The Sweetest Thing

Last month, I did a post that included this tea cup. My favorite, but saucerless tea cup.

Then, one day I received an e-mail from a woman I do not know, named Vanessa. She said she had recently purchased a cup and saucer to use for crafting, since the cup was cracked, and asked if I would be interested in it. I was so excited! I asked how much she wanted for it and she said she would rather give it to me.

When I returned home on Saturday, this was waiting for me!

I am constantly amazed by the people in this wonderful land of blog. The comradery, support and generosity that exists here is inspiring, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to meet so many amazing people.

I appreciate your sweet and generous gift Vanessa, and will treasure it. Thank you so much!

I am too! I love it here! It is like what my girlfriends in my town do for each other, but, even more special because you get to meet people from around the world. They are so pretty dear. Blessings.

I have that same pattern! I think it may be plates though..isn't that horrible? I have tons of china and can't exactly remember....;-)

I LOVE your flowers. This is on my list of to-do's. I have the Candace Kling book and several others. Does it count that I've collected the supplies and instructions?
