I'm so grateful for the people I have in my life. They are sweet and thoughtful.
And on top of that, they know exactly what I like.
Both of these gems were recently given to me by two wonderful people. Aren't they great? Both of them are hanging above my crafting desk now.
I found the vintage cross-stitch piece on the desk, waiting for me when I arrived at work one night. My co-worker Liz left it for me, she's the nicest lady. Isn't it darling?! Old needlework is one of my favorite things to collect.
The plaque on the right was a gift from my honey. He brought it home for me in an attempt to cheer me up when I was under the weather. Niagara Falls is where I grew up, so I love to collect all the old souvenirs. Ironic how people always do that once they leave somewhere, huh? Guess you don't what you got til it's gone. I was so sick I couldn't do anything but lay on the couch or bundle up under a million blankets in bed...for a solid week. When he gave it to me, I was so out of it that I don't even think I managed a smile. However, I LOVE it. He's such a great guy.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm such a lucky girl!
