For the Love of Little Bella Marie...

This little beauty belongs to one of my BBFs (Best Blog Friends).


She is the granddaughter of Debbie from Texas which whom I have come to lean on every morning for my cup of laughs. Knowing how Debbie can still share laughter along side of worry for her little grand~angel Bella Marie is beyond me. The only thing that I can be certain of is that she's letting God take control & little Bella is obeying His commands as every day is a brighter day for her. She was born premature on 3-12-09 and weighed less than one pound. With everyone praying for her, she has received one miracle after another. Truly amazing.

Speaking of amazing things, there is a great group of girls that have rallied together to help make Bella Marie's recovery a little brighter...

Do it (for) baby!

At Junk Sistas, there will be a raffle starting May 1st for the most awesome prizes from friends that want to help little Bella Marie and her family.

I for one am included in this rally and I am donating this wonderful gift package...most of which I was lucky enough to find this week while junking with Sandy here in Louisiana...

Package includes:

One unopened 10 yard roll of vintage 5/8" Scarlet Red velvet ribbon imported from Switzerland.

One roll of vintage Supertone piano music paper (for a self playing piano) titled Cecile of the Hesitation Waltz No. 66517

3 sheets from a vintage 1915 Ladies' Home Journal (June) measuring 11X16 and printed on both front and back

12 sheets from a vintage general ledger dating back to 1949 & 1950. Some with handwriting and some blank.


This is not new velvet ribbon...this is VINTAGE OLD STORE STOCK to die for!!!! Looks and feels wonderful!!!!!

The piano roll is in pristine condition with vinyl tab in tact. Box is included.

All of these items are perfect for vintage paper art!!!!


So we need your help. Please click on the link here and follow the directions on how to purchase a raffle ticket(s).

Tickets will go on sale Friday, May 1st.

While you are there, you can find the links to many other blogs who will also be donating wonderful gifts that can be won with your ticket purchase.

There will be no shipping charges as I will ship directly to the lucky winner once announced on June 1, 2009. 

Please be generous as 100% of the proceeds will go to the family of Bella Marie to help cover medical expenses.

Thanks for your help and generosity in advance!

Jodie you are generous as always with your donatation and your words. Bella Marie is so beautiful, I know she will grow up to be a beautiful woman and will have a wonderful story to tell about all the angels that helped her when she was only 1 pound.

Jodie, How blessed was I when I met Pam who "introduced" me to you!
I am one rich woman to be surrounded by such beautiful, strong and giving women. You shoot straight to the heart!
