I wanted to take a minute and do this special post as a special thank you to a wonderful person in "Blog Land"
I have said this many times since I started blogging almost 2 years ago that you meet the sweetest and kindest people out there.
I have shared so much with so many of you. What is so beautiful about Blogland while it seems strange but true you develop some of the most wonderful friendships.
We cheer each other on with our projects and find wonderful inspiration from each other. We have great like minded people to turn to when you have questions about a decor change or a new idea. That is the beauty of Blog Land.
The best part is that you form wonderful friendships with people from all over that you normally would not even know were out there if it was not for Blog Land!
Every once in a while you bond with someone(s) in this Land of Blog. Never meeting in person just sharing thoughts, ideas and many sweet and personal emails back and forth.
I have done that with a blogger. I know some of you know her . It is Carol from Art and Sand.
Carol is my hero not only because she is sweet and talented but she cares and she had cared for many years for her students. Carol is a teacher.
Teachers are my hero's because they give so much to shape the minds of the young people that will be in charge some day when we are all gone.
That takes a lot of work, dedication, patience and love. To teach our youth and prepare them for the world we live in and enhance their minds is an incredible feat. All teachers are my hero's and they do all of this for not a lot of money but because they care.
Carol just recently retired from her many years of loving and molding the youth's of tomorrow and now she has time to be home with her beautiful and talented hubby and family.
Carol creates the most beautiful vignettes of color through out her home. Yep! that's right the white and cream girl here bonded with the colorful girl out in California! LOL! It just happens and Carol and I have become pretty wonderful blog friends.
I had been having a rough couple of weeks and Carol knew about it and besides her kind words of support and hope she also put together something special to send to me.
The door bell rang and my Mailman Jim was at the door with this package. It was from Carol. Carol sent this to make me feel up lifted and better. To make me smile.
It did just that and I want to share what Carol made for me with all of you.
|Carol sent me this beautiful little pillow slip. She knows my love of white and creams so she did this pillow up in those colors. Some of the squares are a light cream and some are white. All are gorgeous.|
|What really made this special was the little silver piece that was embossed with JUNK from a spoon or fork handle. Ohhh I just loved it. Look at the sweet rose flowers and the different pretty pieces of fabrics she used. Carol I just love this. :)|
|I put this pretty right on my favorite chair in my living room. I love this chair it was a special gift from my hubby for Christmas. So now I have this lovely hand made gift from Carol to add to this chair.|
|I love to sit in this chair and read or sometimes close my eyes and doze off into a nap! Thank you sweet Carol for this beautiful and heart felt gift. I am blessed to know you and I hope to come to California some day and meet you in person. I know it will happen! Thank you sweet friend. This gift is precious and you made my day.|
If some of you do not know Carol please visit her beautiful and fun blog Art and Sand and look around her beautiful Beach Cottage Home. You will love her and her wonderful blog.
Thanks again Carol. Hugs and Kisses xxoo
Have a great start to the new week everyone.
