast. You handled your diagnosis just the way I would (I hope, of course you never know until it happens to you) & I know you'll be fine. Just the thought of having to wait for the appt. & all. I sure don't blame you for being, nervous, worried & every other emotion. I am praying for you everyday Ann. From your worry comes some amazing art! I will be at your sale for SURE, in fact, I may bring a couple of friends! Lisa

  7. Prayer has been sent! Hugs to you, Diane

  8. Oh my gosh... I know how you feel... I get really up tight when I make my visits after the heart attack...... I was so up tight this past week, my blood pressure was everywhere causing me to have to go back for more tests... You are not lonely in your feelings... evwn though we think we have things under control... sometimes we don't... Thinking of you...

  9. I have missed you and your awesome blog!! Give it to the LORD love, all will be just fine!! Love to you!! Rhonda

  14. Praying for you also, Ann!
    With much fondness, Louise. xo

  15. I understand how you feel. I have to have cT scans every 2 months, and I always become more quiet and withdrawn as that day grows closer. Thankfully, I got an encouraging reading this time...I will keep you in my prayers.
    I have to tell you that I love that last picture. My kind of collection of items....

  16. I'm happy to pray for you too. Remember, prayers go up and blessings come down.

  21. Ann,

    Don't be harsh on yourself for the emotions you're feeling! I think (most) all of us would feel the same.... You're brave and you're courageous for sharing here. But being brave doesn't mean you shouldn't worry aloud here (or there or anywhere you need to!)

    Wishes and hopes are winging their way to the powers that be ... And a hug is winging it's way to you "Tin Rabbit" :-)

    I can't wait to see the beautiful things you have to share with us in your September Sale!


  22. Special prayers for your well being and health. May you have peace of mind and not worry. Blessings...

  23. Dear Sweet Ann,
    I'm so sorry that you have not been feeling's unbelievable what fear can do to us. But, fear is very normal, especially after what you've been through. You know, sometimes when we are at our weakest point, that's when we have to call on our friends to undergird us and hold us up in prayer. When you're in pain (physical, emotional, or spiritual), it's so hard to pray for yourself and feel like you've reached God...that's what friends are for! Please know that I am praying for you every day, as well as many others. You are such a special friend and loved by so many. We've got your back!
    Jer. 33:3
    Sending lots of love and hugs your way,

  24. Dearest sweetest Ann,

    I am so very sorry you have not been feeling well!!! You should NOT be ashamed for having a down time. You need to do that, and you need to take care of yourself! Oh Ann, I can only imagine all you have been through since your diagnosis, and the fears just never go away! I understand the sadness, fear, worry and weariness. My heart just breaks for you! I will be praying for you my dear sweet friend! Praying for the Lord to give you peace and good health! Please let me know how your appointment goes. I know the Lord will be with you and will bring you comfort! You are in my prayers always! I just know all will be well! I love you dear Ann, and I am so glad you are my friend!!! You are such a blessing to me!!!

    I love your beautiful creations! You know how much you inspire me! I love the wall hanging… the lace, buttons, papers, and flowers are all so gorgeous! It looks lovely in the pretty oval frame! I love your gorgeous vignette!!! So many pretty things assembled so beautifully together! The vintage image is darling!

    Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers! If there is anything I can do, please let me know! I am always here for you! Big hugs and lots of love to you my sweet friend! Love you, Paula

  25. Ann, I'm sorry you are having a hard time right now~ I think when we go through rough times with our health, it opens us up to a vulnerability where we realize we're not invincible. My prayers will be with you that all is well and you will continue to grow stronger and healthier with each passing day! Please know there are many of us out here sending you love and best wishes...

  26. ann, go to my blog and read the story of a woman with breast ca and her love of her dog! it will inspire you and make you feel the good of what has happened. prayers, diane vintagetickledpink

  27. Hi Ann, I'll be praying for you. I had a melanoma removed almost four years ago. Last year the new oncologist in the city where I've moved, told me I could wait a year between visits now. I think I'm more nervous though. I like being told that everything is okay a little more often. I'll pray for God's wonderful peace for both of us. It comes when we realize that everything is alright no matter what happens, because He is in control.

  28. Oh Ann, There is no reason to be ashamed for such kind of feelings after what you have gone through! I will keep you in my thoughts and hope so very much that the tests will come out fine.

  29. Welcome back.

    Love that first picture.
    Lovely design.

  30. i'm sending prayers for you all the way from the Philippines. God bless you!

  31. Oh Ann I was a bit worried about you when you didn't post... but totally understand the fear.. Praying for you my friend that you will again find peace and that your diagnosis day goes the best possible way..
    Absolutely love your little hanging too! Totally gorgeous!
    Love Lou xx

  32. Hello Ann
    I am sorry you have had bronchitis really is awful stuff and takes forever to get over. I am slowly feeling better...and hope you are also.
    I will also keep you in my prayers as your diagnosis day approaches. I am a FIRM believer in prayer and POSITIVE thinking. My Dad battled Leukemia and Parkinson's disease for ten years.
    His church congregation and power of postive thinking kept him strong!
    At 80, he was too frail to take much more and is now with the Lord...but we had ten years of his life added while he stayed positive and focused.

    I also love your vignettes you shared today!


  33. Blessings to you, Ann. It's only natural that we fear the unknown or something we've been battling with - you, are a winner. My prayers are being directed your way.

    I get comfort from the little ditty below - it's from Winnie the Pooh - hope you find strength from it:

    Christopher Robin to Pooh:

    "Promise me you'll always remember:

    You are braver than you believe,
    And stronger than you seem,
    And smarter than you think"

    God Bless - Judy in Houston

  34. Hello Ann, I hope you feel well soon. Thank You for stopping by. When you are felling better. I wish you luck on your hunt on finding a vintage dog house....Julian

  35. Ann I think instead of a tiny prayer I would love to send up a huge one for you dear one. You will be in my prayers for sure. Sometimes a break is exactly what we need to regroup and recharge. Wishing you the best!

  36. Hello, dear Ann,
    I am praying that all will go well at your next appointment. Enjoy your weekend, sweet friend. I am looking forward to your sale in September. Sending love and prayers your way~ Vicki

  37. Praying for your appointment and that you will feel Jesus' love and comfort and confidence! "Perfect Love (JESUS) casts out all fear" 1 John 4:18

  38. Good Morning Ann~

    You were on my mind this morning and I wanted to come and comfort you, letting you know that prayers have been lifted up for you, not only for your health but for your inner strength and spirit too.

    Take all the time you need and whatever works best for you, works for us. However, being with friends is the best medicine even when we wake in the mornings and don't even want to open the curtains.
