In the past few months I have received a few unexpected gifts in the mail. First my sister sent me some leaves that have been eaten away by some sort of insect.
I find them so beautiful, and enjoyed playing with them.
Then a blogging friend, Mano sent me some beautiful leaves from her part of the world, plus a lovely postcard of her work.
I so adore all of these leaves, and will treasure them.
And then a few days ago I received this amazing little cup from my blogging friend Norma. She has such a steady hand to be able to paint this tiny wee little bird.
It is amazing, the whole cup is so lovely, and I love how it looks on my Christmas tree.
But once Christmas is over, it will find its home with a small chair I made some time ago.
I feel so very blessed to have so many wonderful blogging friends that always leave me so many wonderful and supportive comments - each one of them a gift that makes me smile and warms my heart.
