sisters sharing across the seas
first off, thank you soooo much for all your sweet loving words about abby.
i feel really at peace about her death and i really do appreciate having this forum for writing it all down.
i admit it: i'm head over heels for her wonderful hats...she is a knitter extraordinaire.
you might remember the one she sent before, so gorgeously soft and chunky and promptly swept away by darin?
well guess who was the first to plop this new beauty on his head?! again, i have to admit it: the man looks dang good in a beanie. i am sorry i don't have a visual presentation for that fact.
here's me instead, feeling cute and sassy.
in fact, sara sent piles of pretty things to make me feel cute and sassy!
i felt like a princess getting treated to such joys.
you can see a sneak peek of the crowning glory: a beautiful new Gunne!!! looks like maybe i shouldn't have bought myself that other one after all (hell, you can never have too many :D ) i'll show you where i wore it tomorrow.
as always bobe had to help with the unwrapping...
inside was a very cool book, feathers from the rooster Matt Hooper, who escaped a fox!, dried lavender, little notes, prettiness abounding.
this is one talented girl with an artist's soul...check out the amazing drawing on the box.
the little rose colored skirt she sent me ties up in the back like a tiny corset. flirty and flouncy, just how i like em.
and a beautiful sprial pendant encasing a piece of rose quartz, which happens to be one of my favorite stones.
i wore this the day abby died. i felt wrapped in love, and so grateful to incredible sharing women who send gifts through the post. one of life's true delights!
sara, thank you thank you thank you for your fresh and wondrous sweetness; you are a treasure.
