monday motivation - friends

 One of my dear blog friends, Joyce was inspired to create porcelain baskets full of cherries for her friends.  She sent me these images and gave me permission to share with each of you.  I thought this was a lovely thing to do for friends.
This week, I am feeling motivated by friends and it is the little things they do to motivate us and to make us feel special.  I will be back shortly with the winner of the Cherries painting.  Liz Floyd selected the winner, via random number generator, number 45.  The winner is Trina from A country Farmhouse.

What a sweet idea - I think I'm going to have to borrow that one. What would life be without friends?
Hope you have a lovely week, Patricia. XO

Congrats to Trina!!! It is good to always have a bowl of cherries onhand or on your wall.
My friends got a kick out of the little favors. The porcelain baskets are from Crate and Barrel. I think they were $6. A steal. Thanks my friend for starting the idea. :) xo
