Spring Blessings!

I have made so many wonderful friends through blogging. 

Ariadne from Greece and I are long time blog buddies. We share the love of the sea and decorate our homes with the things we enjoy. She sent me a gift of friendship....

 

sea glass, seashells and broken pieces of pottery from the beach where she lives along with a cute little bottle to make a tiny aquarium and a postcard. (pictured at the top)

 

Of course the package with neat stamps and even the chocolate box she packed everything in added to the fun. Thank you Ariadne for your friendship and this thoughtful gift. What treasures!

 

A couple of months ago I won a giveaway given by my sweet friend, Gina. She has a beautiful blog HERE and loves to have giveaways. What a joy to receive a fun package from her! Thanks Gina!

 

And look at this precious Spring linen and beautiful card I got from Arlene from Nanaland. We are both 'Nanas' and love so many of the same things. Thanks girlfriend!

 

I know I am blessed and I hope you are too. 

Happy Spring!

Thanks for the shout out Diane!! And you are a lucky girl!! Those chocolate sea horses...adorable. Sea Horses are special to me because my daddy was a Sea Horse in the Army. They were the Army equivalent of the Navy SeaBees.

Okay...I just finished "catching up" with your posts and just saw your beautiful family and grands! I didn't comment on everything as I expect you don't go back that far and check but just wanted to say what a great time you must have had with them...everyone had beautiful smiles on their faces! Sorry I haven't been by...I couldn't believe how long it had been. I can't let that happen! I miss you when I don't stop by! Have a great day! Hugs!

What lovely gifts - the best gift, though, is the connection you've made, across the miles and ocean.
