Blogging friends are the Best

A quick post today because I want to share the lovely surprise I received just a few minutes ago.  I was chatting on the phone when the UPS man rang my bell.  


I saw the return address and smiled........

Inside were six lovely tassel napkin rings from Alma, The Tablescaper!  




Perfect for my Thanksgiving table


Alma had asked a question in one of her posts, asking who would be hosting the dinner in their home this year.  I wrote back that I would be, just a small group of six.


Thanks so much, Alma.  It is raining hard, had to cancel plans for today, and your thoughtful package brightened the day for me.

I am thankful for the wonderful things I am experiencing, and the great people I am meeting, since I started a blog.  (And the sweet gifts!)

xo

(P. S.  I should have my SBC post out in a day or two!)

  7. What a thoughtful surprise!! I think the blogging community has to be some of the most thoughtful people I have ever met. I was in awe when Brenda fell that so many of you were so kind and made her days so much brighter. I thank you all for that.

    I think I'm into a bunch of really wonderful people!!

    I agree with you. The old witches must have a ton of Botox. Their faces just don't move at all. Ha ha!
