The kindness and generosity of my fellow bloggers never ceases to amaze me! This week I received two wonderful packages in the mail. And needless to say, my staff thoroughly enjoyed them, too! The first was from Linda at My Shabby Rose Cottage. You see, I won her Shotgun House Giveaway! (If you are not familiar with shotgun houses, click here to visit Linda’s amazing blog and to find out all about them.) And do you see what I won?? A cloche…a real cloche! Now I can participate in Marty’s Cloche Party at A Stroll Thru Life! Woo hoo! Thanks, Linda!
I put it on one of my lace doily plates from Pier 1 and added a little bird’s nest filled with real bluebird eggs form an abandoned nest. Hmmmm…I think I will need to practice before I join Marty’s party.
The second package came from my dear friend Gloria at Happy to Be! This package was “just because” from a very sweet and generous lady! Gloria said that these framed, hand painted plates reminded her of me. Aren’t they wonderful? They are from Helene Studios in Los Angeles in the 1950’s. The colors are perfect for my house, don’t you think? She also sent along this cute little oil and vinegar container. I can add these to my collection of items depicting regional costumes! Thanks, Gloria!
Aren’t our fellow bloggers wonderful people? I am so happy to be a part of blogland and to have the honor of knowing these warm and generous ladies! You add sunshine to my life on a daily basis!
Thanks so much for dropping by! Be sure to join Marty for her second Cloche Party on September 11th! Her last one was such a success that everyone voted to do it seasonally. And this time I won’t have to post pics of cloches that I spied at a local antique shop…I will have my own thanks to Linda! See you next time! A la prochaine!
