A surprise from a reader

 One of the things that surprises me most is 
when someone reaches out to me just because they enjoy my blog.
I received a gift from Hillary on the west coast~
 She sent me this vintage hand painted brooch.
 It is a piece of artwork.
Much like a large cameo in shape and size.
I happen to love old jewelry, and this brooch is just gorgeous.
Hillary included some other vintage items that she wanted me to have,
just because she loves reading my blog!
So thank you for reminding me that I am not in a bubble Hillary~
it is nice to know you are enjoying reading it as much as I do writing.

  10. My favorite, and least expected, thong about blogging is seeing how many wonderful, good-hearted people there are out there. How very sweet of Hillary!

  11. Sorry Amy, I just wrote "thong" on your blog! How inappropriate! I hate my iPad. Meant "thing" of course

  12. Such a beautiful cameo. It is so you. I've recently received some lovely reminders from blog readers that there are some truly, selfless, grateful, beautiful people in the world. Writing out thank you cards in just a bit. Enjoy your treasure.
