Dreamy thinking.....Rainy goodness, God winking- Come CELEBRATE a beautiful combo!

As you look at this photo below.....I am curious what the story is that it tells to your eyes and heart. 
As I staged the photo I was quiet inside and thought once again, "really, Really REALLY!"...
And this is the narration of this photo.
And I pay homage to my hero, Kaffe Fassett, my own little attempt to create photos as he does for his books....

 Do you believe me when I tell you that each piece was received last night as though a memo went out for a color scheme? 
I have a secret to tell you....I love JoAnn's sales on books and to reward myself for working ridiculous hours this week, I stopped in last evening to be tempted by a new read.... 
I was perusing and oohing and aahing over fmq inspirations and chose this book to play with. 
 I was whooped and somewhat downtrodden arriving home with groceries in hand and then...
2 squishies were saying, "Welcome home, EM!  Celebrating YOU!' and flowers from my boys.
I opened them and was tearfull because of the love from Caroll and Jennifer-
the love they sent me was SUGAR to my soul!

Jennifer's fabric proclaims "CELEBRATION" on the selvage and these sweet yo-yos that are exact colors of the book.  The card says, "Vision"......fabulous considering that Vision is a quilter's best friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And the sweet scissor fob hanging, can you believe how delicate and it exudes love from Caroll! On the other side is hand stitched flowers that match the colors in the fabric and lilies perfectly!

Caroll's sweet love note to me that I tucked inside.....Really!?

Caroll wrote that the scissor fob is for me because I am sweet...but the treat is.....

GOD, FRIENdSHIP, FAMILY, LIFE and QUILTING.  The whole composition ties in and is beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you have a composition that you wonder, "Was a memo sent out...or funnier yet....I don't think I got the same memo as the others...."

Love, Em
