Sweet Surprise

Today as I was rushing through my day trying to get as much done as I can with Christmas only one week away  when I got a little Act of Kindness that I would like to share with all of you.

Susan from Must Love Junk and I have become friends over this past year in blogland.  We met last summer when Susan and her hubby Keith were visiting Chicago.  Susan and I hit it off right away and have been good friends since.

Today I received a cute little package from my buddy and I wanted to show it off and say Thank You.  


Inside the box was this light grey and white stenciled box with a crown hanger and little horn playing cherub.  Susan knows how I am changing and embracing light grey with my tan and white decor .

Look how stickin cute that cherub and box are.  I think Susan told me she got this from her friend Lori's shop in Ohio near where Susan lives.  It is chippy and oh so me.  Love this box.  I have already moved it around the house to several places to see where I want it to hang.  I am like a little kid with a new toy.



The cherub is making his way around my house.  Right now he is in my garden planter in the transformed hall bathroom.  I think he looks super cute in the garden planter for some Christmas decor.





We have so many sweet angels in our lives and Susan is not only a sweet angel but a wonderful friend.  Thank you Susan for thinking of me and sending me these sweet treasures.

It was a nice distraction to slow down today and open my box and see that a special angel was thinking of me with this lovely gift.  This is what the season is about when you can stop for a minute and know someone special took time to think of you in a special way.

I LOVE It and You my wonderful bloggy friend.

  15. Kris it IS stinking cute!! I'm in love with it too! What a sweet friend to send you such well loved treasures. It's so wonderful to have special bloggers become real friends in your life. Marie and I are the same way, something clicked instantly and we are such dear friends now. There may be a lot of miles between Ohio & Mississippi but blogging and phone make them disappear!

    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!!

    Blessings, Edie Marie
