You can meet the most wonderful people on the internet. I have a group of blogger friends and appreciate everyone of them! I learn new things from them, we share out progress and even disappointments, and I fully enjoy getting to know them! A couple of years back we did a journal swap. My 30-day journal went to Laurie of indulgeyourshelf
. It's a great way to get to know each other. Laurie loves antiquing and, I'm sure never, never gets rid of anything. She makes beautiful things with all the lovely items that she finds. You really need to visit her blog
--it's such a delight in vintage creativity! The other day when I commented on her blog about a little heart that she had made, she sent it to me!!! WOW! What a surprise!
It's hand stitched with a textured pink front (just my color!) and a little darker pink velvet backing. Laurie and I both love buttons, and this little heart is decorated with two lovely buttons and a piece of ribbon trim.
I added a little ribbon to it and hung it on my bedroom door knob.
So every time I go thru the door, a little smile crosses my face as I remember Laurie and her talent!
Thanks so much, Laurie!
What a nice surprise! And what a lovely gift :)
It just feels so good to have your heart touched - your friend touched your heart with a pink (your favorite color) heart. Perhaps she didn't even know that but your heavenly Father did.
Those are the kind of surprises I like! What a generous heart your friend has!
I came across my journal recently and really enjoyed seeing it again! That was such a surprise project -- I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I'm glad we were partners. And super glad you like the little heart!
So sweet! I love it when the internet helps people actually connect with one another. It's great.
Lovely. I know you are enjoying it.
What a lovely gift!!
I've received a lot of gifts from other bloggers - sometimes as part of a gift swap and sometimes as a thank you for a feature I've done. It's wonderful.
A lovely gift you got there too :)
Blogger friends are the best! That's so thoughtful of her!
What a sweet heart, from, obviously, a sweetheart!
What a sweet surprise!
