What a sweet new friend, Nancy-Jo is! I found this wonderful packet of goodies in my mailbox this afternoon. Be sure and notice the detail of the embroidery on the beautiful, sweet scented sachet, so pretty! There is also a cute spring card with old-fashioned girls and a maypole, a little blue butterfly and a picture she copied from my blog that she made into a little wall hanging! Thank you so much, Nancy Jo! I appreciate and will treasure all of it.

I have met so many wonderful people since January. It seems I've 'known' all of you longer than that as you let me into your own little blog space and share your everyday lives. It is such fun making so many friends.

I love this quote---"A friend is a gift you give yourself." - Robert Louis Stevenson

All of you, my blogging friends, are very special gifts that I treasure everyday! Thank you all for being part of my life.


"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in in." Psalm 118:24


  1. How wonderful to receive such a beautiful gift and with the embroidery so carefully detailed.

    Your photo's are always a delight to see.

    Rosemary, a wise choice of quotations and one in which we all reflect upon our "blogging friends" to whom we return each new day.


  2. I couldn't have said it better myself. It is so wonderful to find a group of blogging friends who share the same interests. I love looking into other people's lives through blogging. Rosemary, you must have been thrilled with your package from Nancy Jo. She is so talented!

  3. I certainly agree, that a friend is a gift you give yourself. Friends are so wonderful and I love all of you. connie from Texas

  6. What precious gifts from a precious friend. We are so fortunate to have met such wonderful blogging buddies aren't we? xoxo

  7. RM,
    So glad you liked your little gifts, love to give things away to nice people.
    Went to the thrift this morning, got a few nice things.
    Warm and windy here today, we did a whole lot of outside work over the weekend. Just love the change of seasons.

  8. oh so sweet! and the quote is one of my favorites. Thanks for considering us friends. I feel the same way!
