While searching through a stash of my own metal flea market finds, looking for a special chain, I found the perfect 52 Flea "thing"--an old brass hotel key tag from the days when they kept the keys behind the concierge's desk! I'd love to send it to you..
...and so she did!
Thank you Lizzie! ....you knew I would love it and I do!
I am so grateful to be a part of this blogging community of ours...
...I didn't know Lizzie before and hadn't yet discovered her lovely blog or her wonderful Etsy shop
...but like so many other dear blogging friends... ...Lizzie is thoughtful, generous and kind and sent me this old brass tag just because she knew it would make me smile. :)
It is wonderful to meet people like Lizzie.... ...She gets me....understands me... and is a true kindred spirit.
...Lizzy also wrote... My favorite part of these old tags is how the hole is so worn & crooked, from years of use.And I like the patina, that's why I just wiped it clean but didn't polish it.
Yes....we are soul sisters. Who knew there were so many of us? I didn't ....until I started blogging.
Feeling grateful tonight for lots of things...
how was Room 52 decorated? ...and who stayed there?
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
