off-guard...

I'm usually a very vigilant person,always prepared,ready ...but when we returned home from our Saturday morning shopping in the city ,I was truly caught off-guard. There lay a box,a large box that the postman had left by the door.Now, he and I have a thing that I've spoken of before,but I swear I did not order anything...instead it was a gift,a lovely,lovely gift from Kim.She really didn't have to do it but,it made my Saturday and I'm thankful that she did! She sent this wonderful Jo Sharp tweed in 2 earthy tones that agree with me perfectly-they will become Sunday knitting... there was this little wrapped bag-I adore that rusted,primitive key-and I wonder how they got that gorgeous bead on there? Inside was the softest overdyed velvet ribbon and 2 carved horn buttons-Kim is very astute-she remembers everything-like my love for buttons and ribbons... and then this bag...a black clutch,straw with a dotted lining; and a very roomy inside-lots of possibilities for uses...this will be coming on vacation !Thanks Kim for everything...you really know how to spoil me...

What an awesome gift! I love the old key with the bead on it. Very cool as is the poka dot purse.

BTW, for some reason I thought you were in Chicago. I'm sorry about that. Not sure why, other than you seem like a Chicago person to me.

How delightful to unexpectedly get such beautiful things. Kim is such a lovely, generous person (I've also been the lucky recipient of her impeccable taste). Enjoy!

i absolutely LOVE the wool and needles pic, and am envious of your key w/ the lampworked donut bead. i just love the vintage/colonial/hand-made feel of those pix
