A Thank You and a Must Read


I had the delight of finding a package in my mail from Ana, of A Petite Cottage.  She had written the sweetest note!  And, I could hardly wait to open each wrapped treasure.


First, there was this beautiful rose with a pearl center.  It is a pin that I will wear with great joy!


Then, there was the most delicate bracelet of intricately worked ecru.  Oh, my.  The button set everything off in a perfectly feminine and beautiful way... much like Ana is herself.  If you haven't met her yet, she is a sweetheart and you will be pleased you visited. 

Next, I have recently read one of my all time favorite posts.  Debbie, of No Spring Chicken, is a wonderful writer.  She is real and down to earth.  She loves the Lord and her life with her family.  Her poem today about a full-of-memory, heirloom spinning wheel just blew me away (so did the spinning wheel!).  But, the post I love most is:  Soul Food.  If you do any handwork, you will love it, too. 

Thank you to Ana, for the beautiful note and gifts!  And, thank you to Debbie for letting me share this with you!  Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Ana is so sweet. How wonderful that you received such lovely gifts from her. And I do love visiting Debbie -- haven't been by to "see" her in a while. School is cutting into my free time. :/ Will catch up on visiting this weekend. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Hi Tanna, souk or souq is a marketplace. So when I say plant souk, I mean the nursery to go plant shopping. Not sure what we will find now since it is still above 100 every day, but will get a few things for now and more as the temps cool off. Souq al Jumaa is the Friday Souk which is like an open air flea market. When the weather is cooler, we will be going there on some Fridays. :) Have a great day. Tammy

A tender mercy....ain't life grand? we reap what we sow, good or bad, never fails.

Debbie said...

I love Debbie's blog, and I couldn't agree more about the poem with the spinning wheel. It was my absolute favorite of hers. That's saying something since I really like all of them.

And what sweet treasures you got!

Much love,

Thanks for coming over to my new blog and giving me well wishes! Your little "pumpkins" are so adorable. My boys are getting so old now, so it takes me back to see your little ones. I noticed we are both Scorpio's too. That must mean you have birthday coming up! I will follow your blog too.

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, Such beautiful gifts. They are from the heart. Blessings, Catherine

Vickie said...

Hi Tanna - what lovely gifts you received. Both of those items were created with love and pride! I love home-made!

I jumped over to read "soul food" - you're right - it was great!

Thank you so much Tanna for the sweet words. This was a wonderful way to return home...

Your treasures are just that. There is nothing like gifts that are crafted from the heart and hands of someone gifted! Beautiful.

Blessings, Debbie
