“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul” (Henry Ward Beecher)
This post is full of thanks, for gifts of the heart, a beautiful Giveaway I won and my gratitude for being a Featured Artist at Cindy Adkins’ Whimsical Musings on-line magazine.
The other day, in the mail I received a package from Marie (lost Bird Studio) . I know from past experience, from winning one of Marie’s Giveaways, just how generous a soul she is but this time it wasn’t that I had won a Giveaway, it was purely for no reason other than Marie is so generous and giving.
Here is a close-up of the card she made, or is it a card …..
because this card when you flip it over has a pocket and look at all the delights that are tucked inside. Also the attention to detail, little words, scraps of text papers, a heart shaped button.
A ticket which states “Good For One Hug Anytime” which is really cute
Marie also included a wee lavender pillow she had made with a distinctly French twist. This is already sitting on my bedside table.
“Thank You” always seems to be so inadequate when someone sends such thoughtful gifts and goes to so much trouble to package with care. These are all such little treasures to me.
Today in the mail, a package from Canada. A stunning Giveaway I won over at Wood and Fabric. Michelle’s fabric hanging is also a pocket. Beautiful lace and buttons and a wooden plague and the two speckled feathers peeking out.
I will get so much pleasure looking for the right spots to display the gifts from Marie and my prize from Michelle.
As we know, gifts can come in all forms. Cindy Adkins’ has presented me with the gift of being one of the Featured Artists at her on-line magazine, which is such an honour.
As many of you will know, Cindy is not only an incredible Mixed Media artist but she always takes the time to showcase other artists, no matter what their preferred media is, it could be stamping, fabric, jewellery, etc. This week I am featured alongside Zoe and Marie two immensely talented artists. If you haven’t visited their Blogs before then why not take the time to pop on over and see their amazing artwork.
So I am sure you will agree, I am one Lucky Lady to have received such amazing gifts, none of which I take for granted. Lynne x
