Love In An Envelope...

The mail delivery on Saturday held a surprise for me.
I recognized the return address and anxiously walked back
to the house so that I could open it (with camera in hand, of course!)
The gift is from my friend, Dee Dee at Dee Dee's Craftspot.
I've been reading on Dee Dee's blog that she's been learning to make charms. She recently took a class and was perfecting her technique. Well, girlfriend, let me tell you! Dee Dee, you've got it figured out now, girl! Look at the fabulous key chain my sweet friend created just for me! Acorns! She knows what tickles me! Blue Beads, a heart-embellished charm and acorns...
and when I turned it over, this is what I saw. Perfectly personalized from the studio of one talented Texas girlfriend to her grateful pal in Florida. Thank you, Dee Dee! A proper, handwritten note is on its way to you.
