*Friendship Gifts*

It’s such a blessing to have wonderful blog buddies and I received two gifts this past week that touch my heart.

Linda from Sew What made me a heart, handmade just for me using one of her Grandmother’s doilies. It makes me feel so special to receive such a thoughtful gift. I will treasure it always. She also made a pretty heart garland that I already have hanging over the top of one of my bookcases in my bedroom. The sachet she included smells wonderful and their was a sweet note, too.

Thank you so very much, Linda!

I used PicMonkey’s new effect, Space for this photo.

And even though Donna at Cottage Days and Journeys is going through a really tough time right now, she had a sweet giveaway and I won some of her beautiful notecards featuring her very own photography. I send a lot of cards but I will keep these for awhile to enjoy.

Thank you, Donna. I’m keeping you and your hubby in my prayers.

My blog friendships mean the world to me. I like having lots of girlfriends, don’t you?

hi Diane! I haven't been to your blog since I have been zeroing in on my Thrifty Fashions. Blogging is strange, huh? You follow someone, but it is like in numbers only, sometimes. I still like you and all it is just that I'm in a different part of town or something. Thank you for stopping by and keep coming back, k? (hug)

What would I do without the sweet blogger friends I've made? Lovely gifts.

I need to do another give away this summer. I'll have to start thinking about what I can give that anyone would enjoy. hmmmm....

What sweet things! I love that heart and from one of her Grandma's dollies...so thoughtful. Love the note cards also. I'm getting unpacked a little at a time. I'm anxious to get decorating also, but unpacking must come first!
