Sometimes It Just Takes A Word.

  I wanted to show you how a little word like LOVE can make your heart smile.

Terry painted up this little sign for me with an old piece of wood and some vintage salvage pieces.

Just was a sweet little surprise.












I also want to say thank you to a sweet blogging friend.  Rita from Panolpy sent me a sweet surprise gift in the mail today.

I was outside watering my flowers and my mailman (Terry teases me he is my boyfriend because he likes to bring my mail up to the door and say Hi)!!!!  Anyway my boyfriend mailman came up to me while I was watering and said you got a box in the mail.  I was so excited to get a surprise box in the mail I ran into the house and did not even flirt with my "boyfriend" the mailman lol!

Look how sweetly she had everything wrapped.

I unwrapped everything to find these treasures.  A beautiful vintage Friendship Tribute book Rita found on a recent antique trip.  Love!!! Note cards made by Rita's friend and a lovely white embossed towel and best of all the beautiful sachet pillow made by Rita's sister and filled with Lavender from Rita's garden. 
I put the Lavender sachet pillow on my 3 tiered desk lamp.  Ohhhhhhh smells so heavenly as I sit at my computer.



Rita's sister hand painted the button that she put on  this beautiful pillow sachet filled with the sweet scent of lavender.

Rita your lovely package just made my heart smile today.  I have found and been so blessed with beautiful friendships in the land of blogging.  Rita thank you always for your sweet friendship shared and thank you for this lovely surprise today.
Hugs
Kris


Hope your week is unfolding nicely.  Be sure to come back on Saturday for a sweet and talented blogger to meet in Spotlight.

  7. Um, if your Terry wanted to make those signs and sell them I would buy one. Just sayin. :)

  31. It is always so fun and touching to receive a surprise in the mail (or left on doorstep) and they brighten a day. Always adds a little joy to my day. In last 2 years (since hubby died @ 56 after 37 yrs married) I have had such kindnesses delivered to me which have touched me and helped me get through the last 2 years.
