A Surprise Package

I got a package in the mail the other day.  It was from a special blog friend, Kim, at Imagery by Kimberly.  She was having a giveaway, and I was so surprised when I won the gift, which is a framed picture of cute little ducklings.



Many of you know Kim from her former blog, Dear Daisy Cottage.  This blog was the main inspiration for me and the girls to start a blog of our own.



Along with the package, came two lovely cards, which were photos she took herself.





I am grateful to have this framed pictured by a very special person.  Kim sends goodness in everything she writes and every picture she takes.  Every time I look at these sweet ducklings, I will think of her.  She is our sunbeam in life, and we want her to know how much we appreciate that.

I miss Dear Daisy Cottage. Was the first blog I read and inspired my blog also, although it is of a completely different nature. Lucky you, cute gift.

Isn't it wonderful to own something that a dear friend made? These ducklings are just precious, and even more lovely because your friend made them and gave them to you.

Today, my dear friend and fellow blogger came over with a wonderful surprise. Not only did we have so much fun with each other and her daughter, but she surprise me with a piece of her art: an acrylic painting of the moon; it is SO GORGEOUS. It is the style I love, but of a subject that intrigues me.

Enjoy the love my dear. Anita

HI Sheri (:)
Glad you came by ,
now tell me about the comment thing... was it hard before? not sure what I did ,but glad it is easier..LOL
I did add a thing called
''comments awaiting moderation''
..maybe that helped(:)??
I don't like the thing where you have to figure out the codes and numbers do you, man some of those are hard to see.. hugs

Attic Clutter said...
