I received the most precious gift(s) from a reader named Ruth. She and I have communicated back and forth for some time now. This package came in the mail and I was almost in tears going thru all of the goodies in the box.
There were these two beautiful hatboxes filled to the brim with these....
A beautiful assortment of Blue Willow children's dishes.
You may recall that I have some of these and am always excited when I pick up a few pieces at sales.
This is the darling card she sent with the package. Do you think it and my entry wallpaper are related?
She wrote the sweetest note and I will treasure it always.
As if that was not enough, she sent me a beautiful yellow shoe - MC COY!!!!!! She knows me pretty well.
But, look what she made for my dollhouse - she crocheted these tiny doilies and a small rug - but, look at the tiny potholders!! I put a dime beside them so you could see how tiny they are. Amazing talent this woman has. And the little white handtowel has a hand embroidered flower on it.
I cannot wait to start on my dollhouse and use these precious gifts.
Thank you so much Ruth!!
One thing I have learned for sure, is that bloggers are undoubtedly the sweetest and most giving people I have ever met. I just cannot tell you how many people wrote me wanting to know what they could do to help Brenda with her move. Such compassion and love for someone they have never met.
The move is done and finalized. Brenda is a new person in her new home. There's a lot of confusion until she gets everything "just right", but I keep telling her it just takes time. But, thank you all for your concern and love for her.
Stay tuned for a fun project tomorrow!
