Gratitude, Part One...

I have some long overdue thanks to give
to a wonderful group of ladies,
generous gals who have blessed me beyond measure in recent days.
I've been the recipient of some amazing bloggy love,
and it's my privilege to now share
their generosity with all of you.

From the beautiful Tracey at French Larkspur
I discovered a little something extra tucked in when I received my issue
of Jeanne d'Arc Living last month...

{over-the-top incredible presentation as always, Tracey!}

You see the smaller package on the right?
Know what was inside?

Look what Tracey tucked in as an amazingly thoughtful housewarming gift...

What a fabulous little book this is! I've worn it out from thumbing it so much.
Thank you, thoughtful, dear Tracey!

But lest you think she's the only generous blogger out there, think again.

One of the sweetest gals ever, Shelly of Bungalow Bling,
mailed me awhile back to say that she had
thought of me right away when she came upon a completely darling vintage cocktail dress.

So whaddaya think Shell did???
That's right, she sent  it to me!

It's *perfection* Shell, I adore it and all the other
incredible goodies you tucked inside, gracias!

But the love doesn't stop here, no ma'am...

My lovely friend Melanie of Pretties and Posies not only sent me these
wonderful tulip bulbs...

But she also made a donation to the American Cancer Society in my name!
Darling Melanie honored several of her friends with this incredible gesture, 
and I really cannot think of a better gift. Thank you, Mel!

So do I have some fabulous friends or what ???

I still have a whole 'nother post coming up filled with even more  riches 
I've received from blog buddies in recent days, and I can't wait to share it all with you!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
