I know Halloween is over, but I wanted to share this very special something that arrived this week and took me completely by surprise, from the always delightful and sometimes hilarious "Mrs. Staggs" who keeps a wonderful little blog called A Happy Miscellaney which she calls her Household Gazette. A visit to her site is like falling into the pages of a Victoria magazine. Some of you may already know my fondness for that long ago published, but ne'er forgotten fantasy world of goodness and grace. And that's just what you will find in "Merryville", a charming place to land when you need a respite from the harsh realities of life. Like having tea with a dear friend and so much more.
So, with great pleasure and abandon I tore open the box she sent me to find Miss Penelope Pumpkin (a truly amazing creation that she made!) along with assorted other lovelies to decorate my new buffet table. Can you believe how sweet that is? But I have to tell you; our very own Miss Gourdelia was absolutely greenish-gray with envy when she saw her. Indeed, she cuts quite a striking figure, does she not? Every detail is perfect and I simply LOVE HER! I now feel like I have a little piece of Mrs. Staggs right here beside me, to remind me of all the good things, and especially the good kind people in this world that go out of their way to spread a little sunshine. Thank you so much for that! It truly warms my heart.
It's been a busy week and I regret that I haven't been able to respond to all the kind comments left about Smokey and the Fuzzy Pink Monster. But I hope you know, that I do read and enjoy each one so much, and am grateful for every word. Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend!
