Sharin' The Love In Blogland...

These are the components of the project I started yesterday.
Some things may not get used, and I'll save them for another time.
I love working with silk ribbon and beads.
See my favorite fabric underneath?
Another surprise for a special someone.
I'll share a sneak peek tomorrow.
I know. It's so hard to wait, isn't it?
When I went to the mailbox yesterday, I was greeted
by a big red envelope.
Hmmmm. Where is this from? Near Tampa?
Jeanette? Sweet Jeanette!

Did I miss a special occasion?
Is it my Birthday again so soon?
(Remember - I capitalize my big deal birthdays!)
Was this a giveaway?
The note from Jeanette said that she
just wanted to share a few gifts with me.
Sweet Jeanette really lives up to her name!
I immediately tore into the packaging to find all these lovely gifts...
Just. Because.
A beautiful Longaberger bag that I'm looking forward to using...
A slimline pink wallet (I love pink, too!)
Yummy vanilla tea, and a primitive piece of needlework.
She enclosed the prettiest card with a lovely note.

It's official!
This beautiful woman really is SweetJeanette!
I hope you'll visit her blog and share the love.
I stop in for every new post, and once you stop by,
you'll ask for return invitations, I swear!

Thank you, Jeanette, my dear friend.
We're going to have to get together soon!

I'd love to thank you in person for your generosity.

What a lovely thoughtful friend you have to give you such a gift when least expected. Donna your handwork is just spectacular and it reminds me happily of my grandmother's knitting. Happy creating...

Oh Donna - you're so sweet. Thank you for the sweet comments! It's such a joy to visit and read your blog regularly too!!! I'm so glad you liked your little gifties and will enjoy them! YES! We will have to get together sometime, when our schedules will allow us!
Like I've said before, "I'd love to get to meet my hero!" LOL

Such pretties and it makes you really feel special I know. I decided to take a break and see what my friends are doing. The house is quiet except for the dryer and washing machine going. I am staying home for a while today to catch up on some things that I really needed to do. It has been very cloudy and rainy,but we have managed to escape the bad weather.I have felt better today because of the rain, it helped with the allergies. Have a wonderful Sunday. Your Missouri Friend.

I have just found your site and want to invite you to be my new best friend! Would you consider moving to lovely Washington State in the Pacific Northwest so we can sit in our rocking chairs evenings by the wood stove and create lovely things???I love your site and the things you make. I will be watching from a far and doing my best to recreate some of the pretties you create. I have not beaded and went to the local beading store (Bead Factory) and picked up a needle and thread. I have lots of beads to try it out with. Do you ever do tutorials??
