Blessings Friday: Gifts of the Heart
Pat of Mille Fiori Favoriti honored me with this adorable award. She graciously gave it without any strings attached. As such, I accept the award in the spirit in which it was given, an honest gift of the heart—that is what gives the award value and merit. Thank you, dear Pat, I am humbled.
Yesterday’s mail brought this package from Nicolette of Devliegendekoe. There are balls of pretty yarns, lovely fabric, a box of pins, candy (oh, yum!), and a new book, New Noel: 22 Fun Designs to Deck the Halls—lots of fun ahead for me Thank you for this wonderful treat, Nicolette.

This is Nungeena with a Lyrebird (Menura novaehollandiae). It’s a gorgeous magnet created by my dear friend Kristie of Goddessink, skillfully crafted from clay and embellished with little jewels. Thank you, Kristie; Nungeena is beautiful.
Nungeena’s story is explained in this note illustrated with the lyrebird from the legend. You can find Kristie’s art pieces at her Etsy store.
This cute Jane Austen pin accompanied Nungeena. I love Jane Austen—Kristie knows me very well.
Kristie emailed the following video to me and wrote, “True love knows no limits.” She is so right. I want to share this gift of the heart with you.
