I wanted to share with you a couple of sweet gifts that I received in the mail. Both of these parcels really are random acts of kindness!
The first package was from a former customer, Sandra Blanks who reads my blog and wanted to send a few handmade gifts for the baby!! Can you believe how precious these hangers and hat are?? Clara will be so adorable in this beautiful hat Sandra, I just love it (Emily loves it too!!!) and the hangers are so sweet I may have to keep them in my artroom!!! I want to make Clara a few tiny dresses for this coming Spring and after she outgrows them I want to display them!! Thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness, Sandra ~
Another random act of kindness came from a sweet friend, Sharon Kyser....just look at these gorgeous handmade cards and some were created from photos on my blog!!! I just love them!! All of the cards are just beautiful ~ Sharon, what a sweet thing for you to do!! Thank you so very much!!
The next few things are things that I've had awhile and just wanted to show you. For no particular reason other than their simplicity makes them beautiful.
I bought this from a sweet friend, Sharon, at The Plum Tree several years ago. I love the tone on tone look, it's candlewicking I think. Such simple stitching but it has a beautiful look to it, don't you think? It would be so easy to make your own pattern and make something similar to this. Or even to just freestyle stitch and then frame it ~ I love the handiwork.
This little thing has nothing to do with anything else in this post except that it's a treasure. I think of the tiny foot that wore it. Who did they grow up to be? This little lone shoe will never be turned into a pincushion while I own it. To me, it's already a small piece of artwork ~
Seeing the beauty in friends, my family, our surroundings and the little treasures that make our house a home
makes me smile ~
Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday sweet friends,
