~*More Sweet Kindness in the Mail*~

All the way from...
Hello Dear Friends! Today needed a 'cheer~up'... and it came in the mail. Recently I won a giveaway from Cucki... who lives in South Africa. She sent me a package of treasures... so full of thoughtfulness & kindness...

In the package was..

the postcard with beautiful photos that you see at the beginning of this post

a note card and handwritten letter in the most perfect penmanship... giving me congrats for winning

a Guardian Angel key ring

a sweet rooster cross stitch kit

some metallic threads

a pair of swan scissors with a delightful beaded FOB

a package of John James needles

and a new & beautiful tape measure (oh you should see what I WAS using!)

... all sweetly packaged in the cutest gift bags

but that isn't all! Cucki also made & gave me these darling flowers! I have a small handmade basket that I plan to put them in.

Cucki, thank you so much! Your kindness & generosity is just a joy!

I'm always amazed by my online friends & how far away they can be from me. Being from Kansas... I have never been out of the country or even seen the ocean. Maybe someday I will be able to adventure out. Until then... I will enjoy those far away places through you.

Even the postage on Cucki's package brought me smiles...

So, today needed a little 'cheer~up'... nothing terrible was really wrong. I was just a little down... but now I'm smiling again.

Wishing you warm smiles too...
