Turning a Bad Day into a Good Day

Yesterday started out as such a bummer but low and behold….my wonderful blogging friends stepped up and gave me a great big hug….and I am so thankful for each and everyone of you!

And in the afternoon, I was so delighted to find this waiting for me at the Post Office.

And look what fabulous goodies, my dear friend, Betsy of made for me! I sent her a watch that was given to me by my first boyfriend, Rocky, and look what a fabulous broach/necklace she made for me! It was a plain old ordinary Timex and she made it into a one-of-a-kind work-of-art!
