Pretty Pinks

Today I took gifts to a sweet lady named Theresa.

She works at the bilingual school where I taught for several years. And even though I've now been gone for 4 years, she still sends me a gift and card every time my birthday rolls around.

Her birthday was last week so I put together these gifts and delivered them this morning. I even managed to do a little cross-stitching. My first since sometime in December.

I stopped off at the flower shop on the way to get her some pink roses.

Most people here go for extravagant, and what I consider gawdy, bouquets. When I go in with my little vase or recycled glass jar and ask for it to be filled with flowers, the guy behind the counter thinks I'm nuts. Ha!

I hope your day is filled with pretty things, simple pleasures and sweet friends. Peace & blessings, Tammy

If I was going to put you into a category, Tammy, I think it would be gift giving. You create the most beautiful gifts out of your made things and little tidbits. Take care, blessings, Diane

Ya know, I never did get to see what you gave her....adorable and thoughtful as always. What a great idea to go to the flower shop and fill your own vase. I love how you always have your gift baskets color and themed coordinated.
Good to see you today as always and hope you didn't suffer too much out in the sun:) Hope the rest of your day went well and that your little friends weren't waiting for you to get home:)

HI Tammy,

Your friend would have been thrilled with the birthday gift, how lovely.
The cross stitch is pretty with the rose and I love the idea of you taking your own container to put it in.
Happy weekend

As a retired florist of many years I always thought a dozeh roses was a waste... I thought to recieve a rose more often and no reason would be much more effective... It makes it sweet.

Hi, Tammy,
I know Theresa loved her rosy gifts!! I am with you on the bouquets. I have always preferred a small cottage style arrangement rather than a big bouquet. I hope your weekend has been a good one. Thank you for your faithful visits and kind comments. Lots of love being sent your way~ Vicki

How very wonderful of you to remember Theresa. I am sure you made her day by stopping by. What was it like being back at GBS?? That would be enough to make me go running for the nearest door.
I love knowing that you have enough free time during your days now to take care of people who you don't always get to see anymore. Good for you!!
