Welcome Home!



I had a good flight back today and was met and warmly welcomed at the airport by Mr. Flea...(it seems he missed me!)
...and then welcomed again by some sweet purple crocus in our garden when we arrived home...



Even the first of the daffodils bloomed in the spring sunshine!



The sweet surprises didn't stop there...



A package had arrived from Mira of Belle Blanc ....
... this beautiful handmade linen heart was waiting for me...
click to enlarge and read this special poem by EE Cummings...



...also included were some of Mira's lovely soaps, a packet of Baby Boo pumpkin seeds and a copy of the collage she made of all the entries in her favorite cup contest giveaway...



How very lucky I am that Mira loved my cup as much as I do!



Thank you dear Mira....your beautiful heart will be cherished for years to come!
Your generosity and the time spent on all the details and presentation of your gifts is deeply appreciated.

I had a wonderful time with my family in Florida but it was good to be home again too...
...and I cannot forget our little Starla who welcomed me home with kitty kisses....

But ... I am not home for long!
I am repacking and getting ready to leave tomorrow morning for Montreal, Canada!
We are off to visit McGill University and to meet Ms. Zita from Mlle Magpie!

Let's see what we can find in Montreal to show you!
Stay tuned...

Be well!
:)

Dear Laura,
I am very envious. I love Mira's blog, Belle Blanc and, I forgot to enter her teacup giveaway. That linen heart is stunning and amazing and her soaps are delightful. But, they went to a really good home !!!!
Welcome home and bon voyage !
Have a great time in Canada. Have a safe journey. XXXX

You know that is my favourite poem..
