A surprise in my mailbox

On this bright, warm, sunny autumnal day.  I trekked down to my mailbox after coming home from a long day at work.  I opened the box to a surprise, a package.

Sent airmail, see the sticker in English, see the stick en francais (french speaking friends please forgive me).

What could it be?

So beautifully and thoughtfully packaged...

And sent so far....  from this wonderful, thoughtful friend I have made in the world of blogging, from another country... across the continent.

Lisa at Suburban Retreat sent me this wonderful thank you, just for passing on a few tips I have learned as a fellow new "bloggee."

How did she know, I was looking for the final, just right thing for my little autumnal tablescape?  That nothing had seemed to be just right, a little too this, a little too that.

This token of friendship, is the perfect finish.

So if you haven't been there, head on over to Suburban Retreat, tell Lisa you've come from Red Gate Farm and that Chris sent you... you'll really enjoy her beautiful home, gardens and her down right friendliness too!

To the nicest person I've never met, thank you Lisa. Hugs from afar.

  4. Aren't bloggers the best? and I think there are few things as fun as getting a surprise in the mail.
