Idiom definition for " Count your blessings" - When people count their blessings, they concentrate on all the good things in their lives instead of the negative ones.The definition above definitely describes the life motto of my sweet blog friend, Sonya. Like everyone of us, Sonya has her bad days and her good days, days filled with joy or peppered with sorrow, but always, she chooses to be mindful of counting her blessings. I wanted to introduce you to Sonya, her beautiful inspirational art, and her brand new blog, Counting My Blessings, where she shares her family, her faith, arts and crafts, gardening, and thrifty finds.

Here are a few photos of her beautiful fabric collage pieces, a precious sentiment using my favorite subject, a bird. Can you believe that this is her very first fabric collage?
I love the little rusty safety pin holding the feather...Don't you love the little coin purse nest?This one has a Victorian feel from the image of the mother and her precious children... Isn't this sentiment the hope of every mother, to be appreciated?Pretty pearls, yummy chocolate velvet, gorgeous lace, ribbon roses, so sweet...I hope you will join me in welcoming Sonya to the blog neighborhood by hopping over for a visit and leave her a message of warm welcome.

Right now I am counting my blessings of having such wonderful blog friends like all of you. The support and love from the blog community is amazing. You offer encouragement, inspiration, laughter, joy, and precious friendship. For that, I thank you.

I hope that precious blessings of goodness and mercy are flowing your way today and that you too will have something good to concentrate on.

Many Blessings,
Miss Sandy
