Happy Mail!

Having an unexpected package arrive in the mail is a sure fire way to brighten my day. 
Especially when it contains something as pretty as this! 
My dear friend Joyce of Scrap for Joy sent me this wonderful wall pocket. 
She tucked in the beautiful images too! 
My friend Joyce...someone I've never met in person.  Someone I've talked to only once.  Someone I've "known" for 2 1/2 years because she and I have blogs.  Who would have thought a friend, under these circumstances, could mean so much to me.  Joyce you have a special place in my heart and in my prayers! I'm hoping that we'll get to "do lunch" in 2011 ~ what a special blessing that would be!

Now, back to this lovely gift ~ how pretty is this!?   Joyce thought it might look nice in my craft room and that is exactly where I'm going to put it.  I'll scan the cute images and share them with all of you real soon!  


"Friendships multiply joys and divide griefs".....indeed!


This is the card Joyce sent ~ isn't it pretty?  It's a print but it sure doesn't look like one.
I love all the layering.  I'll scan it for you too!


Thank you so much Joyce!
You are a Joy!

Hi Sweetie. Gosh I didn't realize how much I have missed out on reading lately. What a bad buddy I've been! You were on my mind tonight. See my blog so I had to check in real quick before heading to bed. I hope to come back this weekend and read all your news that I've been missing.

I love gift from Joyce. It's just beautiful. She is such a sweetheart and I can think of anyone who deserves it more than you.

BTW, dropping by was a good thing. I'm looking at your beautiful smile and can't help but smile too.

OOOXXX's...Tracy :)

Surprises in the mail are so much fun, aren't they. There is nothing so rewarding as to put a smile of the face of someone you care for and admire! I'm so glad you liked your treat! xoxo

Oh how well I understand your sentiments in this post. I have met so many lovely people through my blog. I even had one lovely lady comp us to a couple days at the resort where she works after reading that we were going to be visiting nearby.

I have been corresponding with one lady I met in a chat room for ten years. I treasure her friendship and hope that some day we will actually met face to face.

Thanks for stopping by my pink Saturday post. Your comment was appreciated.
