Little Surprises Touch The Heart ..

Hello my dear friends,

little surprises are the ones that touch the heart the most I find.
They are always unexpected and make your heart smile because someone was thinking of you.

 I had approached a dear friend of mine and asked for her help when I had bought a few items off  Ebay and the shipping to Canada was an issue for one of the sellers and very expensive from the other. I asked her if she would mind me having the items shipped to her and then for her to forward them to me and without any delay her answer was 'yes' and I was so grateful!

 My parcel has now arrived here in Canada from Georgia and when I opened it I was expecting to only find the items I had bought and nothing else but that wasn't so.

 I opened the box and underneath some neat old tissue pattern sheets I found a little surprise.

Little vintage buttons were scattered all over the inside of the box and bits and pieces of lovely vintage laces was laying on top ~ oh  my! There was also a little card with a few sweet words to me from my dear friend Dawn of  'The Feathered Nest'. She is the sweetest lady and made my day with her unexspected gift. I messaged her to say thank you for her little surprise and her reply was ...

"I hardly put anything inside at all. I just thought it would be pretty to have the bits and bobs inside when you open it up rather than just packing paper."

 Dawn ~ you are the sweetest! Thank you again for helping me out ~ I really appreciate it so much and thank you so much for your sweet gift too.

Like most people, I just love little surprises.
That is a part of the reason I now do my 'Christmas To Come' giveaway. I love giving someone the same little feeling of excitement and hopefully joy that I received from my dear friend.
