Being Blog Grateful...

Being Blog Grateful is saying I am grateful for the wonderful friends I have made through blogging. My friend Dorthe is across the world in Denmark. Many of my followers are also followers of Dorthe. Here is her blog link for you to check out if you are new to her.
Dorthe sent me this surprise package and I was thrilled to open it up and see what was inside. The wrapping is vintage wallpaper with a soft ribbon tied to hold it together.

Inside is this beautiful lavender sachet pillow with lovely embroidery and some lace and buttons. The smell is divine. Dorthe also included this amazing piece of driftwood she collects while on her beach walks. There is some black sequined trim wound around the driftwood. And a lovely piece of muslin ribbon that she has handstamped with a fancy bee design.

I am truly grateful for my blog friend Dorthe. She is not only a lovely lady she is also an extraordinary creative artist. When you visit her blog you will see the amazing dolls she makes and sells.
Thank you most sincerely Miss Dorthe. I am enchanted with my gifts you sent me. I treasure them as I treasure your blog friendship. The world is much smaller when we have such great communications via blogging and art in common.
Did you ever see driftwood as creative as this? Have you tried stamping on muslin fabric?
I am inspired by these generous gifts. I am inspired by Dorthe and her blogging.
Being grateful is so heartwarming.
