special delivery

In the midst of all the cake baking today I managed to run a few errands in the snow.  I ordered a couple of books that I have been meaning to buy. As I was returning home I could see the postal woman walking up my steps.  I got a little excited. As I pulled up to the stop sign, I saw her knock on my door... I got even more excited... I couldn't wait to park and get back inside to see what had arrived.  Turns out there were 2 packages of interest, addressed to me.  Yay!  I love getting mail, it makes me smile, even if it's just a simple Hello, it still means somebody was thinking about me, and that makes me smile.  Anyhow...
how old are these stamps?

this little angel was wrapped in tissue paper
atatched to the angel was this...
the back of the card simply states 'MADE FOR YOU BY MAGGIE2' with a butterfly stamped beside it
This was all that was inside the card.  Now, I am left to assume that the angel was sent from Joanne Diamond, the only thing is... I do not know a Joanne Diamond.  And if I actually do, I am sorry, I am scattered brained.  It happens to the best of us I suppose.   So Joanne Diamond... thank you.  You put a smile (and a look of puzzlement) on my face.  If you would like to know more about Angels for Hope...go here.

And then D hands me a small package... the one I had been anxiously awaiting... I felt like a little girl as I unwrapped the tissue paper that was tied up neatly with a yellow and silver bow.  At first gleamed...
you can actually feel all the warmth and compassion as you hold this little treasure in your hand
This is the wonderful gift that was bestowed upon me during the pay it forward give-aways that the lovely Dana hosted for the holidays.  If you are not familiar with her work, you MUST click here.  I must also mention that my name was drawn (from many) on Sebastion's due date.  A bit magical how things work out really.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.  I really plan on placing a custom order in the future so that we can have a sculpture of the entire family...  I think that would be lovely.  In the meantime, I will bask in it's glory.


  1. I filled out an Angel of Hope form for you :) I filled it out awhile ago actually.

    I did put yes when they asked if I wanted you to know it was requested by me. SO maybe someone else requested one for you as well? I don't know but I am happy you got the angel!

  2. Awww. Thank you Trena! I think maybe packages were mixed up. The Envelope that I received was originally addressed to a Jill MacN...something. There is a sticker over here name and then my name written on top... maybe some other random person received an angel from Trena:) Funny when you think about it. I kept wondering how someone I didn't know would know my address.

  3. Haha :) That is probably what happened and there is a person out there thinking, "Who is Trena?" LOL. Oh well, all that matters is that you and this Jill person got your angels ♥ I am so happy you got it and it is so pretty! ♥ Sebastion ♥

  4. Oh and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your sculpture! She is just an amazing artist.
