Thank You Linda!

Oh my will spring ever come? We actually got snow last night there's still a dusting on the ground outside and it's lightly snowing now.Last night I took Dad supper over slippery turkey potpie,homemade loaf of chedder bread and peanut butter brownies.It was a nice visit.Things have been hectic here some good,some not good always seems like I'm almost to the finish line then stumble right before reaching it.I love life just sometimes wish I could slow down...Wanted to share a sweet gift my friend Linda http://parkersparadise.blogspot.com/ sent just because she was thinking of me.Linda is such a sweet and giving person.Always taking time for a kind comment or emailing.I consider her a dear friend even though we never meet in person.It's funny how some people who never met click more than people you actually know.That's why we blog to meet kindred spirits people who share the same thoughts,decorating,interest and so much more.. Ok I know I'm being sappy again on to the gift...Linda loves to do makeovers and sent the wood bowl she made over.Inside was a burlap liner and some wonderful rag eggs she made.I've been wanting to try to make some of these eggs but haven't found time so this was wonderful to have someone make them for me...
Two pewter candlesticks and some dipped candles Linda made as well.So Thank You Linda for thinking of me.Your kindness means so much and really brightened my day! Warm Blessings!~Amy
