Home and many more....

Hello friends, I am home.....

and I have lots of share today, part of it with a heavy heart, while I was writing this post, TV was playing President Obama speaking at the ceremony for slain ambassador Christopher Stevens and 3 other American heros. I can't stop my tears watching the ceremony as I witnessed one just few hours ago while I was in Boston airport. At the viewing deck, together with hundred of passengers taking the same Southwest flight to Chicago, we saw the ceremony for another fallen soldier came home for the last time. 

Not just that..... I arrived in New York on September 11, while our plane was still circling in the air waiting to land, it was just next to the blue towers of light from world trade center


when we walked out from the plane...



it just makes my heart heavy, when when when...  are we going to have

PEACE 

in our tiny little planet?

God blessed the world 
and
God blessed United States of America

Ok, on the lighter side.....

I came home with these goodies in my mail box


sometime ago, I participated in the Mail Art Exchange organized by Kissinia
I sent one of my envelope to my blog friend Sandi, and I got one from her this week
Just look at those pretty house and the sewing on the envelope


and a pretty little tag in there too, lots of great texture and awesome sewing, a typical Sandi's creation and I love it, thank you Sandi!!!!

I wonder the same thing Kirsty... will there ever always be peace in this world, what have we people learnt from things happening in the past... hardly anything it seems... Thank goodness we're living partly in our blogging world, a place where beauty is created, such as your gorgeous card here!
