VINTAGE LINENS FROM CANADA!

Show and Tell
I'm excited to participate in "Show & Tell" today. It has been way too long since doing so. KELLI'S HOUSE is so gracious in hosting this weekly event! Thanks Kelli.

****************************************************************

A package arrived at my home about a month ago, all the way from Canada! Inside were some very pretty linens: a vintage pillow case, a doily, and a very feminine hanky; oh and of course, the sweetest hand written message in a floral card. You might ask who sent me the lovelies. They were from CANDY, one of the best bloggity friends I've met in this adventure of blogging! I was excited to tear into that box to see just what it was Candy had sent me. I knew from visiting her blog and learning of her taste, that I'd love whatever she had sent.
Thank you Candy for all your sweetness over the past couple of years. It's obvious to me that you are a giver and encourager. May God bless you and your sweet family!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Pam, they are just beautiful. I have also been the on the recieving end of Candy giving ways. She is a treasure of a friend. Each time I see the things she has so sweetly given me, I think of her and pray for the blessing to be returned to her many times over.

You are a very good friend also. One that I feel like I know quiet well even though I know that I don't. Have a great day. connie from Texas
