A big hug and a thank you.  In my first year of blogging I have become friends with some of the sweetest bloggers.  Today when I got the mail (which sometimes is the highlight of my day!!!) my mailman Jim said "I have a package for you". Woooooo Hoooooo love when I get something besides sale flyers and bills in the mail.

This lovely package was from Debra at Commonground. http://www.commonground-do.com/
  She is the sweetest ever and I know a lot of you know her and how helpful and kind and talented she is. She is one of those special bloggers in blog land.  Even though I have never met her in real life I just feel like I have known her forever. She is truly an angel.

 When she featured my vintage bike( the one in my header) many months ago on her blog I was so new to blog land I did not even know how to do a link back and she was so patient and kind and told me how to do it and did not make me feel like an idiot. Which I felt like many times in the beginning of starting up my blog as I was trying to learn and navigate blog land.

You know there are no classes on starting up a blog or places to go to figure things out on a blog you just kind of learn as you go along.  Sometimes a sweet veteran blogger like Debra comes to your rescue.

Debra sent me this beautiful necklace today and I had to show it to all of you. Debra not only has a beautiful blog but she also sells her one of a kind vintage jewelry pieces on Etsy.  http://www.debrasvintagedesign.etsy.com/

Thank you Debra for this kind gift I received today.  It made my day.  I am going junking tomorrow to the flea market and I will wear it with pride and hopefully it will bring me luck to find some treasures.  Debra I am so glad I met you in blog land you really are one of the sweetest out there.  Thank you I am blessed to call you friend.  Hugs!!


Debra uses vintage keys with some bling added and vintage little jewelry charms to embellish.  So so pretty. My camera does not do this pretty bling justice.

Look at the vintage clock face and cross and pretty heart charm.

Debra added some rhinestone bling on the key. So pretty.

I have to say right in the middle of my day I get this sweet surprise.   This necklace also reflects Debra, she is kind, talented and spiritual and this necklace reflects those beautiful parts of her and her life.  Thank you Debra I truly love this necklace.  Please check out Debra's blog if you have not yet (I can't believe anyone out there does not know Debra's blog!!!!) and her Etsy shop. She has a lot of really cute  one of a kind necklaces.

  1. Just beautiful, Kris! Debra is a real gem and very friendly. I bought one of her necklaces as a gift to myself {almost three years ago}. I remember because she had a number tag on one that said 47 and that was my age that year.
