Treasures From Pat

"Love is the true means by which the world is enjoyed;
our love to others, and others love to us."

How did I ever get to be such a lucky girl?
I was supposed to pick a birthday gift from Pat's shop back in March but wanted
to "save" the fun for a special time .
The other day was that special time and in the blink of an eye ~
this Treasure arrived at my door!

AND this absolutely amazing cell or card case and charming "Shop Till You Drop" pin
AND all of these other treats including her hand dyed silk ribbon which is the best you will find.
PLEASE DO double click on the photo's so you can see up close the details!!!
The best part is the love that pours out of her work. It makes me cry every time ~ which my husband thinks is very funny ~ in a good way.
Teddi starts to lick me like crazy ~ not knowing they are tears of joy.
One of my favorite quotes reminds me very much of my special friend ~
whom must be rich in all the very best ways ~ if this quote bears any truth ............
Life begets life.
Energy creates energy.
It is by spending ones self that one becomes rich. s.bernhardt

Thanks you Pat Winter for making my life richer by your friendship.
