Mail Call

Remember when you were a child and you were waiting for the decoder ring that you ordered from the back of the cereal box?  Remember the anticipation and thrill when the package finally came?

Well, this is what I get excited about as an adult and it was thrilling when I found it on my back porch.
This is a sneak preview.  Hopefully, there will be some finished projects in a few days.
Then another package arrived.  Two in one day; I felt like I got the decoder ring and a Crackerjack prize all at once.

Daughter Alert: Blog friends are real.

My daughters tease me sometimes about my "blog friends".  Well, they are real.  This is proof.
My sweet friend Eileen, who blogs at Little House Quilting, sent me this gift in the mail today.  I couldn't believe it.  She is a very talented lady and I love reading her blog.  These are hand knit and for those of you who craft, you will appreciate just how much time went into making these.  She also sent me an applique pattern that I had admired from her blog.    Thank you, Thank you Eileen.  She's been recovering from a surgical ordeal so be sure to send her Good Wishes when you visit. 

I have met such great people through this blog.  Thank you for your comments.  I do feel like I know you.  Maybe someday we'll get to meet in person.  I think blogging is not so much different from Pen Pals from days past (I had those too) and I love hearing from each and every one of you.


  1. Hi Bonnie, that was lovely of your friend, I hope she feels better soon. I agree that bloggy friends are real, I've met some wonderful people. Lots of love xxx

  2. How sweet! Getting packages(especially a surprise), and even a letter, is always fun!
    Bonnie, you are so genuine and I consider you my friend from afar:)

  3. Hmmm, tell your daughters you did NOT send me that picture of the red door across the street from your rock house. And that someday I'll be back there again to prove it LOL! (Oooh, and just thinking about those little ice cream treasures a few blocks from you makes my mouth water!) Very pretty goodies from Little House Quilting!

  4. Yes, blog friends are real!!
    This reminds me of one of my sons who always makes "trip friends". We all tease him about this :)
    I love reading your blog Bonnie. LOVE the bench you recovered. Great fabric choice.
    Still want a tour of your country and city homes.
    ok, new goal for 2012. Have blogging friends over for lunch!
