One of my first blogging friends was Marilyn from Our Victorian Cottage. While in NY this summer, I snapped this painting in a thrift shop as it made me think of her.
She actually used a photo of Marilyn Monroe as her profile picture. Although she is no longer blogging, we have kept in touch by email and recently I received a package from her that included crochet patterns -- each one nicely tucked inside plastic sleeves with a little note on each pattern as to why she sent it.
A handwritten notecard from a collection called Little Sniffles put out by Moda Company that includes a reproduction children's hankie from the 1930s to 1950s.
And the Attitude of Gratitude issue of MaryJanesFarm that is a magazine devoted to organic living. It's even printed on recycled paper.
Isn't it amazing that you can meet someone virtually and yet feel like you've known them for years? Diane from Pinecones & Roses calls her blogger friends kindred spirits. I've certainly come across many of you who are just that.
My cousin Gwen, who started me blogging in the first place and who had shut down her blog, has recently started another one called Gwenny's Place. I'm glad she's back!
Gratitude preserves old friendships, and procures new.
Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday! Friendship blessings, Tammy
