Sweet mail love!

I received a wonderful package in the mail Friday from a sweet blog reader. Christina had emailed me a few weeks ago wanting my address because she had bought something for me!! I'm so overwhelmed by the kindness displayed here in the land of blog and I'm always surprised at things like this. I obliged and thanked Christina for her thoughtfulness a went on my merry way.

Well today her package arrived!!
I recognized her name right away and thought to myself, "What a sweet random act of kindness" then I glanced at her address and slowly looked at where it came from......Australia!!!! Oh my goodness!!!! I'm so shocked, this little package traveled a long, long way just because Christina wanted to do something nice! Thank you so very much, each and every thing is such a treasure to me!!! Look at these gifts:

Beautiful photographs of her home in Australia! They really are so pretty, worth framing too!

Chocolates, a beautiful pillow cover, ribbons, flower appliques, tiny pearl buttons, pretty lace and the most adorable stitchery kit ever!!!! I really do love each and every item....thank you so much Christina!!!!

Don't you love it all?? Each and every day I'm amazed at the love shown here in the Land of Blog ~ Friends are made, near and far. I'm just so glad I'm here and that I've met so very many wonderful friends.

Wishing you very happy Saturday!!
xxoo, Dawn

You've done a wonderful job photographing them Dawn - they don't look too bad at!
I am so happy that you liked everything. My brother lives in Ohio and he likes a chocolate or two from Australia every now and then too.
Take care

What sweet treasures. You are right, blog friends are wonderful.
I love Maltesers! Yum. When I just have to have some, I head to the British food store in Norcross and buy a few bags. And of course a few other things as well. ;) Can't live without Bisto, Fairy Liquid and a Violet Crunch bar. lol
We need to go there together one day!

What a wonderful surprise! Dawn, I think you are so blessed because you live by the principal, give and it shall be given to you, in good measure, pressed down, and over flowing. You are generous in sharing your time, talent, and treasures with us and it is being returned to you. Thanks for being blessing to me. Have a great weekend!

How utterly sweet! Dawn, I believe in the saying, "What goes around, comes around," and you send out love on a daily basis on your blog, so you get love in return! What wonderful treasures and from so far away!

Hello, one of my favorite people!

I enjoyed looking at all of your "mail love". How do you get your pictures to turn out brightly lit without being washed out by a flash? I have problems with that!

When you have time, stop by and see some of my "handiwork" pictures.
