After growing up and moving out on my own
I discovered a very important lesson that has
stuck with me my whole life.
IF you don't expect anything
you will NOT be disappointed.
So, while I have weathered many disappointments
over the years I must say that I am
by the overwhelming generosity of those
Both in loving support and gifts when
you least expect them.
Kris @ Junk Chic Cottage
had this in her home
and I admired it.
She was changing things up in her home and
SENT IT TO ME!
Can you believe it?
I still can't!
Is that an amazing sign?
I have two different places in mind to hang it.
I will show it to you in its permanent home
once I get an area redone.
This is from my wonderful daughter, Mimi,
mama to Big Boy E, CharlesInCharge &
Baby Bright Eyes.
This was kind of a "thank you, Mom" for
helping her with the new baby for a few weeks.
It was a labor of love - no gift necessary-
but I got one anyway.
It is a beautiful piece.
It is an Irish Crystal
It is gorgeous----
about 10" tall and weighs about 10#.
The light glances off it in the lit built in china hutch
Then, unexpectedly, I got another
sweet little surprise
in the mail from my friend, Jettie
She KNOWS I love to read.
She said these are page turners.
I always have a "car" book going-
one I read after getting coffee
or waiting for someone somewhere.
Oh- I can't wait to start the first one!
And last, but not least,
perhaps my favorite gift of all
Given to me on Sunday morning
by some sweet little girls that were hanging out
in front of the house in weather that looked like this!
Nestled among the shells they found something special to bring to the house
"JUST FOR NANA"
they told Papa!
Yes- it is my favorite gift EVER!
It's a rock heart!
It should go nicely with the collection
I have in my head!
