Sometimes....


Sometimes....

someone just decides to do something nice for you

to bless you

just because



And while some may choose to think 
it's because the recipient is deserving...



in this case,

it's because the giver is completely

wonderful


generous
 

 thoughtful


 and amazing!


Thank you
for sending me EIGHT (!) of these fantastic vintage blue ball jars!

I am constantly 
amazed and humbled 
by the generosity of my blog buddies...
sincerely, y'all are some of the best people 
I've ever  had the pleasure of knowing.


Here's hoping your week is a blessed one, too!

Anne, I think you are a generous one too!! You inspired me to work on my blog look. I'm going to a white background, love how your pictures pop! Thank you. Now I want a different font than the few that Blogger offers! Any suggestions? Thanks Anne. Happy New Year. Love those jars, what are you going to do with them? Hugs, Riki

Ummm, maybe I should point out that I was joking about Anne not being in the least bit deserving - OF COURSE SHE IS THE MOST DESERVING!!

trash talk said...

I truly do thank God for the people He has chosen to send to enrich my life as friends through such a small thing as blogging. It's also a wonder when I see blessings come back ten fold (or in this case 8). May you continue to be so blessed in 2011. Happy New Year.
Debbie
P.S. I hope Mr. T is safely home with you now.

cityfarmer said...

It's called blessed. I haven't been by in a while, I'm horrible I know. Well wishes for the new year.

Chrissy said...

Oh Anne, you are so sweet yourself. I have read your blog from the beginning and you are also so inspiring. I just noticed you have a Nikon camera. I received one for Christmas, so I may be asking for some assistance, if that's okay :)
You are right Mary was definitely generous in sending you those Ball jars. I hope I can form the same kind of friendships, with my blog.
Thanks for sharing.

I couldn't write this comment when I saw you post...I had to wait until I got home and run right to my computer.

There I was...in downtown Chicago in their famous shopping district with my 4 teenage nieces. We pop into the Apple store to look around (I think they were actually just wanting to post on Facebook that they were shopping the Magnificent Mile in Chicago. Ha!) and I decide to pull up my blog and cruise around for a few minutes. I could not believe my eyes when I saw your beauitful post!

You totally surprised me, my friend. I am so lucky to "know" you...sweet works and ever sweeter photos. I truly thank you for being who you are. Warm and so genuine. THANK YOU...for the thank you. Not necessary, but so appreciated. I am just happy the jars have a happy home. ;o)

Happy New Year...may all your dreams take flight in 2011!!

Mary

Urban Farmgirl said...

Ok, so I meant "sweet words". You knew what I meant...haha!

Lucky me, Lucky me. I pulled up your blog where I saw it in the January Issue of "Romantic Homes" magazine. I loved everything about your blog, including the love that you seem to have for the Lord. I have saved you as one of my favorite so I can go back and double check it and have also emailed it to a friend of mine. Thanks for a wonderful blog and the ideas that you have. I do estate sales and need a new camera, but I don't take great pictures. My sister that died a week ago was the picture taker and did my estate sale pictures. Keep up the great work and best of luck to you.
