We went to a new place for coffee this morning next to a local garden centre. Right in the middle of a cafe was a table with several buckets of foliage for sale. I came away with a bouquet that they were selling off to raise funds for the local village school. I couldn't believe my luck as there were more flowers than foliage and all for the price of a large latte!
Thinking that this was my surprise "find" for the day, blessing number one was followed by another. A friend who I met when I lived in E. Europe sent me a package. I knew what the content was, or at least I thought I did. In addition to the item I was expecting was a selection of lace and braid which she was sharing with me from her mother's collection. I was so chuffed. Crafters are very generous and this really gave me some inspiration to "build" more fairy accommodation!
And finally, an odd "blessing". In a fit of weeding frenzy (got to do it when I feel well enough), I came across this tree stump wearing the most amazing leathery type fungus at its base. Sadly not edible, but very pretty.
