Growth and RAK gifts..

Our seeds are sprouting! In front you can see the start of mammoth sunflowers and behind, the red wispy sprouts are radishes.. We also planted pilgrim tomatoes and pumpkins. None of those seeds have germinated, perhaps they are too old. Isn't the red of the radish stems fantastic? Speaking of fantastic, I received the most fabulous gift in the mail on Tuesday!!

The above creamer was a gift from Mary at the Little Red House. You have no idea how excited I was.. I was tearing at the tape that held the box closed in the van.. my son kept asking questions (One, because mom was VERY excited about something and, two, he was very curious about this 'stranger' who sending gifts) It made my day, week, month!! I finally go the box open (note to self.. keep scissors in the glove box) to discover that the package was wrapped with more tape and bubble wrap! Aaahh! The anticipation nearly killed me! I wanted to take some pics, honest. To show you the process one takes when opening gifts from internet friends. Nope, couldn't do it! I ripped into that sucker like I was child in a candy store! It is lovely! A beautiful pitcher with.. cherries!! Just perfect for my kitchen! Thank you, Mary! It was a thoughtful and wonderful surprise that just took my breathe away..

So, I was RAK attacked.. (hit with a random act of kindness). I think it is time to pass along the love!

That's absolutely beautiful. And yes, random acts of kindness really lift our spirits and make our day.

Mary is a jewel, and so are you!

Such a thoughtful gift from Mary; she's like that...yes, she is! (I'm stealing from 40 year old commercials, don't mind me.) I can't think of anyone who deserves a bit of sunshine any more than you, Abbie!

Oh my, that's the sweetest thing!

I love to send my blog friends little treasures I find. Sometimes you find something in the thrift that just speaks to you, and you know someone who would love to have it.

Everyone loves getting happy mail!

I'm so glad you like it. Your beautiful pictures make it look so much more fabulous than it looked when I saw it in the thrift store. It was clearly made for your kitchen. Enjoy!

What a special treat! Hope you made yourself some hot tea, used the creamer and sat a spell....maybe finding some balance?
