A wonderful surprise

Today when I got home from work, there was a package on my door step. I looked down to see the return address of a sweet lady who reads my blog. We have emailed back and forth a few times. She sent me some great recipes and pictures and then told me my front door was her wallpaper.....flattered I was for sure. I have admired her beautiful needlework.
So I opened the pretty card, frame worthy, for sure!


and then............in this pretty bag, LOOK!! Isn't this beautiful? It has 2011 stitched on the back too. I was just so touched, there are no words to describe how her kindness has touched me.


So a big Thank You Carole!  Merry Christmas to you my friend.

Donna,

I was just checking on your blog to see if you had published any Christmas photos of your beautiful home and I was surprised to see you had included pictures of the Merry Christmas card and pillow. I am humbled to have seen them. I am blessed and truly cherish the friendship we share. Thank you for your kind words!

Love and hugs,
Carole
