I’m late, I’m late, for a very important … Thank You!

Some time back, a very thoughtful and generous blogging friend sent me some magazines brought back from a trip to the States. Well I was quite thrilled to think that a new friend had thought to send me this sweet gift. But little did I know, something sweeter and yet more generous would turn up in the parcel!! A lovingly handmade gift from a talented friend...


from Chic Little Shop’

Now I feel terrible I haven’t posted about this earlier but Julie had been overseas for sometime and I wanted to be sure she was back in the blogging saddle when I showed you all how talented she is [and then I became a little forgetful thru the busy pace of life]. Sometimes we are very lucky to find friends that shower us with kindness for no other reason than just simple goodness.

This beautifully crafted bag has become a much loved treasure of mine.

Boy I guess she did spoil you....but who better to then you. My favorite gifts are those made my the giver themselves. I'm sure you will treasure it.

Meant to get back to comment on your previous post...running behind these days.
You should be very proud of your grandfather. So wonderful to have such fond memories of him and so many pictures. I have none of mine.
Boo Hoo!
