something that brightened my day...

instagram has been a wonderful experience for me...
 
it's so easy to make connections, to see and share glimpses of daily life on ig... i can't even believe the community of online friends that i've made through this social media app...
 
i met helen from the uk when i hosted my first giveaway... she won a pocketful of posies garland...
 
in the fall she sent a bundle of beautiful felted acorns my way... they were perfect!
 
in january, we decided to do a swap for valentine's day... i was excited about it... i sent her a handful of hearts garland and she sent me felted hearts that she had made...
 
her package arrived on my doorstep and totally brightened my day... she addressed the envelope adorably... and tucked inside were felted hearts for me... treats for maizie and marina... and a special package for mr. milo {soft toys shaped like sardines, stuffed with catnip... he hasn't slowed down long enough for me to take his pic with one!}
ahh... the polka dots!
and the little hearts within the hearts...
her felt work is amazing...
i need to find a larger milk glass bowl to tuck them in...
 
knowing the amount of time and thoughtfulness that she put into that package filled me with joy...
 
helen, if you're reading... i absolutely love it all, friend... thank you for sharing your talents with me!

Ah my lovely friend, what a kind post. I am so glad that you like my felted hearts, they were definitely gifted with love. I adore my Heart garland, it makes me smile every time I go to take a plate off my bookcase. I love this world of IG ladies with all their crazy amazing craft skills and kind hearts. So glad to have found you. x
