I'm so grateful to see sunshine on this cold and blustery day. Sunshine always lifts my spirits. And - it may be silly to be grateful for sunflowers, but I am! Having photos of sunny sunflowers helps keep me cheerful on our cold gray winter days.
I'm grateful for the opportunity to "find" treasures that will make someone's day. When I'm "picking" at estate sales or thrift stores, I tend pick out things that I'd buy if I were keeping them for myself. Not sure it's good business sense, but it works for me.
This particular item I thought was so "homely" that he was cute. And so I bought him.
And he was just what someone was looking for! And he makes her happy!
"I was so excited to receive my piggy bank today. He's beautiful
and arrived so quickly and in such good condition all the way from
Washington - hard to believe. It looks brand new and I love it.
My mom died 3 years ago and this was one of the things she bought
me as a child. Just seeing it again (in person) makes me happy thinking
of those good old days.
Thanks so much for the great service and for having it in the first place."
A simple letter of gratitude from a customer brings a smile to my heart.
Last weekend we had an art retreat type gathering at my home; a special group of ladies whom I adore from around the Pacific Northwest. There is something about being with like minded folks and just creating.
This is one of the spreads that is mostly finished...
