What a Nice Surprise

Yesterday, after I got home, I found a surprise in my mail box. 

My friend Em, sent me a package.  In this package was a sandwich box. 

Curious… I open it…

And look what I found!  
What a nice surprise!  A pretty blown glass heart necklace.  

Em, always has a way to bring a smile to your face – a kind word, or gesture.  I think she lives to bring a smile to someone.  🙂     Thanks Em!!     PS… I think sandwich box is a cute and novel way to give a gift. 🙂

I started on my handbag today.  I decided to change up the pattern a bit.  To some you that isn’t a surprise.  🙂   
I couldn’t find the quilted fabric, the pattern called for, or at least none that I liked. So I picked fabrics out of my stash and quilted the sides.  I added pockets to the outside, with a contrasting trim.  I plan to add pockets on the inside and make a matching organizer to go in it.    I will post pics as soon as I get it done.  
I also crocheted two dishcloths today.  I have paired them with the flower dishcloth, to make a set.  I plan to add coordinating scrubbers to them. 

This set will go into a “Moving” gift basket, for a friend who is moving out of of state, in the next week or so.

What five things will you always find on you?

 Have a great Sunday!!
God bless and keep you,
My answer to yesterday’s question:  The nicest thing said to me… a friend recently told me, the first time she saw me, she saw the love of God shining through me.  That, blessed me beyond words.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
