A Special Message to Readers


             BLOG BREAK IN MAY

Dear Blog Peeps:

This blog, "Writing Straight from the Heart,"  began in 2009.

It has been a labor of true love and written from my heart with almost no breaks.

You, my dear blog peeps, have been my source of daily joy.

This month, I am going on a BLOG BREAK, due to travel and, unfortunately, I am not taking my computer with me.

I sure hope to see you later in the month. 

Don't give up on me, okay? Love, Susan

Thought for the Day

What is one small thing you can do right now with great love?

Call a friend?

Say a prayer for someone?

Be gentle with a pet?

Buy a birthday gift?

Pick some daffodils and give the bouquet to someone who is sad?

What else?

Fabulous Flowers


Some people absolutely dislike faux flowers but others love them.

Faux flowers can be absolutely gorgeous. 

There are so many colors and varieties to choose from that it's utterly amazing. 

 Many times it's totally impossible to tell the fake blooms from real ones unless a person feels them with the fingers.

There are some beauties in the crafts store, Michael's, and even some awesome fake blooms in Dollar Tree stores at this time of year.

A bit of lace, attached to an old jar or vase, can add a touch of loveliness.


Faux flowers, such as lilies, can be added to bouquets of living blooms. 

That makes a bouquet fuller and more regal.

Adding a few sprigs of fake baby's breath works, too, to fluff out a bouquet of real flowers.

 The stunning red roses shown in today's post are in a home where I recently stayed.

So, too, are the Yankee Candle angel candleholders. 


They are so charming.
