leaped out of the car and hauled the box inside. I began digging through the tons of packing peanuts until I came upon the little pot. Packed to perfection, I unwrapped and unwrapped and unwrapped...there it was...just like I had imagined. Perfectly glazed, perfectly shaped, great heft...absolutely one of the prettiest little pots I've ever seen. Then I spied the card...such an endearing message and what to my wondering eyes appeared?
Another wrapped item....a beautiful matching jar with a leaf impressed on the front. I had loved it, too, but was so taken with the pot that I opted for it instead of the leaf jar...too much for my sensitive old heart. I couldn't believe my good fortune and the kindness that had been bestowed upon me.
Hubster comes in and asks if the box could be taken outside..."Yes, let me grab some of the packing to use for a project..." Just as I grabbed a handful, I noticed a THIRD item! The leaf imprinted vase to match the leaf jar was unearthed....NOW, THIS IS AN EMBARRASSMENT OF RICHES!!!
Here are my new little friends, sitting on my counter waiting to be placed in the perfect place in my office!
I carefully wrapped my new acquisitions to take them to school to show everybody (and Sharon, everybody LOVED them.)
This is my "school showing"...the plate on my desk behind the three matches perfectly.
There is something magical about being creative, but to be creative AND generous?! That's Sharon Ivy...a creative, generous artist and friend. Once again, thank you and I must insist that everyone who reads this post go immediately to her blog to see her beautiful items. Leave her a comment and let her know how much you appreciate her wonderful work!
Wishing you the blessings of friendship,
