What did you do this weekend? I helped this “Little Cowboy” celebrate his 6th birthday! And we looked at Travel Trailers & found a fifth wheel we really like (fingers crossed the “deal” will go through).
But, I couldn’t let another day go by without saying thank you for some treasures that arrived this past week! Don’t you just LOVE MAIL LOVE??????????? You know, when you aren’t expecting anything in the mailbox but, BILLS! And then low & behold treasures!!!!!
Like this little parcel of love from Susie of Vintage Susie & Wings (otherwise known as Susie Pearl to me) After her visit to Texas & her first visit to Magnolia Pearl’s booth at Marburger Farm Fall 2010 show, Ms Susie was star struck with Pearl & she still is as shown by the way she wrapped this treasure she sent using some of her much loved lace found at this years Round Top adventure.
Inside was all sorts of wonderful paper ephemera. Old religious cards, vintage birthday cards & a couple of great old cabinet cards. Also, she hand made me this sweet chandi crystal that says THANK YOU! Thank you indeed Ms Susie! You are a dear & I will treasure my goodies but, most of all our times spent together. HUGS SWEET FRIEND!
And last then a surprise from my new friend Jill of Feathers & Flight.
I hope Jill doesn’t mind me “borrowing” her photo of the work of art she created for I am sure she did a much better photography job than I would have. Last week she posted HERE that she had made this beauty for a friend & I left her a comment teasing her that I sure would love to be the friend that received this…
Sure enough when I opened my package of beautiful Mother of Pearl buttons
I had ordered from her shop Junkin Gypsies she had included that beautiful little canvas named “Simply Sassy”. I was thrilled beyond belief. Jill does the most beautiful digital art work & I know I have shared it with you before with dreams of learning to do the same but, she is such a talented sweet soul in soooooooooooo many other mediums too. So be sure to click on the links above (any name in orange) & it will take you to the blog(person) or post talked about. Each of these gals are a friend just waiting for you to meet & love. WHAT WOULD WE DO WITHOUT OUR BLOGS & ART EVENTS WHERE WE ARE BLESSED TO MEET “LIKE SOULS”?
So, as Coop blows out that candle & another year starts for that sweet boy that Nonna loves so much… I want to say THANK YOU SWEET FRIENDS for being in my life & my heart. Mail love is sweet but, not nearly as sweet as the sweetness of the friend behind it. I LOVE YOU GIRLFRIENDS you give sparkle & life to my days!
Have a wonderful week!
