Thanks everyone for your lovely comments on my last post...

I have been writing my blog since April..not that long...but in this short space of time, i have made some really wonderful friends. One of the frustrating things about blogging is being so far from everyone and not being able to meet...although i will meet some of you one day i do enjoy conversations on Messenger, emails, swaps and of course wonderful comments!! Yesterday i read Gracia's lovely post - it made me think about how we get so much out of the fact that in our blog community we live in such varied countries!!!
We dont celebrate Christmas here but i am so enjoying all of your posts leading up to christmas - lovely handmade decorations, festive foods and thoughts, I almost feel i will be celebrating with you!!! I wish you all a very happy Christmas (and the lead up to it)...egg nog and all!!!!

One of the first friends i made through my blog is Wendy - we just clicked from the beginning and have since become very close! Today I received this beautiful handmade bag from Wendy for my birthday!!! Of course she also included some goodies...THANK YOU lovely Wendy!!!!


I found this leaf and the above flower on the way home from picking up Shelly today. The flower looked so beautiful lying on the pavement alone...and i love the rusty look of the leaf...


Happy Tuesday!!

    I am so glad you like it. I only posted it a few days ago so it got there quickly. It has been my absolute privilege to meet you through blogging.

    What a beautiful bag! I am glad you enjoy this blogging community as much as I do. I was also touched by Gracia's post and how true that blogging breaks all barriers of distance and culture. Thank you for your gentle and delicate artistic spirit, will be celebrating Christmas with a star for you here in the UK.

    it is amazing, isn't it? and so hard to explain to people who don't blog! friends here are always complimenting the objects i have around my apartment, and i'll respond with "oh my blog friend from barcelona sent that to me" or "i bought that from this great duo in australia" and they just look at me funny. but i think the past two years would have been much more difficult for me without my blog.
    and i too love those photographs. i love the wood background.

    Thanks, Julie. I'm so glad you felt a connection with my post... I tried not to let the words become too tangled which is often tricky when writing about something so dear. I love to visit your blog, to walk alongside you and explore your environment... maybe one day I'll be able to comb the flea markets of Tel Aviv with you or sit in on one of your art classes. Enjoy that beautiful handmade bag from Wendy... what a rich and wonderful little blog world we have found!
    take care, g

    dear julie, i completely agree with your sentiments... and i'm so happy to have got to know you through this community :) i've gained so much inspiration over the 6 months since i stumbled into blogging + so enjoy the connections we make...sometimes it feels like we're all just around the corner from each other + then there's all the wonderful extras of finding how being spread out around the world can bring new discoveries every day. x
