Special Gifts from a Special Friend

A few years ago, I was on the Rate My Space site and met some really talented people.  Heather, who was one of the most talented ladies on there, happened to live a couple of hours from me.  After getting to know each other through our garden postings, she invited me to an antique show in her area.  Another friend and I headed the 100 miles to meet her in person and shop, shop, shop.  We had a great time!  Soon after that, my husband took a job 800 miles away, so we moved.  Well, luckily, our son decided to go to college in the same town she lives in!  Now every time we visit our son, I get to spend time with Heather!  Her home and garden are absolutely gorgeous and she knows the best shopping places in the area. Colby Cottage and Treaures from the Heart Blog are two favorites that she's introduced me to.

Today I received a box full of gifts for my birthday from Heather.  Oh, she knows me so well!!

A nest and eggs. I love the materials underneath it.

 I think it looks great on this old scale.  Now if I can keep the cat from playing with the eggs...

I love this old fan!

 She sent this mini cake plate.  I like how it holds another nest perfectly.

 This ruffled terra cotta pot is so cute!

This is one of the gifts she sent me for Christmas.  Perfect!

We laugh that we started out as friends who met on the internet!  She is one of the nicest, most generous people I've ever met.  Thank goodness for the internet.  :)

Thank you for your visit.
