  3. What an appropriate (and generous) giveaway for this time. I think we saw a lot of American Style over the past week. Being an American of course means we have the blessing to live freely. But Americans also filled with kindness, compassion and generosity. When we see others in need of help, we offer a helping hand and see that wrongs are made right. That's American Style.

  4. On days like these, although trying, seeing others help those in need always gives me a sense of American pride. That's what America means to me: when given the option to run and hide, Americans choose to run into the trouble to help. America is all about helping others and we are by far the most generous nation. Whether it's our brave Military, First Responders, or the person standing next to you, as Americans we want to help. This is what brings us to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness - all of which never goes out of style.

    Great blog, Cindy! My wonderful Aunt Deb referred me to your blog as I'm just starting out and learning to decorate.

  5. Just to say that in Europe we are aware about all, that we're thinking of Boston and that we're praying for Peace! For peace in the world. For leaving together in peace, whatever nationality or religion, that's the only way to fight any kind of terror.
    Let's keep up hope.

  9. Wonderful post and a lovely giveaway. Boston makes me appreciate the American get-it-done attitude. I used to think we were all generally the same, but when I saw the episode of Downton Abbey - the one with Shirley McClain as the American relative - I realized what a difference there truly is in our attitudes.
