A Pressie from a Friend

Good morning Bloglanders

I hope you are well, ready and excited about all the upcoming festivities.  I'm going to keep everything low key and just enjoy every second with my family.

Last week I went to Robertson to visit my oldest friend and she gave me a handmade gift. Here it is:

My friend is not the world's biggest crafter - she would rather work in her garden than sew BUT for me she took the time to make something special. She made little rosettes out of scrap fabric and added buttons, beads and little bells to the centres.  When it is in my purse I can hear the little bells chiming - reminds me that I'm special to her. She even made a fabric flower for her craft gift packaging:

And I always get fresh roses from her garden:

Isn't that what this time of the year is all about?? Showing those near to you that you really care.  I know that my friend's special effort made me feel loved and cherished and for years to come I'll remember Christmas 2013 when I hear the little bells chime in my handbag.

Thanks for looking at my blog. Have a great day and please check back as I'll be back with some more crafting fun to share.

Have a great day!!
