The unexpected gift
My good friend Nancy pugmom sent this cutest flamingo wallet to me. She said she is making something for my May birthday but this will take it's place. I can hardly wait to see the treasure she's making as she is just a party on two legs! How did she know I like a flamingo (smirk)
That sparkly pink folded box, pink tissue paper, and this inside...
Then out of the blue yesterday my bee mate Diana surprised me with this...
She said she wanted to thank me for all I do for her, which is just being her friend, which is easy.
Look at it dangling from my fingers... note the pink plastic flamingos guarding the yard behind.
Check out the little leather legs!
The zipper, handle and it came with a lucky penny inside. Diana and I are Southerners. I think that's a Southern custom of including a penny. Another beemate said her Japanese roots dictate a 5 yen piece to go in any purse.
About two months ago another bee mate came in with this...
How'd she know I love poodles (double smirk) Surprise! A gift for no reason, just because.
Because she's thoughtful.
So to keep this surprise gift thing going I made something for my friend recently seen again in Ohio, Maria
(see post HERE) It will be winging it's way to her soon. She loves blue, so a blueberry pie pin cushion is her surprise gift.
QuiltSwissy is doing a project giving away quilted items at random. Given or gotten any surprise gifts lately?
