The kindness of friends ~

I've met so many wonderful friends in the last few years that I've had my blog. I'm totally blown away by the kindness that is shown here! From friends who don't even have a blog but love to send such wonderful treasures.

Vicki from WA sent me the sweetest parcel and I wanted to share it with you. As I opened the box my eyes first fell on a beautiful dried hydrangea bloom! Omgoodness, I'm in LOVE with hydrangeas and to have them dried is wonderful. I love to drop them in a glass apothecary jar or place them under a cloche with a few other small treasures.

I noticed a little bit of wording through the brown grasses and pushed them aside to reveal this precious saying:

Inside of the burlap bag were two of the most wonderful fairy hooks ever!!! There silhouettes even remind me of the flower fairies!

Dear Vicki, I LOVE them both and can't wait to hang them in my home....thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness.

A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

We're enjoying Brent and Emily so much ~ I hope that you're having a wonderful week.
Wishing you a very happy Thursday dear friends,
xxoo, Dawn

Your surprise gift is wonderful. I especially love the fairy hooks! I've never seen any quite like them.

Thanks also for the pictures from your new book. They're great.
