LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Random Acts of Kindness

In my eBay group, Pretty Romantic Homes we had a Pumpkin Swap, and this is what my dear friend Katie sent me !! A sweet aqua Punkin' with a pink rose hat, and filled with Vintage glass buttons. How sweet is this ? Katie is amazing, she paints beautifully, can out cook and craft anyone I know, grows her own veggies, takes care of a farm , husband and a few well loved goats. And manages to do the bulk of this before noon. She also makes the most beautiful quilts I have ever seen. Thank You Katie, I love Wilson, My Punkin' !!!

Last week was filled with Random Acts of Kindness. I am truly Blessed. My sweet new friend Angelina sent me
some Pink Christmas Cards, and tags. Boy, was I surprised. They came in these pretty sheer organdy bags. And , Oh My Gosh, check out the Rhinestone brads !!!! Oh what luxary, I felt so spoiled !! Pretty Pinkness!! What a sweetheart Angelina !! I love them and will cherish them. After I was done oohing and aweing, I noticed this teeny tiny button in the bottom of the box. A thanks for swapping button. Ok, How sweet is that ?????


Well, all of that kindness, had me so speechless, and then Mr. Mailman came to my door again, this time with a package from Beth, my favorite paper artist and friend. She sent me all of this vintage wallpaper, and old papers. Oh, I just love it, and we have nothing like this here in Las Vegas. Vintage in this town is the 70's, so you can imagine my delight to receive this treasure.thank you so much Beth, your heart is as big as your talent !!!


And Finally, My Dear Friend Connie, and leader of our group. This Sweet lady made me an auction template, just cause. A pretty aqua and pink roses confection in which to display my wares. Thank You Connie !! Thank you for being such a great friend, have I told you lately that I love you ? I have been so sick this week. And am getting some tests run in a few weeks when our new insurance kicks in. I know I am getting repetitive, and I hope I am not bragging , but I am so Blessed, so showered with love, and so very grateful, you have no idea. So, when the urge hits you to do something nice for someone, just do it, you never know what kind of road they are walking on, and kindness DOES matter !!

You have the most amazing blog, chock full of delightful creations.

Those birdhouses in your banner and all the wonderful little handmade decorations are truly wonderful. The Nice Matters award is totally deserved. Hope you over come the recent setbacks and power on to more beautiful creating.
