I get by with a little help from my friends

How wonderful it has been to meet and make new friends here in blog land! When I started this blogging journey, I just had no idea what kind and generous people I would meet.

Today I received in the mail a very lovely surprise.


My friend Marydon over at Feedsack Fantasy sent me a little gift. She's been so sweet to me in the past, and knowing that I was kind of laid up with a sprained foot, she sent some bloggy love.

I am so excited to read the book "a Day with a Perfect Stranger". I've heard about this one, but have not read it yet. And some delish gourmet coffee (Candy Cane!!) to sip while I read. THE most adorable Vintage Button Greeting Cards and a very fragrant sachet. Marydon, I could smell this package when my son brought in the mail. Thank you Marydon for being such a sweet bloggy sister.

Also in the mail was a very sweet thank you note from Ronit of Two Hippos for my small contribution for the Miracle Foundation quilts she has been commissioned to make. She also sent me a little bit of textile love, which I appreciated.

And yesterday, I received from Kim a box of her scraps!!! Wow, how much fun it has been to go through her "so called" scraps. She has been most generous.

So I now have a book to read, and some fabrics to sort. It has been so hard to "not" do things that I really want and need to do. But having a little help from my friends certainly makes the process go a little easier.

Thanks ya'll!

Have a wonder filled day :-)

How lovely that your friends are looking after you! I often read about these little random acts of gift giving here in blogland and have wondered 'How do they know that person's mailing address?'It's definitely something I would enjoy doing for someone...so how did they find out where to mail your goodies???

How sweet...what a wonderful surprise! Yes, blogging friends are the best...I started because of decor and tea, but have found that the people you meet are the real reason we do this!

God bless!
