....all the way from Nova Scotia! My sweet blog galpal, Miss Kim from Millie's Mats sent me a little package of happiness last week.
Although Kim (not to be confused with "Millie" who is actually Miss Kim's adorable little (but wee-bit-psychotic) furball) is an amazing hooker (errr....RUG hooker), she also has a mad talent with her thighs and knitting needles....
(You do do that with needles, right?) (As for the thighs...hey - I'm not going there.....you'll have to ask her!)
Anyways....she knitted up some wonderful dishcloths and sent me a whole stash of them - in the most beautiful neutral colors. I LOVE knitted/crocheted dish cloths!
The girl does some pretty work, doesn't she?
Kim also sent me this little "seed of happiness":
I'd never heard of these before - but so sweet! They are little "smiles" made from leftover lumps of clay by Mark Borella, "The Seeds of Happiness Guy."
Awww..... I love him! (The clay guy - not Mark.....although I might love Mark if I knew him....that doesn't sound right either so just never mind.....)
Thank so much, Kim!! You're a sweetheart! Somehow you always know when I need a smile. I've already broken in one of the cloths - and it almost does make that mundane chore of washing dishes a bit more fun (note: I did say "almost!")
Kim is an absolute hoot....She's brought me lots of smiles over the past year or so that I've known her. This one is an extra special kind of smile. Thanks Miss Kim. (And, uhmmmm, is it true you'll be celebrating a birthday on Thursday??? Woo Hoo!! Happy, Happy, Birthday!!! I don't think my card is going to get there on time....) :o
Oh....and for all of you who might be wondering, this is "Millie" (Hope you don't mind my "borrowing" this photo Kim.....):
