I have been seriously busy busy busy, and haven't gotten around to my favorite challenges sites as often as I have wanted in the past couple of weeks.  I sent Tracy a pic of my craft table, and she so kindly said it wasn't the worst she has ever seen.  But I am sure she is just being her kind self !!

 and of course, that is only 1/4 of the room.

Soooo, today's entry is going to City Crafter where they have this gorgeous picture

and a vintage garden theme !!

I am reading a book about Chinese immigrants, and came across a Welcome Blessing,
Happiness is coming through the gate.

How many wonderful things that could mean.

Here is my take on the photo, and the theme.

Hope your happiness is coming through the gate too !
