I am shaking my head in wonderment at the kindness, the unexpected kindness of folk I know.
This weekend a parcel came from Australia - the boys were goading me to wrestle it open immediately, but some how I felt sitting down with my morning tea and opening with bit of decorum was more my style. So I did.
And as soon as I saw the hidden treasure - I knew exactly what it was!
Granny Smith's Quilting for my glue gun stand! I love the way it stops the gun from falling over (which mine did constantly!) and comes with it's own 'drip tray'. Happy happy!
On Friday, a friend who has the most wonderful taste in furniture and a beautiful home offered a beautiful duck egg blue Welsh dresser to me. It is one I have often admired and have been known to run my fingers along it when I walk by! I would have taken it there and then, but drew a sensible breath and took out a tape measure. With a bit of sorting out in the kitchen ... it will fit! (I have never broadcast my dislike of my kitchen but it is something I 'live with' rather than love, this dresser will change the whole room - I can't wait!)
I am humbled by both gifts of kindness, thank you xx
Before I go - a quick update on my crochet snuggle rug -
It keeps on groWING and I love it ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
So, back to painting, enough blogging now.
Oh, talking of which (painting not blogging) - Inspired by my wonderful glue gun gift, I had a bit of a tidy up in my craft cupboard (affectionately known as 'Jonathon Joe') and I came across a couple of cushion covers I'd painted years ago when Eldest was a very small person and we were still living in Africa .... I'd forgotten all about them.
They were both well used and have the stains to prove it!
They both hark back to a different life.
What wonderfully unexpected goodness has happened to you recently?
What lovely moments of kindness have you received?
Go on share, it is lovely to hear what you have been up to :)
Now, I really must go - it has been lovely chatting :)
Have a lovely and Happy Monday!
