Feelin' the Silver Sunday Love

(Happy to Design, Filigree Moon, Faded Charm)

Welcome to the final Silver Sunday (Season One)
This has been such a warm, toasty way to spend the past few cold and chilly weeks of winter!
 I just wanted to share all the love I've felt over the past 6 weeks....this has been huge mountains of fun as well as a pirate sized bounty of silver! I've met so many new bloggy friends. You're all absolutely, positvely amazing and creative!

As I perused through all of your post again trying to snag a few of my personal favs to highlight this wee ( I had a really rough time of it) I ended up with just about every photo posted then my computer began to cough and sputter from so many downloads.. So in a quandry of having to choose (I hate to make these kind of choices...) I ended up asking my Perfect Prince to pick out the ones he liked...(totally impartial right?, as perfect as he is, a 15yr old young man is completely random right?) Well, he had a difficult time as well "mom, they're all silver and pretty cool, just put them all up" Gee, thanks for your help PP. So finally we just closed our eyes and here are my random choices of Silver Sunday Seasnon One!
