I have always thought that I was blessed with good friends and family. I love people and so I try hard to treat everyone well.
I have made many friends here in the World Wide Web that I feel will be friends for life. I also have the most wonderful customers that a person could ask for.
One customer arranged with several of my friends to surprise me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Red Tulips and Dutch Iris's. Two of my favorite flowers.
I had to go and get my new Drivers License with the terrible picture, and came home to this big box on the porch. OMG is all I could say. I have the best friends. How very special I felt in this Big Old World.
Tears of joy flowed down my cheeks and my nose looked like I might be leading Santa's sleigh as I read the card attached.

Dear Pea,
We thought we'd get together and send you a little something to tell you how special you are and that we are happy that you were born this day.
Go out there and enjoy your day! Happy birthday Pea!!
- Hugs and smiles from your friends, Alba and Arnold, Pam Gracia( Soft in the Head), Tonya (Back Porch Pickins), Linda Greene( Meadowbrook Cabin Primitives) and Annie(Allegheny Annies-glitter your world)

What a joy to know that these wonderful Artisans think of me as a friend. I am honored and privileged to know them. More thankful for their generous gift than words could express.

When the Postman arrived yesterday with 2 packages, I thought what could this be? I received all my orders. A sweet little Valentines box arrived from my friend Alba. What a giving, caring friend she is. Thinking of me again. Just look at the wonderful goodies she made for me. Time and love went into that box.

Then last week when so much was going on with Mom, I felt the need for a angel. A angel was sent from the dear Kimmie of Prims by Kim . A wonderful gift for my Birthday. She now hangs in my studio and what a adorable painting she is. Kimmy has the finest crackle. Just darling. Thank you Kimmy and Alba for making my day so very special. Everyone made me feel special with birthday wishes. Thank you ALL!
Loves ya,Pea
