blogging friends !

Hów you find them is sometimes a miracle
(just like it is in "normal" life)
but you do find them :


If you see something in Blogland you very much like or admire
you comment on that.
And then, all of a sudden,
there is a spark
when it works both ways.

That's how I found Cecilia
of Burned Furniture.
A funny name perhaps, but she makes great stuff !
I send her a little something just for the fun of it
Today I recieved a package ...

this was in it !

Carefully packed in a box ... 
with lots of stuff for protection during the mail ...
in a soft piece of funny fabric with a bow around it ...
was this wonderful wooden spoon
especially made for

me !

Thank you very much for this wonderful gift, Cece !

(my dear M admires it too, he would like to do some woodburning too, I think)

It has become a good habit
to take the colourpencils and a sketchbook
with us when we go on holiday.
In this small book are mandalas, made by anyone who feels like it.

This one I made
after we visited my blogging friend Gabi in Germany

(she'll recognize this !)

4 opmerkingen:

  1. Ahhh...aren't friendships the spice of life! Beautiful spoon and drawing :)

  2. Ein superschöner Löffel ist das , genial!
    Und Deine Zeichnung ist perfekt! Sogar der Kuchen mit Mohnfüllung fehlt nicht, und eine entschwebende kleine Tigerkatze, aber ich habe ja schon gesehen, daß sie sich sehr mit Deinem Gabriel befreundet hat!
    Viele liebe Grüße

  3. How wonderful! What a lovely gift. I've admired Cecelia's work for some time. Such beautiful patterns. And I like your mandala.

  4. Cecelia has taken wood burning to a whole new level. Next time I am in the Boston area I will check her work out in the galleries she mentions.
    I love the felting that your friend Gabi does...I will look closer at her blog.
    Blog friends are great and it is always fun to meet them in person.
