Happy Wednesday

Here we are at Wednesday again! My husband's days off are Monday and Tuesday, so Wednesday is not a favorite day of mine. After almost 37 years of marriage, I still hate when he is away from me, although thankful he has a job!

My dear friend Misty and her grandma and mom have a family treat. They give day gifts for each other. Just a little gift for nothing. Isn't that wonderful? So, I told Misty I was going to let her adopt me and let me in on the fun!
Sunday she met me at church and gave me this precious, and I do mean precious to me...day gift.
She made a collage of our day we spent touring the homes in Windsor Square. She included where we ate lunch, the addresses of the homes, and my tree I fell in love with.


Then to top it off, her mom Debbie (who I made the acrylic book) made me this adorable pillow. You all know my love of pillows.


The fabric is of inspirational phrases..


She crochet the lovely doilie in the center....and



the lace! Isn't that amazing!!


A few weeks ago my friend Melody gave me this pillow in Teal....to take to my chemo. She has one of those amazing embroidery machines and put the words in the shape of a butterfly!




Isn't it so pretty?
So these gifts added to what my husband says are 10,000 personal friends in my home! How about you? any "day" gifts in your life?

Aren't friends so precious? Your gifts are sweet, especially the blue embroidered butterfly pillow.
My friend surprised me with some large foxglove plants from her garden. Does that count? Anyway it was very thoughtful of her.

AWE! That is awesome! You get more stuff than anyone I know. :) I love how thoughtful it was. And the pillow is gorgeous. I can't let my husband see your post about the picture. ... He might get an idea and that would not be good. LOL! :)

Ceekay, I can think of no one more deserving of some lovely little gifts like you received! The collage momentos of a fun day are so meaningful & I just ♥ both pillows!!

All your flowers are looking really pretty, too. My sis in Gilbert told me she trimmed her roses in a sleeveless top & got scratches all over her arms. She was happy to be outside, working on her plants, though. She gets some GORGEOUS roses!! She dumps the dog's water bowl on them every day so she can give him fresh water & the roses just thrive on that daily dose of moisture.

Here, we have PLENTY of moisture...it is pouring down rain & DGS's Confirmation is in about 2 hours. :( I'm glad my outfit is washable silk!!!!!

Hugs,
Rett
