A Simple Thank You Is Never Enough!

I believe things happen for a reason
My life has been a bit stressful lately and I can tell I've been more absent from my blog.  I'm feeling a lot better and some of that is because of you my blog friends! Your kind words and encouragement mean so much! 
Why some of you have even sent me little surprises!
This box of sweet goodies arrived from 
Susan told me that God puts it on her heart to send someone a package of 'love' and she does! 
Pillows, Flamingo things and...
Pink Piggy Bank...the leg is broken but is an easy fix....
Thank you Susan for your kindness!

These adorable items were in a box that was sent to me by 
Sarah made a comment about a mug I showed on my blog and I offered to send it to her...she only accepted if she could send me something in exchange...
Sarah lives in Texas and sent me these sweet things
 for my red, white & blue cubbies
These Eiffel Tower Salt & Pepper shakers brought tears to my eyes! 
 What a thoughtful gift! 
Sarah is one of my friends who has been to Paris and is giving me ideas for my trip! Again my thanks to sweet Sarah!

I also was so blessed to win a giveaway from
Take Six last month
This gorgeous beach glass necklace made by 
A day at the Beach in Canada!
I love it!  

Now for the last thing on this Sunday
Here are the items I got for Sandie on the
World's Longest Yard Sale
A fun cookbook for a Busy Woman 
A sweet Angel box and a February Birthday girl
This Atlas glass jar was her one request and I also found this sweet little corning dish in the Country Festival pattern!  So Sandie these will be coming to you soon! 

I'm joining

Linda when I lived in Kentucky I use to go to the Worlds Longest Yard Sale. If I am thinking of the right thing. It was up and down Highway 27.
I miss that so much!

Sarah said...

LInda, blogging friends are the best part of being a part of Blogland. Glad the box of surprises cheered you up. It's fun shopping for you! ~ Sarah


Isn't it great to know there are people in the world who get such great joy helping others? I love it!
