A Gift and an Award

You may have read a couple of weeks ago while cleaning my china hutch I broke a cherished little creamer. I was so disappointed about that. I had been lucky to replace it the first time it had broken. I love sugar and cream sets like this and now I didn't have a set again. Penny from Lavenderhillstudio promptly left me a comment saying she had just put an extra one she had into the mail for me. I was so surprised and just couldn't believe it. Is that not thoughtful??


Abby and I were sooo excited when the package arrived. It was packed so well. I held my breath as I pulled it out hoping it WAS the right one. It WAS. Aren't they lovely together? Thank you again Penny so much. I'm going to be so careful with this one.

She enclosed this lovely card which is a picture of her porch made by a blogging friend. It is so pretty I'm going to frame it. If you haven't been to Penny's blog yet you should be sure to visit her and you'll love her beautiful mosaic work.
I've also received a lovely award....

I am honoured to have received this lovely Sisterhood Award from Kathy from HappyAtHome. Kathy is a wonderful new blogging friend of mine and I thoroughly enjoy reading her blog each day and look forward to her comments. If you haven't been to her blog yet I know she'll be happy to have you visit. It feels like a sisterhood circle of friends on blogland. Everyone is just so inspiring and supportive and we are like 'sisters' and good friends together. I would like to offer this award to my "sisterhood" of blogging friends who faithfully come to read my blog. You mean so much to my day. Thank you Kathy!

You know, I'm discovering how many truly nice people there are in this world and Penny proves the point.

Don't worry about the mix up on my dog picture. That dog (not mine) is so covered in clothing it's hard to see exactly what is going on!

Evening, Judi! Oh, I'm so glad you're going to try my enchiladas! You'll have to let me know if you like them. I hope you do or you may never come to see me again!

Your post is so heart warming!
I hope, I could have such a present too :)
I have a crystal set , what my mom used to use only in the special occasions as a birthday party or Christmas or visitors. And also my creamer is broken. I am not quite sure, who did it, but I miss that creamer. That kind of things gives lovely memories and are very important.

Pleasant Sunday to you,Judi
