I was lucky enough to win a gift from Kim (Musings from Kim K.) (http://kenward.blogspot.com)(wish I was better at posting links and understanding all this technology!).
This week I was invited over to her home to pick up my gift as well as tour her family's new treehouse. Lucky was the big word-her home is filled with wonderful treasures and she took me on a tour of her home, craft room and, last but not least, the treehouse. I must admit that Kim and I are not only blogging friends; her mother, Barb, and I have been friends for many years. Kim has been so encouraging to me in this blogging adventure and I must thank her for her supportive posts!
My gifts included a bouquet of button flowers (made by Kim), a candle (embellished by Kim), a vintage handkerchief, and Jasmine teabags. Everything was delightful and have places of honor in my home. I took a picture to show off my gifts-one of my Teddy bears now has a beautiful kerchief around his neck!
Kim was such a delight to meet and is as lovely as I thought she would be (she is her Mother's daughter!). She allowed me to take a picture of her next to a wonderful miniature house her mother made and hand painted for her. Such a talented family! Kim's daughters are already in training to craft and shop for vintage treasures and are treasures themselves. Josie is celebrating her fifth birthday this month- I love her enthusiasm for super heroes. Emma is into everything purple, especially if Justin Bieber is wearing it. I even met Kim's husband, Chris, the builder extraordinaire. All I can say about the treehouse is WOW! Kim has blogged about it several times so please find a way to visit her blog to see for yourself how terrific it is.
Thanks Kim, Chris, Emma and Josie! It was wonderful meeting you in person and visiting your home (and treehouse!).
PS The bluebird in the last picture is a new acquisition which arrived this week. It was a lucky find after reading a blog and following a link to
Etsy. Lucky me!
