This photo shows an up close of the "Kindred Spirit Silkie" of Anne of Green Gable and Diana walking across a field of wildflowers. I sent this card to Heather at Christmastime and she made it into a silkie for this tote. Wasn't this such a lovely idea? The silkie is embellished with pink french knots for wee flowers along with flowing pink ribbon attached with two wee pink rosettes in the corners. Also Heather hand dyed the pink lace that is covering the sky area. There is lots of beads and vintage buttons and "One Heart" with another wee flower in the center. Truly lovely. The other side of the tote is just as pretty as the other. Another bigger "Pink Heart" with a rose. This one has a pocket to store things in. Up at the top is a chain to attach my keys to soooo I do not lose them while I am shopping away to fill up my new "Pink Frou Frou Rose Tote!! LOL The inside also has lovely swirling pink fabric with two very large pockets. I can seeing me filling this tote up to the brim while shopping at Paducah in April. LOL Isn't the ruffled pink edge around the top so feminine and pretty. I just love all the beautiful rose and coordinating fabrics. They all look so wonderful together.
This photo shows an up close of the lovely rose lace used on both sides and the ruffled insert is also very pretty. Sooo many wonderful touches to this "Pink Rose Frou Frou Tote.
I also received a lovely card that says, "Thinking Of You".. with flowering Magnolia Tree in full bloom with Black-Capped Chickadee on it branches. I am sure they are singing Happy Birthday to me. VBG
On the back of this Canadian Wildlife Fund card it says, "Friends are Flowers in the Garden Of Life! Now this sounds like a familiar saying. vbg The chickadees and this saying is perforated and tears off to be a bookmark. How great is this?
And then there was more. Heather mention some time ago about making a wild rice dish for her sweetie. My sweetie also loves eating rice so I asked for the recipe. I did not find any wild rice so Heather sent some Wild Rice and the recipe too. I also received a magnet that says, "Gardening Forever, housework whenever!! LOL Yup, I can relate allot to this.
I also received a very lovely delicate carved wood "Eden Angel" prayer. It says, "Prayer must be spoken from the heart, in selflessness and humility, knowing that it will be answered in ways we may not see, in time we may not recognize".
I truly feel, our unusual meeting was meant to be. Heather's friendship has warm my heart and brightens my everyday. Thank you Heather for your very generous gift and kindness. I will treasure them forever.
