Thank you....

Thank you so much to you for your very lovely and precious comments. I am not exaggerating when I say have been very, very moved. Some of you know that it is coming up to a very emotional time of the year for me, the anniversary of my little baby boy being taken into God's care and I think I have come to terms with the fact that he probably is the reason why I started this blog in the first place, to find some beauty and peace and to be taken to a pretty world of loveliness.

I do not feel as Gloomy now thanks to you guys, and have done a little thinking and have decided you won't get rid of me quite yet. I need, crave, love, enjoy, revel in all things pretty and I love the relationship I have with you lovely people. So if that chapter of my life was to come to an end it would actually for me, be rather sad, and I don't like to be sad I like to be happy, happy happy.

You may remember my little man caused this.

Well now there has been this.

My favorite vintage bowl that came with a beautiful matching jug, I don't know if you can tell from the photograph but it was really big and beautiful. Any idea on how I could recycle, it I would feel awful throwing it in the bin and don't feel excitement at the thought of gluing it all back together.

So now you may have some idea why I buy so many pretties, to replace the ones that get broken ;)

Thank you for your support :)



  1. Hi Mary

    I'm so sorry I hadn't replied to your previous post, you are so NOT in the bottom set when it comes to blogging! It is hard at times not to feel that you're not "keeping up" with everyone else (hell I feel bad I have no money and therefore no new pretties to show!) but we're meant to be doing this for ourselves... I think! Glad you're staying put for now, I would definitely miss you if you floated off.

    Love Mel xxx

  2. glad you're staying. some blogs I've read have use broken crockery to create a mosiac of some kind, not sure how, but I'm sure someone else will know.

  3. I knew you couldnt leave us!!

    hugss xx

  4. I'm so glad you've decided to stick around. I'm only new to blogging (didn't even know what they were until a few months ago lol) and I don't get a lot of time to blog and check out others blogs but you have a beautiful blog and I'm looking forward to seeing more. You and your blog are certainly nowhere near the bottom, you really need to give yourself more credit, I love looking at all your pretties and reading what you have to say. As for feeling pressured, please don't. Just write what you want when you want, do it for yourself, YOU'RE the one that counts!
    I'm so sorry about your loss, my heart sank and I was bought to tears when I read about your son. I wanted to email you but I don't know how to. I don't know your story but you're in my thoughts sweety.

  5. oh hunni I'm sorry you've been feeling like this. I'm so glad you've decided to stay I'm sure lot's of other bloggers will agree with me when I say that you are a cherished member of our blogging community and would be missed terribly if you where to leave.

    ((((big hugs)))
    I hope you are feeling better soon

  6. I'm so glad you're back! :-)

    Re bowl, I would make a mosaic out of it. Maybe a table mat or coasters or something?

  7. Hi Mary,
    Wew, I just read your previous post in my rss feed and hurried over here to try to change your mind. Too late....fortunately everybody else has LOL
    It must be a difficult time for you. I don't think I can even start to imagine what it was like for you.
    Take care,

  8. Hi Mary
    Gosh you are just so brave,and you have this wonderful way about the things you make, and talk about that make them so very special, you are a special person...and now I feel bad about not always leaving a comment when I visit..I treasure your beautiful blog pages, and I'm so glad you are keeping them up.
    Hugs and waves

  9. Hi,

    I for one am glad you will be sticking around :-D

    It must have been a very ahrd time for you -I'm reasonably new to blogging, so I don't know everybody's histories, and every now and then you learn something so sad has happened to people :-(

    I wish I could help with what to do with your plate, but I have to say I would be loathe to spend time glueing it back together myself, and wouldn't know where to start with doing something useful with it! Although I wish you all the luck in finding something!

  10. Mary I am so thrilled you are sticking around. Only do it when it pleases you though, remember how important YOU are.

    Re the plate I was going to say just what Sian says, you could make a lovely mosaic - a nice HSH one.

    Take care of yourself, thinking of you at this tough time.

  11. So glad you've decided to stick around ... I love reading your blog, with all it's prettiness!! I'm having a bit of a blogging break at the moment, mostly because I'm busy in the garden, but also because I don't want to put myself under any pressure to "have" to blog.

    Big (((hugs))) to you ... you're in my thoughts at this sad time.

  12. Hi again MAry,
    Good you stay here girl, your are a lovely person.
    I cannot say what i want to really say...not in public view anyway, but people like you who fill the world with beauty are very special.
    Take good care,
    Love and hugs,

  13. I'm so glad you have decided to stay!
    Big hugs from me ;-)

  14. I am so pleased Mary! :0)
    The best thing to do is blog when you feel like it and not feeling like you have too.
    If you lived nearer I would give you a big hug!
    Love Lou xxx

  15. Ohooo Bloggers you certainly know how to make a girl cry, in a good way :) Thank you so much for being my rocks whilst I am going through the mill a little.

    Each year of my darling son's anniversary gets harder and harder and it is hitting me hard this year.

    Though you all keep me going :)Though pleaaase only comment because you want to not because you have to, I have thought about turning my comments off, like I know a couple of you have, if only to give you all a break, we all lead such busy lives, but don't think I can, as I value your wise words so much.

    I personally think this whole comments malarkey is highly over rated and we should all give yourselves a pat on the back for our wonderful blogs whether we get 1 comment, no comments or 100 comments. I love the saying quality not quantity ;)


  16. Me again...still sitting in the kitchen with the laptop as my friend.
    You said it so well. What do the numbers mean anyway!!??
    Sometimes we cannot see the wood for the tree' that right?
    Thank you Mary, for being there for us too.

  17. Big hugs from me too, and I'm glad you're staying!! I hadn't had a chance to reply to your other post, I only read it and was sad to see you go.
    ♥ Teresa

  18. Sorry it's taken me a while to get round to commenting and pleased to see that you're feeling better about blogging now.

    I myself used to put various pressures on myself regarding blogging and since i've "chilled out" with it I'm much happier!

    I love reading your entries and will still be here how often you're able to post.

    Thank you for visiting my new blog too. Florence & Mary were my grandmothers names... I'll be explaining more tonight hopefully

  19. Oh Mary, I'm so sorry sweety!! How absolutely devastating! I don't even have the words to say, nothing can make losing a child any easier. My son is Joshua too, he has just turned 3 and if anything ever happened to him I'd die inside. I'm so glad you went on to have another child, not that it would ever take your Joshuas place, he will always be your first baby but it gives you something to live for, that's how I see it anyway, not that I can understand and I hope I haven't offended you or hurt you in anyway by saying that. Did you have anymore children? I'd love to have lots of babies but can't, Joshi is our one and only but I'm just so happy to have him. I've had 6 pregnancies, an ectopic in 2002, then 3 miscarriages and another ectopic just last year. If my last pregnancy was successful we would have just had our second child about 4 weeks ago. Life can be so cruel but we can rise above anything and life really is what we make of it. We're survivors Mary, we've survived the most heart wrenching things anyone can ever have to face (and I mean you more than me, what you went through is far worse than what I've been through)
    You're welcome to email me through my blog anytime Mary. I wanted to email you but I can't find your email anywhere.
    Take care sweety and keep up your beautiful work! xx
    Oh and I think that plate is perfect for a mosaic, go for it!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. X
