I’m so glad it’s Friday. It’s not that it’s been a bad week but it brings me closer to the weekend and closer to being able to see my brother again in the hospital.
I bought these tulips for myself at the grocery store today and took photos of them in the dining room window after the sun had gone down tonight. I liked the light.
I have them in my new vase. I went into a florist shop in town about 3 weeks ago to buy flowers for my co-worker, Bonnie. There was this beautiful little green vase with white flowers and birds on it in the florists window and I decided to buy it when I saw the price. And then I went back and bought the other 2 vases that were in the shop, keeping one for myself and giving the other as a gift.
And speaking of gifts . . .
Back in the days when I began blogging and publishing my photos, I thought that maybe some day I could sell them.
But I was pretty sure they weren’t good enough. So instead, I began giving them away. About once a month, I’d give a print or two to one of my readers . . . if they seemed like they were having a bad day, or said something exceptionally kind, or well, just because.
I still do this, but not as often as I used to. (I have giveaways now instead). But the other week, I asked a reader for her address after a comment she’d written touched my heart. She’s been a regular visitor to this blog for quite some time now.
You can read about it [here] on her blog.
When I asked for her address, she asked me for mine which sort of threw me for a loop. (I don’t give gifts to get gifts). And yesterday at school, a little box came for me, and in it was this little handmade heart from Donna at Brynwood Needleworks.
To see much better photos of it, please visit [here].
The little ribbons are the color of lilacs and the little tiny beads all over it are as well. What a sweet thing to do. Thank you so much, Donna.
And with that, I bid you farewell. Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
