I recently had one of those birthdays – you know the kind that end with an Oh. Say no more ;)
I’m not really one for birthdays or a fuss, Oh ones or otherwise, but wanted to share here a sweet & thoughtful gift that traveled across the miles to me from friends & family.
Each bead was given to her by a dear friend.
My sister secretly organised family & friends all back in the UK to go & gather a bead for me.
What arrived in my mailbox was a package full of beads, each individually wrapped with a note attached from afar. Some even came wrapped up like sweeties in a stripey sweetie bag! eep!
These have all been strung together now and are hanging as a garland in my sewing space :)
Like a scrappy quilt on a string, its crazy randomness makes me happy & reminds me of all the crazy randoms in my life ;)
It’s something that will be added to over the years I am hoping & I have a few crazy randoms in the bead tin to add to it myself I reckon.
I really love these kinds of collaborative gifts – have you received or done something similar?
