Blessings From Afar...

We are so lucky to have such amazingly talented people in our mini community! And so many of them are just incredibly nice people, too! One of those very special and kind persons is Drora who gives us the wonderful Drora's Minimundo miniature blog. Drora had a giveaway in November to commemorate her 7th year of blogging! Can you imagine 7 years! Congratulations again, Drora!

Well, fortune smiled upon me and I was the lucky winner! I was expecting the package to take a long time. After all, Israel is over 6000 miles from Washington state! Imagine my surprise when, after only 3 weeks, the mail lady knocked on my door!


I received so many goodies it felt like Christmas had come early! There were beautiful potted flowers, a shell mirror, an adorable metal tray, a delicate shell necklace and a lidded box decorated in tiny shells!


She also included three of her adorable pipe cleaner animals: a teddy bear, kitty cat and a puppy. Those little faces just make me smile so much I could hug them to pieces!


It means so much to me to connect with like-minded and like-hearted people, and to share what we love with each other. So thank you Drora for your wonderful gifts of creativity, talent and most especially kindness! You are truly a blessing from afar!

Hugs,
Jodi
