So Sweet And Kind ..

Hello my dear friends,

today I would like to share something that happened to me just recently but I didn't have time to share it with you until now.

A few weeks ago I received an e-mail from a sweet lady called Nancy by mistake. She did what so many of us have done before, she emailed me something that was meant for someone else. In this e-mail she wrote that she had found some lovely vintage lace that she thought I would like and she would like to send it to me.

I wrote back to her, telling her that I was touched by her kind thought but she didn't have to send me anything but that if she chose to it would be so sweet and kind. Shortly after that I received another e-mail from Nancy telling me about he mistake she made and that she felt a little bad about it. I again replied that it was OK and she needn't worry about it but she replied that she would still like to send me something little.

And that was my little story until a day last a few weeks ago when the mail man placed a large envelope into my mail box. I must admit that I had forgotten all about this until then but then reading the senders name it all came back and put a smile on my face.

Well ... my smile just kept growing as I opened the pink bow that held the green paper together and it just kept on and on! It was just like being a little kid at Christmas and that gift you didn't expect was suddenly there!

These are all the lovely treasures I found all wrapped up ...


So many lovely pieces and I must say that the lace, which is Victorian, is my most favourite part of all of them.
 Oh dear Nancy ... you are so sweet!
 Thank you so, so much for gifting me with all those lovely treasures! It was my very own little Christmas on October 29th!

It would nice for you to pop by and visit me here at Todolwen soon again.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
