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...

Ooh, that wool already looks at home. I'm glad you like it! Vacation... ah...
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!
