Christmas Part Two....the friendship......

from over the pond and far away came this parcel. I have an incredibly talented and overwhelmingly generous friend in Italy....many of you know her too...."Monica".  Of course, the tears came as soon as I tore the paper off......
It was exciting to get sneak peeks of the goodies to come......
Her stars!!!!! I had just bought the new issue of Somerset Life.....and here they were, stars for me!!!
Monica has been published lots and lots and all of her ideas and art works are very dear to me.
She has two blogs,  Life is a Painting,and The White Bench, if you have never visited her, you must do so at once.
She is still waiting for my parcel to arrive but she let me share all this gorgeousness with you!
 
Look at the gorgeous cone, and the cloth wrapping bags......she is so clever, oh look at the card, made from sheet music, love, love.......

These are the acorn hats that were inside the cone, wonderful little hats for my bears and dolls.....
Another beautiful cloth wrapped bag.....and this gift made me feel soooo loved, her plaid bear pin keep!!! I have always wanted this one, thank you my dear friend!
Star perfection!
The most divine antique linen, with my initials no less, be still my beating heart!
There's more, can you believe it?
An original painting.......my cup runneth over...... "Faith" Monica, I truly am so blessed, your gifts are so thoughtful and caring and you are sooooooo sweet and kind....oh my, I hope you know how much this all means to me........thank you.......xxxxxx


 We have had a wonderful Christmas here and I have been so blessed from all my friends......it makes the terrible past year seem like it never happened, I don't mean all the gifts but the friendship and the kindness and the Faith that came my way.....to believe in myself and trust others and to reach for help and know that people don't offer if they don't mean it......most of all to pass it along as I heal and grow in spirit and health........
 Hugs,
Mags
