Since I have started blogging, I have met some pretty wonderful kindred souls in blogland. I have experienced a lot through blogging and following along right there with other bloggers.
laughed out loud
been challenged by
and have received so much
inspiration from these women.
One of those women (whose name is Donna) with a kind and generous heart reached out to me and told me that she really wanted to send me something. It was going to be a surprise she said. It wasn't my birthday. I hadn't won a giveaway. I wondered why she would want to send something to me. To me really? A surprise? I was so curious. I was intrigued. I was humbled. Well today my surprise was waiting for me at my door. Like a little child on Christmas morning, I couldn't wait to see what was inside. I carefully opened the box.
Inside the first thing I saw was
this beautiful card.
The card is beautiful
and I am sure handmade
by Donna herself.
I just love that.
Inside the box was this beautiful beaded purse, lots of sparkly earrings, and a gorgeous mirrored tray.
And the gifts kept coming.
These darling porcelin dolls.
This cute wire bird basket.
Beautiful vintage china
and an antique skeleton key.
Donna, you thought I might enjoy these things
and you were right.
I love everything you sent me.
I am grateful and I am humbled that you would think of me, a fellow blogger.
Even though we have never spoke on the phone or met in person, I feel so special and loved.
I'll be on the road tomorrow for my soldering class so I won't be able to reply to your comments, but I still will be reading every little precious comment and email from you my friends. Hope this week gifts you with many blessings.
She is a decoy and is quite large (about 19 inches long). She is a raven. Don't get her confused with a crow. Ravens are quite large and are abundant here in Arizona. Some ravens grow even bigger than this.
