Gifts Arrived by Mail!

Hi Everyone!


I do hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I sure did. And on this beautiful, cool, autumn Monday I wanted to share with you some of the things that happen during the past couple of days.


Well, the first thing I wanted to share were actually two beautiful gift packages that arrived via mail from two very sweet and wonderful blogging friends.

The first came all the way from Argentina. Monica from Sueños Cumplidos, which means Granted Dreams in Spanish, is a very talented crafter that makes the prettiest things. One day, out of the blues, she emailed me telling me that she wanted to send me....ME, a little something. I was very touched and humbled by her kindness. Thank you so very much Monica. I love my gifts. I will cherish them always.

Monica sent me this beautiful shabby chic cornucopia filled with the sweetest smelling potpourri.

And this adorable wreath. Aren't these the cutest little faces ever? Love them. If you would like to see more of her beautiful work just click on her blog name above and it will take your directly there.

Muchísimas gracias Monica. Siempre llevare en mi corazón tu generosidad. Me encantaron mis regalos. Eres realmente muy talentosa y creativa. Gracias de nuevo querida amiga. Que Dios te bendiga.

My second beautiful gift came from Rebecca at A Gathering of Thoughts. She is a wonderfully talented, inspiring, sweet and lovely person. She was having a giveaway a few days ago and I was one of the lucky winners.

I received one of her gorgeous "Cookie Cards" along with it a very pretty "Thank You" card.

No Rebecca...Thank You! I loved it.

Inside the card you'll find a gingerbread cookie and icing recipe and on the back a beautiful "Christmas Blessing" poem written by Rebecca. Absolutely beautiful Rebecca. Thank you! If you would like to visit Rebecca just click on her blog name above and it will take you to her beautiful blog.

I feel truly blessed and I am sincerely thankful for such wonderful blogging friends.

Thank you again Monica and Rebecca for all your kindness. Tons of love to both of you.

Well everyone, I think this is all that I'll be sharing with you today. I think I will save the rest for tomorrow....Be sure to come back. I'll be sharing with you our Halloween pictures. Can't wait!

Until Next Time.

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. Blessings.

Hugs and Kisses,
