While in the States this summer, Sheila Rumney sent me the the loveliest handmade gifts.
A Bee Happy card.
And a FAITH art necklace.
Both are really so very special and I appreciate them so much.
Thank you, Sheila.
(I'm not the only one who likes the necklace but I managed to retrieve it before Jingles made a clean getaway.)
After we arrived back to Kuwait, a surprise package was delivered to me all the way from Australia.
Nicole at Dabbling All Day sent me another pay-it-forward gift which was totally unexpected.
Thank you so much Nicole!
Three very pretty knitted washcloths, chocolate and a sweet card.
Next thing I know, I receive an envelope from Patty at Patty's Pretty Things filled with the sweetest handmade cards. They really are so lovely.
And then, just the other day, I received not one, but two packages from the States.
First, Sharon at From My Front Porch sent me the most beautiful cross-stitched towel.
As a cross-stitcher, I know the work that went into making it.
I am so grateful for your sweet gift Sharon!
And last but not least are gifts from Jan.
I love the card which is made from a watercolor image done by a local artist.
That same artist, Nora Larimer, also painted the trivet with Colorado Columbine.
A scarf, bracelet and earrings (made by a friend of Jan's with coated copper and fresh water bronze pearls).
And the sweetest felt ornament made by Jan herself.
They are all so beautiful and I love them so much!
Jan and I were supposed to meet in Colorado this summer but it just didn't work out.
Maybe next year.
You can find Jan at A Journey.
Please visit all these lovely ladies when you have a moment.
Blog friends really are so kind and generous!
Once again, I must apologize for my absence from blogging.
I do miss visiting all of you. I just wanted to pop in for a quick hello. We leave in the wee hours of the morning on another adventure. Will be back in a week's time.
Hope all is well where you are!
Best wishes and blessings,
