a friend in need is a friend in deed...

autumn is upon us, the leaves are dropping fast on the maples and pumpkins abound the neighborhood...(gosh that sounds very poetic)...
my mailbox over the past few weeks has been heaving with goodies (slightly exaggerated but it sounds so exciting)...there is nothing better then going to collect the mail and finding something unexpected amongst all the dreary stuff. i bring it in and then our #3 and #4 always start asking "is is for me? who's it addressed to" and i have great pleasure in saying "nope, it's for me"...so i thought dear readers, this week would be a great week to share a few of the treats that have come my way. ("why's it a good week Tif ") well since you ask, i will admit that i am coming down with the dreaded condition that bloggers near and far fear...i have "bloggers block"...i hope it is just a small dose and that i will be up and raring to go before long, but in the meantime i am going to concentrate on some of the lovely people out in cyber world that have come into my little world through my blog...

it is the one thing that constantly amazes since i started my little blog earlier in the year, i really had no idea that just penning a few words each day would lead me to so many wonderful caring people...i liken my cyber friendships to old fashioned pen pals...people that you probably will never meet, but you connect over common interests and before you know it they become a part of your life...i find myself thinking of my 'invisible friends' all the time, i might see something and think "oooh, so and so would just love that" or "what a hoot (do i really think 'hoot') i know the very person who would be laughing at that with me"...it truly is one of the best things in my life...


so the first of my parcels to kick start our week is from the lovely gigibird...

i like Lynn a whole lot, she is not a stranger to many of you i am quite sure...the first think i liked about Lynn was her wise straight talking ways and the damn fine cupcakes she whips up at the drop of a hat. with her 'partner in crime' Stella, she becomes Florence Hope...and together they craft the most beautiful creations which you can find here


the parcel contained a beautiful vintage nightie (sadly photographing the color blue is not my forte, the nightie is more aqua than blue)...it fitted me just perfectly. she also very considerately sent me some pretty dusters to make light work of my cleaning (which is all i seem to do these days). what a thoughtful friend...now to spare anymore blushes i shall just say, "thank you gigibird"...you made my day with your kindness


only four more rows left of her blanket ~ Tif

Hooray - there is another small parcel making it's way to you across the sea as we speak. Thank you so much for loving Ruby as much as me! I know just what you mean about blog friends - I have only just come into this world and it is like a lovely tea party where everyone likes what you like, I love it x

ahhh, lovely gigibird. what a perfect slip for you. i feel just the same about my invisible friends, it's an odd thing but then odd in it's not-oddness too (if you see what i mean!) and i think your blog in particular invites that kind of empathy, it's so warm and open.
