I know you're all too polite to ask, so I'll just go ahead and tell you: I'm 52 today! This birthday is going to be a bit different because it also happens to be the day of our Chamber's 31st Annual Golf Classic, and since I do some PR for them (and, to be honest, since it's a lot of fun!), I'll be on the golf course most of the day today. Happily, my birthday celebrations started early this week thanks to surprise gifts from several tea-loving friends, including my pen pal, Sandy. Isn't this stitched and hand-embroidered piece lovely? I was so thrilled when I opened my package from her and saw it!
And since I love-love-love handmade things, I was also pleased to find a hand-crocheted dishcloth and sewn and knitted tea bag cozies, as well as decorative flowers I can use for projects of my own!
The package seemed endless, as I also unwrapped a beautiful new bib-style apron with a garden theme, as well as some garden goodies for decorating. I'm pretty sure I know what I'm going to do with these, and it has to do with tea, so stay tuned!
And finally, Sandy remembered my dream of having a cottage at the beach and sent these lovely supplies to help me prepare. Don't you just love receiving such thoughtful gifts from tea-loving friends? I am so blessed to have Sandy as one of mine!
