Yesterday I came home from work to find a small package in the mail addressed to me. It seems so rare these days to get an unexpected package in the mail! The return address was that of my friend LeeAnn a.k.a. Annie in New York. Since I know that LeeAnn is a super talented artist, I knew there had to be something fab in that little box!
And look, there was!
But better than the earrings was the lovely card that accompanied them. The artwork on the front is by Annie herself by the way, but what meant the most to me were the words inside. She sent the earrings just to let me know how much she enjoys my blog!
How fab is that?
It was funny timing, because I had just been thinking that perhaps my blog had gotten a little stale. Yet another painted dresser, ho hum, yawn. Don’t I have anything interesting to say? Isn’t my life more exciting than this? Does anyone really care what color I decide to use on a desk or how many vintage alarm clocks I have? Sometimes I wonder.
But, now I am reminded that someone other than me gets some enjoyment out of this thing.
And so, I want to pay it forward. Would you enjoy receiving a small box in the mail with a treasure inside? How about these earrings I made using vintage religious medals?
And also these cute Scottie dog hair pins made out of vintage buttons?
Don’t know how to leave a comment? It’s easy! Just click on the little dialogue balloon that is to the right of the title of the post, “paying it forward giveaway.”
I will pick a random winner using the very scientific ‘names in a hat’ approach on Friday. Good luck!
