Don’t you just love gifts?

Especially gifts that just arrive, for no specific reason?

And sometimes, isn’t the gift wrap just as thoughtful and special as the gift itself?

I have superlative friends who know how to surprise with a gift just when it’s needed.

Here are just a few I’ve received recently. Aren’t they lovely?

Vanessa's gift

Vanessa wrapped her gift so beautifully

Inside Vanessa's gift

And here's what was inside...

Anna's Book

A book Anna carried back from India

Flowers from Gail

Gail brought flowers from the farmer's market


Renee brought liquorice toffee


Anna gave cashmere armwarmers; Deirdre a purple fabric flower pin

The women who gave them to me are lovelier still.

I’m in love with loveliness.

Can you think of something lovely that someone lovely has done for you?

      Really? I feel like the only thing I know (from you) is that I should use the natural light in my office, so that’s what I do…use the same spot each time. ( :
