Yes I am still kicking around. My apologies to those who may have been popping in and finding me MIA.
The end of December is just way too big for me to handle and I could not find time to post, let alone work out where to start a post. Hubby was off work from Xmas Eve, Xmas Day with his family, Boxing Day spent with our kids and their husbands/partner, 27th was Hubby's grandfathers 90th, another major milestone snuck in (and I am not one bit happy about it) and then New Years. Way too much activity for me
Anyway, back to my title
Lookee what I received on Xmas Eve from the lovely Kim at Kimbles At Home
Aren't they just lovely
And Kim designed and made them herself
Thank you so much Kim
They were both put to good use over the last week and they certainly added decorative value to the kitchen and my home (didn't put a tree up, just a few tiny knicks and knacks)
And I felt so sure that there was no way the postal services would get it here in time - loved to be proved totally wrong on this count ☺
Now Kim sent me these wonderful items in the spirit of P.I.F. - Pay It Forward.
The expression "pay it forward" is used to describe the concept of asking that a good turn be repaid by having it done to others instead. There is also a wonderful movie by that title. If you haven't seen it, then put it high on your must watch list. Just make sure some tissues are handy. I loved it and the concept when I saw it many years ago.
And it is now my turn to spread the love
So I will choose three (3) lovely people who leave a comment on this post, to pass a small gift on to.
I will make pick the lucky giftees (by random) on the 11 January, a week away and funnily enough 11-1-11
I have a lot of little things to show everyone, but that can wait for another post
