and every now and then people come into our lives and change it in a fairytale sort of way, by that i mean it has a magical feel, and gifts you with the opportunity to be accepted as you are, and yet at the same time expand your understanding of yourself through what you share with each other.
i am amazed at how, though we live so far apart, we still found each other, through my coming across Cheryl's blog and admiring her handmade fairy crowns. Cheryl and her daughter Maddy have since filled my life with such thoughtfulness,care,love and touches of nature from their home, and i have purchased and been gifted some of their enchanting handmade creations. (and sent them some of mine also)
inside one of the packages from them in america...these little treasures were from Yosemite national park!
and Cheryl's letter is written upon a vintage book, that's been cut down, it even has my name on (smiles)
and some trinket dishes, that are so pretty, scraps of fabric from which they make the skirts for the etsy shop MissTeapot dressup and a butterfly bracelet.
it is just as nice to send packages in return, and share my own little world with them, i am inspired to find things to send that are fairy-like. they don't necessarily have to cost a lot, but mean so very much to the reciever, making them smile with that special kind of feeling you get at the end of a fairytale, a happiness from the simple things in life, like a handwritten letter from a friend.
this is one of the first parcels i sent cheryl last November, with a vintage copy of Enid Blyton's The Enchanted wood, and Liberty fabric, and vintage lace.
there is definately magicalness at play when you connect with others who are kindred spirits. that is the great beauty of blogs, we can share our worlds and touch people who really resonate with us and our story,
love and wishes
