Special Delivery

If you've ever known the surprise of  
finding a special package on your doorstep, then
you'll know exactly how I felt when I recently
discovered a canvas tote bag stuffed
full of these lovely antique gems.

Only a very dear friend would leave such a gift,
would so freely hand down treasures
from her own collection, would know that these 
speak volumes to me.

My imagination is flooded with possibilities.
My heart is warmed at her generosity, care 
and thoughtfulness.
Thank you, my Very Dear Friend.


  1. So wonderful to be gifted by someone who understands how you appreciate the beauty in what others may see as old or useless. What a treat!

  2. Oh, Tierney - how beautiful. I know that they have found a wonderful home with you and I can't wait to see what they become.
