A Special Gift

I have been so happy that I started a blog. I cannot even explain how much it has enriched my life and how much fun I have with it! Yesterday a little gift came that just made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside about just how nice people can be.



My blogging friend sent me a gift that she just knew I would love. It is the perfect color for my home, and she knows how I love mercury glass...



The color just goes everywhere in my home! I always say you can never have to many candle holders so this is just perfect!


The blogger friend who sent it to me is Bunny Jean. You may know her from the Bunny Hop..which is a fun party that started as a newbie party, and now is open to everyone! The party usually starts around 4 on Tuesdays. You can find it on my sidebar. Bunny Jean as always been very supportive of both Janae and my blogs, and has helped me with things I didn't know how to do, like get rid of the "prove you're not a robot" thing in my comments. She is a great friend.


It even looks perfect with the new color I think I am going to do in the sun room!


It just makes me feel good, to think of the sweet goodness of some people. I have met so many really genuinely nice people through blogging. I watch a lot of crime shows (Investigation Discovery is one of my favorite channels) and I am so glad that I can balance that with the goodness I have found in fellow bloggers.

Thank you Bunny Jean!!!

Also, thought I'd give you the weather report--Wyatt got snowed on on his way to school today. I guess March has come in like a loin! Hopefully it will go out like a lamb---


Don't forget to stop by the Bunny Hop!

Edited to say: There is a  $25 Scentsy gift certificate giveaway on the Bunny Hop this week!

Hi Sandy!

When I saw it... I just had to get it for you! Your posts are such a great addition to all of my parties.

I was curious what it would look like when lit... thanks for taking that picture.

Also, thank you for posting about the giveaway I am having :)

I love mercury glass too. The candle holder looks gorgeous lit. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You liked the garden I shot. I'd like to see it later in the season too, but it will be owned by different people.
Take care,
Leslie

I love all your blogging friends...they give such positive, uplifting, encouraging comments. How good it would be if we all did that to everyone we are in contact with.

Wyatt looked cute all dressed up for school, standing in the snow.

What a lovely gift, Sandy! I used my free quart of paint from Ace on the shelf piece today! The jury is still out on it though. Two coats over black isn't bad, I guess.
