Friends in Spirit

I think of you all so often.

...the dear people I have met through blogging.
You have all inspired me in so many ways.
If you look in my cupboards or my desk, you would smile
to see some of your inspirations.

{heart-shaped apple tarts, Nordicware, Dutch magazines, goats milk soap, lots of Earl Grey tea}

baking and cooking, photography and homemade cards,
learning how to wrap pretty packages for family and friends,

Thank you for being a friend
        ~ Maria

Oh dear Maria, I so feel the same way. Blogging has brought more friendships, YES, MORE than in the conventional way because WE SHARE SO MUCH MORE, MORE OFTEN than if we did not have a public forum....you are a dear and I wish I could meet you! LOVE TO YOU DEAR SISTER !!!! Anita

The blogging world has truly opened new doors of friendships for me....when I have been hurting, they have been there. When I have small victories, they are there cheering me on. so thankful to have "met" you, Maria!

What adorable shots!

In answer to your question, my dog Oscar is a working golden retriever (they are smaller and darker than normal goldens).

Dear heart,

You are sick? This has been the strangest season! For not being a particularly cold and snowy season here, many of us have continued with this COLD! I am better but my nose is still runny and I get a tickle in my throat too!!! I so hope you are tucked in today with your favorite tea in hand!!! THANK YOU precious heart for coming to comment with such kindness...I can feel it through the screen!!!! HUGS TO YOU, Anita
