A beautiful gift

I've 'met' a lot of people through social media, many are just 'friends in my phone' but a few have become 'proper' friends. Doni Hall is one of those. I only 'met' her (she lives in Tennessee) last July through the 'Where Bloggers Create' blog hop hosted by Karen Valentine on her blog, My Desert Cottage. You can see Doni's post  here.

Anyway to cut a long story short, I sent her a little package and she sent me one in return. This is what was in it:

She made me a lace book (you can see her making these on her Youtube channel).

I'll be keeping it on my bedside table so I can see it everyday.

She also gifted me some gorgeous items from her lace collection.

These have been placed in my vintage chocolate box with the other laces that are for special pieces of work only.

She also sent me my very own Foxy Fix traveller's notebook.

Along with the couple of notebooks that she recovered, Doni also included one each of her homemade dashboards, a pocket folder and a Petals and Bloom (the name of rhe paper range she used) multi-page pocket folder (there's a tutorial on how she make these on her Youtube channel too).

Wasn't I a lucky girl?

I'll be back again on Sunday.



  1. How absolutely beautiful!!! That is a lovely gift. So nice that with our blogs and Social Media that we can meet and share with people from all over the world.

    1. I know, it's one of the best things about social media.

  2. I'm so glad you liked it! But the best part was making a new friend!
