Gifts of the Heart

Simple delights are often the most treasured. Old letters shared between family members long gone, a handwritten recipe on the back of a well used cookbook page, an autumn leaf or Valentine rose pressed between the pages of the family Bible, a bauble or trinket kept safe in a little velvet lined music box....these are the things we tend to cherish most. Susie, my sweet friend and owner of The Polka Dot Rose bestowed such a gift on me this week. She sent me the two little bee pins you see pictured on my newest pincushion. Her dear Momma was Bea, and her uncle was a beekeeper. Susie, thank you so much for sharing your memories and your treasures with me!
My wish for you all is that you find and share a little joy today! xoxo AndieBee

That is adorable! I'm rather partial to pin cushions myself, so seeing this was a treat!

I had wandered over to let you know I'm having a giveaway at my blog, A Fine Feathered Nest, if you're interested.

Hey Sweetie Andie,
I think I am definitely in need of a pinkeep fix. They keep my vivid imagination going, lol. Just wanted to keep in touch, and remind you how lovely and talented you are. Never give up, never give in!!!!!
