A Package For Me

Recently, my longtime friend, Maria, sent me an email letting me know to be on the lookout for a package coming from her. Y’all know Maria well from her great blog, but many of you likely do not know that Maria and I met several years ago on the old Kirkland’s message board. In fact several of our K’s friends also now blog. Maria is multi-talented and never ceases to amaze us with her great ideas. Just look at the wreath she created for me..now I’m not that gifted to create; therefore, it would be difficult for me to make something as lovely as she does and pass it on.

In the next closeup photo, you will be able to see how well she connected the lovely flowers to the wreath form. And listen seriously, I’m needing to get a bow maker like Maria uses for her beautiful wreaths, pillows, gift packages…really if you need ideas for your packages or any of the items mentioned, Maria can likely help you with the name of stores to find just the right items. And I plan to go get that bow maker this week. Here’s the closeup photo of how the flowers stay in place.


Thanks, Maria, for being a super friend! You really do share lots of information with all who visit your blog. Our Home Away From Home is a real treat!

  1. Lucky you! Beautiful wreath to remind you that Spring is just around the corner.

    • Glenda, Maria surprised me with this gorgeous wreath she made. And Spring is sounding great even though our temperature is dropping again tonight. Let’s think Spring and shop for it.

  2. I am so happy you like it! Love how it looks on your door. Enjoy it!

    • Maria, I totally love the wreath. Thank you very much for making it for me. Bob and I really like how it looks on the inside of our front door. You are very gifted. :)

  3. Hi Helen! How sweet and what a pretty wreath! Thank you so much for popping in to see me and hope you’re doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  4. So happy to have you stop by and leave a sweet comment on my blog. Had to check yours out too! Nice.

  5. Hi Helen,
    That wreath that your friend made for you is just gorgeous! Just in time for springtime!

    • Hi Jane, Maria did a great job on that wreath. I think she had heard that I love lavender! Bob and I are really enjoying it inside as the birds attack most things we try on our front exterior door. BTW, your salad caught my eye with all those strawberries and pecans! Thanks for visiting.

  6. Wonderful work on the wreath. Lavender is so pretty. We have lots of it around our yard. Happy spring.

    • Linda, I’m very happy to share with you, that Maria from “Our Home Away From Home” surprised me with the beautiful wreath she made. Hope you are doing well and enjoying spring! Thanks for visiting!

  7. What a beautiful wreath, you have a sweet and talented friend! I love the entrance of your house with that wreath and I adore lavender!
    Yes, the movie was one of the worst dissapointments, specially because it’s a Bible story! Someone just mentioned to me that the director is an atheist anyway, it’s no wonder! Thank you for visiting me, I’m so glad I’m not the only one, so far no one agrees with this type of Hollywood!
    Have a blessed week.

    • Fabby, thank you very much for the lovely note. Maria and I have been friends for several years down and she surprised me with the lovely wreath. About that movie, I’m so glad that my childhood friend, Margaret, shared what she had heard about that movie, before it came out. Some doubted it would be the way it is. I knew if Margaret had checked it out as not appropriate, I’d go with her judgement. Thanks, Helen
