~A Birthday Gift To Treasure~

Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well. We enjoyed our second snow day at home today. The kids had a good time just hanging out and I had a chance to get caught up on laundry and housework. The last couple of days have been nasty with snow, wind and ice. But today the sun came out and there was a little bit of melting going on. Still icy though, so we are taking it slow.

A big box arrived at my door yesterday and I wanted to share what was in it with you. My sweet friend Wanda sent me a birthday gift. I couldn’t wait to open it up and see what it was!

When I got it open a gorgeous brown crock bowl was inside! I couldn’t believe it! The most beautiful dark chocolate brown bowl!  I filled it with some angel vine and a few favorite hearts and proudly set it on my kitchen table for a little photo shoot. Only fitting that I fill it full of hearts, because I LOVE it~~~

Isn’t it just amazing!? It is from her own collection, it means the world that she shared such a special piece of her collection with me. It has a sweet history and a charming story to go along with it. And now it has a very special place in my home and in my heart. I will always take care of it and treasure it~~~

Wanda and I have never met. But she is a very dear friend of mine. I am so blessed to know her. Thank you Wanda for brightening my day and my life and for making my 40th Birthday that much more special!
