Lovely Gifts from a Lovely Friend
Do you know my friend Jules? If you do, then you know what a sweet, generous person she is. We recently agreed to have a swap, and just look at the wonderful treasures she sent to me!
Jules is a very talented artist who paints, stitches, and crafts in a variety of different mediums. She sent me that gorgeous piece of hand-dyed silk in the photo as well as the hand-crafted paper clay necklace and she even made the little box it came in!
She made the wonderful little bookmark too - all hand stitched. I love the little quote. And she also sent me the wonderful silk threads and collection of beads. Notice that it is all color coordinated! I was tickled to death to receive this wonderful collection of gorgeous goodies from my sweet friend. Jules and I met through blogging, and quickly discovered that we share a love of art, nature, poetry, literature, and even mushrooms!!
I am so thankful for all of the friends I have made through blogging. I have met so many wonderful and talented people, and as you can see, also a lot of very generous and loving spirits. I feel so blessed to have friends like Jules to share my interests with.
Jules has a wonderful blog called Adventures in Thread where she shares her beautiful handmade dolls (they're to die for!) her embroideries, nature photos, and sometimes even tours of some of the beautiful homes and gardens of her native England. She's a sweet, talented lady with a beautiful blog full of lovely things to share. I'm sure she would love for you to come and visit her sometime.
And thank you for visiting me here! I've got lots of projects to share with you soon - sewing, gardening, stitching and more!
