Care Packages


Beth at be yourself everyone else is taken sent me a cheer me up gift this week. I tell you, I lucked out this week with sweetness and delight. Beth sent me a sweet note on one of her hand crafted cards along with one of her artsy personal one of a kind little journals. I do like artsy things and like I told Beth, I will be smiling with every entry.

Thank you for the sweet gift, Beth. Yes, I am feeling much better this week.




The picture in the red frame is a photo that Sara at Cottage Garden Studios sent to me this week. The top picture is the photo. Isn't it gorgeous? What stunning colors! I tried to take a close up of the photo in the frame but the glass made a glare.
I am so happy with this photo. I am in the process of changing our little hippie kitchen from blue and yellow to red and black and white. This is the first wall piece to change to the new colors. I am getting excited now to have the kitchen accessories with the new colors.
Vavavoom!

Sarah contacted me and told me she was going to send me a little gift. A just because gift. Just because she is so generous and can spot when someone needs a lift.
Thank you, Sarah, for your sweet gift.

So I call these care packages. They were sent to me because two very sweet bloggers really do care. The blog world is a great place to be, isn't it?

"just because" gifts are the most beautiful of all. Lovely journal (love the words!) and gorgeous photo! You'll have a blast doing the kitchen up in your new color scheme, TechnoBabe. You're right - the blogging world is an amazing place.

"Care packages" is just the right name for these thoughtful gifts. I'm glad for the lift they gave you.

I care, too. I'm also hoping you're feeling better, but I tend to procrastinate when it comes to mailing things instead of spur-of-the-moment offerings. Which reminds me: I've got two sympathy cards to send!

I'm sorry you've not been feeling great. What beautiful gifts though. That photo is absolutely magical - I love it.

Cool. Always nice to get a little surprise.

My kitchen has always been red, white and black, and will be as long as it's up to me. (I am the cook-of-the-house). I like the 1930s look. I just repainted myself. If I could trade my stove for my grandmother's old gas Hotpoint, I would. The kind you had to light with kitchen matches? Yep.

No updates for me, thank you.

Sarah said...

Hugs and love to you, Sarah

Nice. It is like the paying it forward thing a few of us did a couple of years ago. Nice gifts. Glad that the kitchen is shaping up.
