Not lost just misplaced......


Main Entry: much·ness
Pronunciation: \ˈməch-nəs\
Function: noun
Date: 14th century

: the quality or state of being great in quantity, extent, or degree

much of a muchness : very much the same




Dear Friends, I have to say that when I came home the other day I never expected to see these wonderful comments and words of comfort. I was in such a funk when I posted about losing my way and not having any "muchness". When I came home the Dutchman told that I had really nice friends on my blog and that I should be happy, they say nice things...(imagine a deep gruff voice, and a blunt, to the point man). Of course he was right!
Then he handed me these parcels, I love it, how it makes a day seem brighter!
Look at this packaging, you don't even want to open it, except when you know that inside are these incredible dolls!!!
I ordered these from Staffordshire Gardens..... beautiful!!! Thank you Shari!!!






Look at my gorgeous new ribbon made by Lillalotta....... Thank you Anna!!


Happiness and joy, feeling better and better, thanking the Lord for all that He has given me....
Thanking you my friends for being there when I needed you.....

So you..the dolls and the ribbon~I have been thinking of you..even started an email:) Then didn't..
I see that today is brighter..Isn't that the truth of the words:"Après La Pluie Le Beau Temps?" Even if short lived for the moment..the beau temps always comes back..

We gardeners have a saying I love..I seem to be full of quotes this morning:)

"Hope never dies in the heart of a gardener"..It reminds me of your friend that wrote "we must learn to dance in the rain"..
I liked that.
It's so true..

I am quite sure we are all sending you virtual maps with yellow brick road directions:)

Have a great day.You inspire many many.. I hope that cheers your spirit too..That's a big thing.You never know who you are making happy in any given day.

Oh Margaret I am so glad you received these wonderful goodies today, they would definitely put a smile on my face! I hope you are feeling better, we all have our days and sometimes they last longer than we want them to but like the wind blows a storm away they too will leave you and you will be lifted toward 'muchness' again. May your 'muchness' be returned to you soon, Theresa

Margaret I was sad to hear that you have been down and out. Life is not always fun or even fair at times. As you said if you just have a positive additude and hope the bad things go away. Sometimes it is very difficult to get out of that funk !!! Good things are coming your way my friend, so just hang on to the things in life that make you happy and safe !!!

Big Hugs,
Bonnie

What beautiful packages to brighten your days! I have those bad days too when my path is just not clear anymore... I think we all do. It is nice to take a moment to get a fresh new perspective on things.

I think some nice warm hot chocolate and a day in bed with my pajama's on is another great way to gain perspective too! lol

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Ooooh Margaret~ You know I've got a "hitch in my get along" these days.
I'm hoping when the sunshine apears more it'll bring the birth of new blooms and floral scents to the air.
It may be the rejuvenating we need.
Receiving special packages are always a welcomed sight. I can't wait to see what you create with your sweet bisque girls.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Oh, YAY!!! You ordered from Lillalotta!!! Don't you just love her work! Your new ribbon is wonderful, my friend. I've had fun using mine on recent projects...and just sold my Alice in Wonderland pillow last night! (woo hoo!) I know you and I will be doing reorders with her, for sure.

Your porcelain dolls are beautiful, too and I can't wait to see what you do with them.

Safe travels, my friend. Can't wait to hear all about the wedding.
Huge Hugs,
Your Florida Friend,
Donna
