Look What I Got!

I am not feeling better, quite a bit worse actually. My throat and chest are so sore today that (this might gross you out) I have often spit out my spit instead of swallowing it. I know. Sorry. Since I've had strep twice a year, every year, since I was 13, I'm sadly used to that.

But we're not discussing that today. But one more thing. I had five wonderful comments from the nicest friends and family last night after my post. I feel blessed to have such thoughtful readers.

But, I am here to thank Kelli for her sweet gift. I stumbled across her blog like I do so many others. Clicking on a link from a site, clicking on another link, and so on. I'm sure we all do it. But boy am I glad I kept clicking that day! Her Cupcake Liner Wreath had me drooling. But I couldn't find out how she'd made the flowers. She said she'd found it online but after searching I didn't find anything that looked as cute as hers. So I made a comment and asked her where she'd found it. She did a blog post about it instead! Aren't these adorable? Sadly I've been too sick to craft. Now that's sick.

I was so honored that she took the time to do a post just off one comment. But then she went a step farther when these came in the mail. I love them both for such different reasons! The pin is 5 different fun fabrics together with what looks like a brooch on top. Two of the fabrics are chenille and one is corduroy. Hello gorgeous!

The other one has what looks like a watch band so that it can be worn comfortably on my wrist. The edges of the fabric are burned and curled in and it has two wired ribbon leaves. It also has a beautiful brooch. I am in love. Absolute love. I have seen some like this on other blogs and of course on Etsy, but I have the prettiest!

Thanks Kelli for giving me a silver lining to this yuck that I'm living right now. I'm honored!

Aren't those just lovely? And what a sweet thing for Kelli to do. Now, I must go check out her blog, too. Anyone that nice is someone I also wish to follow.

Get well. Did you try the rice packs? They're really so helpful.

I'm so glad to see you got my flowers(they both have vintage earrings in the center) and I'm glad you like them. The flower is on a watch band and I have so much fun wearing mine. I was tickled to see you blogged about me and thrilled to get a comment from Joany. I also LOVE the models. Get better soon and Keep smiling. Kelli
