A present

Surprise, surprise!

A lovely parcel from Canada arrived, from a dear blogland friend many of you know: sweet Koralee from Bluebird Notes. Two living-magazines, a cute blue and silver notebook and a bluebird card. I was so happy, especially since we both thought, the parcel got lost - it took weeks and weeks to arrive here, but - since the bluebird is a bringer of good news it had to succeed in the end!
Now i'm swooning in beautiful images and decorating ideas and just simply forget about the rain outside.
Thank you Koralee, you made me smile! If you haven't seen her amazing blog you must. It's full of eye candy and good ideas that brighten your day!

  5. Precious Martina, oh your comment made me smile and brought comfort to my aching legs...I haven't worn heels all summer and I wore them today, running around from 6:00am to 6:00pm.....I had a marvelous day, and your thoughts are well received and loved. You are such a kind friend friend, I have to say, you are just a fine human being. Merci mille fois ma belle amie....everything went well, and all I can do is take one day at a time. AND YOUR GIFT IS GORGEOUS! I will be meeting Koralee since she is coming to my city this month for the Creative Connection event! I was hoping to have her at my home for tea, but she may not make it due to a tight schedule. However, I will seek her out at the event and take a picture!!!!!

  11. Good morning sweet friend,

    YES! HIGH HEELS! And yesterday morning, I woke up at 3:00am! Surprisingly, I made it through the day and even came home to play my harp, but after I ate, I CRASHED on the couch! Back at it again this morning; 3:30am......after the initial adrenalin wears off, I hope to get back to my normal 4:00am wake up!!!
