Gifts of Friendship...

I am truly grateful for the friends I have made through blogging.  My life is richer and I am very blessed.
Recently I had a birthday and I have been receiving wonderful gifts from many of my dear friends.
I will share some of my treasures with you and therefore you may see the generous hearts creative people possess.  Here is my package from Dorthe of Den Lille Lade.  I know you already follow her all the way to Denmark and back.

This lace collage is so beautiful.  The time Dorthe took to create this is as precious as the gift itself.  I have not seen many round collages with all the lacilicious bits and pieces that only Dorthe can put together so well.

Here is my card.  A beautiful hand made angel to watch over me.  I am certainly blessed to share Dorthe's friendship.  Thank you from my heart and soul Dear Dorthe.

This is another wonderful gift I have received.  This time from my faithful pen pal friend Dogwood.  She loves pink.  Please check out all the creative play Dogwood does on her pinkdogwoodblossom blog.  We have been sending little gifties back and forth for over two years after having met online through April National Letter Writing month.  We live just a few miles apart but have never met...yet.

The cute little box with the coordinating paper and ribbon contains tiny little rusty garden tools and a garden of paper flowers to tend.  This brings such a smile to my face.  Thank you so much Dogwood my dear friend.

Today must be brought to you by the letter "D". Dorthe, Dogwood and now Donna!  This package came from my friend Donna of Brynwood Needleworks.  I know you follow Donna!!  She is a seamstress with the most elegant touch.

From fabric Donna creates the most lovely and perfectly sewn luncheon/dinner napkins. These are truly beautiful.  Just for the record I do not intend to have food and its messy droppings fall on these.  No!  I want to enjoy them in a unique way of display.  Ideas are formulating in my head.

See all the detail Donna does?  The Brynwood label which is very professional and smart.  The leaf stitching around the edging of each napkin.  Thank you Dear Donna for thinking of me and sharing your gift of creativity with me.  I am very blessed.
I hope you like seeing all the beautiful creations made by wonderful and talented and generous friends.  I have lots more to share with you in future posts.  
Our weather is quite warm this week.  I remember October is always a surprise as Mother Nature figures out what she wants to do just before the leaves turn spectacular colors.  Every year as I volunteer at the local Chamber of Commerce I get phone calls asking me, "When is the best time to come to see the Fall colors?"  If I were Mother Nature I would know that answer...however I must be polite with the callers and simply say something to the effect of, "I'm not certain as we have not had the cold snap that is required for the leaves to turn completely."  Helloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...
As September is winding to a close I am enjoying the slower pace just before the mad holiday rush that engulfs us as the extended holiday season comes rushing towards us at its frantic pace.  
Creative Bliss to each and every one.  Thank you for being such a big part of my every day.  I adore reading your comments and send you each happy hugs...
