A package, for me!

Sitting right there on the doorstep was a box addressed to me, and guess who it's from?

Rosie, at rosieswhimsy! I was so excited!!! Rosie is a very special person and one of my daily visits. She has a wonderful blog about her home and garden and a great etsy shop! Be sure to take some time to visit her.

I wanted to tear right into the box, but first I went and got my camera.





I opened the box and there was pretty red tissue paper...





I opened the card and there was a sweet note from Rosie...




She sent me this for no reason other than to say "I'm special". A random act of kindness from dear Rosie.
And here is the surprise ~ a beautiful handsewn bag in a soft green fabric with white roses! It's beautiful!


I love it!

Look at all the detail! I love the accent rose! And there's a pocket inside with a zipper!


And that's not all...





She also sent me a lovely handsewn apron in more beautiful fabric, and it has a big pocket in the front!

Thank you, Rosie, for your sweet act of kindness and your thoughtfulness. You made my day!

What a nice surprise for you Donna. Who knew we would all be running for our cameras every time a package arrives? :) Loved seeing your garden pics. I haven't planted anything yet but spinach. But plan to plant next week. ~ Lynn
