what an amazing world that we live in. with all the *hype* about the world or better yet life as we know it,,, "oh,, what is this world coming to??" "oh man, things just aint what they used to be,,,". i beg to differ. i have two strong points that i hope impress you as much as they have impressed me. they have made my heart sing.
first} donna. amazing. lovely. talented. spiritual. kind. generous. beautiful.
i was at my ten year reunion in september and a really good friend of mine from high school {second picture down} had an amazing, i mean amazing necklace on {second photo down}. she went on to tell me that a friend of hers makes jewelry from thrifts store parts. anything. treasures. she uses a torch to heat the pieces all together so you know youve got quality in your favor. anyway, trying not to make this a *long* story. as soon as i was close to a computer i found her etsy shop and fell in love!! i got myself this necklace. i had too. how could i resist?? it had a little boy and a little girl. *mothers love*. the relationship with donna was easy to develop. talk about personal customer service. she wanted to make sure everything was just as i dreamt of. and it was. for christmas she sent me a little gift. i love it. i wanted to return the favor of her generosity so i sent her a scrapbook kit and that leads us to this. amazing. donna, i am so happy to have met you, you are made up of what every person wishes they were. i am truly grateful to have a piece of your jewelry and am honored to have my name on your blog. thank you. xo.
second} robin. you might remember her name because sofia picked it when i did a giveaway last month. simply amazing person as well. so excited by the random act of kindness she wanted to return the favor. kinda *pay it forward*. what a great concept. yesterday in my mail box was this amazing necklace that she created just for me. so sweet. i love it. enclosed was a beautiful thank you card that made my heart smile. robin, thank you so very much. i am so happy to know you. xo
now, tell me that this world "aint what it used to be",,,, again, i beg to differ. two beautiful people that have made my 2009 already an amazing one. thanks ladies.
