I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends…

Simply put, this post is just one, big 
I mean it when I say that you are all such blessings to me
whether you read every word that I write
or occasionally stop by,
whether you take a moment to write something sweet…or not.
{And, if you’ve stuck around despite several attempts to let go of lavender accents
and move on in the color spectrum, only to chicken out and revert back…
a hug and a thank you!}
Every once in a while,
I’ll get some mail from one of you
that, in addition to the above,
reminds me that you’ve got my back.
{And I have yours.}
I wanted to share the packages that came recently…
said she was going to send me some vintage laces
to use for my lavender dipped letters.
Well, in addition to some beautiful laces,
she surprised me with two LAVENDER striped grain sack pillows.
{Does she know me or what?}
  Lavender and gray striped sacks are so hard to find
(and I know because I’ve been looking for months)
and I did the hop, hop, giggle when I opened them.
Beth even makes her own little clay tags…
Beth is such a positive, high-energy spirit and I’m lucky to call her my friend.
If you haven’t already, I hope you visit her blog and shop
(where she sells those awesome pillows).
Reni at Bliss and Tell recently joined as a sponsor
and sent along some very cute, personalized note cards.
{I’m going to need them to write some thank you notes!}
I love the sparkle!
Reni and I are working on some exciting new projects together 
and I can’t wait to share them with you.
She’s so creative!
Rae at 723 Plain & Simple is just a wonderful, old soul
and sent me one of her new, hand dyed wool necklaces.
I love it.
Isn’t the little leaf detail so pretty too?


Rae also sent me (and Edyn) some hair clips, snaps, and a ring.
 I’ve loved and worn that ring so much that I just ordered 5 more from her.
{You know. The ring that I apparently photographed backward. Genius.}
The blessings didn’t stop there.
Yesterday, a h.e.a.v.e.n.l.y. scented package filled to the brim 
with vintage laces, trim, hand stamped ribbon, and a lavender sachet arrived,
given to me by one of my darling blog readers, Vickie.
{Look at all that laundry.}

My handmade wares are going to love Vickie.

Beth, Rae, Reni, and Vickie,
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
And, Thank you all.
Welcome, new sweets!
I’ve been busy working on some home projects this week
and will share photos with you as soon as I clean up the mess!
