the sharing spirit continues

I marvel at all of the wonderful people I have met through this blog and all of the kindness I have witnessed as I visit my favourite blogspots and share comments and doses of inspiration.

I was the recipient of a random act of kindness. My friend Sherry runs the Dragonfly Suites and Spa (imagine the coincidence - we nicknamed our own house the dragonfly) and after seeing my cowboy Christmas tree, she sent along an especially nice parcel. It contained the cutest vintage Christmas cards...

... aren't they something? They belonged to her mother and I am honoured to have them. I think I'm going to make them into a cute banner for the cowboy tree so people can see them and enjoy them, or maybe string them across my mantle with some checked ribbon!

And guess what else? She sent a tiny cookie sheet - a miniature with a bow on it. If you look closely, you can spot it in with the cards. And below, have a gander at the lovely apron Sherry included. It is the most delightful vintage christmas pattern. It's been well used and loved someone special, you can tell by the little spots on it, and that to me just adds to the charm and the sentimental value of it. It makes me want to go into my kitchen and make mashed potatoes with gravy.

Thank you, Sherry! I love this whole parcel. You were so kind to share these treats with me and I will take good care of them!

Oh Saucy!
I am pleased you like the little treasures! When I saw your "cowboy" Christmas tree I just knew these cards would be happy with you. My Mom would also be happy.
The apron was in my Grandmother's things. I had thought someday I would use the fabric for something and wrapping paper for you was the perfect something.
We are spending a quiet January at home with the birds.
