Colorful flowers make me happy :-).
When I received this pretty package wrapped in colorful flowers, I was very, very happy!
I guess it's no secret that I have a soft spot for birds.
When I opened the card that accompanied this pretty package, this is what I saw. A little girl hugging an adorable bluebird. Oh my goodness, I want to be her. :-)
Inside the card was a sweet note from Carrie at Cottage Cozy. She said she wanted to surprise me with a gift that she had made for me. If you have visited Carrie, you will know that she is a very talented craft artist. She recently moved to a new home and gave a tour. After seeing her craft room, I knew I was in for an exciting surprise.
In addition to my love of birds, you may have noticed a little blue & yellow love taking place around here :-). When I
tore into gently opened the package, my heart skipped a beat when I saw this little birdie.
And when I spied this little blue mug, I was over the moon. That swirl of whipped cream on top reminds me of my favorite summer coffee indulgence ~ Starbucks Java Chip Frappuccino.
Flowers embellished with buttons & pearls ~ swoon, swoon...
All add up to a very sweet surprise from a very sweet blog friend.
I am constantly amazed at the vast array of talent out there in blog land. The extent of my craft supplies could be found inside a shoebox. In other words, I wasn't at the front of the line when they were passing out the craft genes. So, to be the recipient of such a beautiful, handmade gift makes me very happy.
I'm off to find the perfect spot to display this treasure.
Hope your weekend is colorful & happy.
