I came home from my morning walk, all gung-ho to write a totally different post but saw the package and knew what it had to be! And that I had to write something totally different.
Let me explain….
Way back in January, the lovely Janet Rörschåch, posted a picture of herself wearing a fabulous crown that she created. I cannot remember exactly what I said and her blog is now protected, but I know I said something about how lovely it was and next thing I know, she’s asking me for my address so that I may have my very own crown for my big Five-Oh birthday.
Thanks to Snail Mail and all that, it arrived today, exactly two weeks after my birthday. The date matters naught; what does matter is just how much joy it brought me! I was pleasantly surprised to also find a journal in the bottom of the box with a lovely note from Janet and the following rules to the Birthday Crown
1. It is fragile, so be a tad careful (indeed it is, I reattached a few ribbons!)
2. Please take a photo
3. Please share something of yourself in the book
4. Find the next person to send the crown to. No special reason needed.
5. Smile! Someone knows you are special enough to wear something whimsical and beautiful.
I cannot tell you in mere words how happy this made me – too excited to bother putting make-up on so you’ve got me “au naturel”!
Thank you, Janet!
You have made my day a most wonderful and memorable one through your gift.
And now to figure out who will be next…
