Making memories one day at a time.......and then I write about it.

Thank You Nancy!


A package arrives in the mail.  Who is it for?


Ahhh.  Henny Penny of course!


Henny Penny sets the package down in the grass and slowly, almost reverently starts to undo the raffia ribbon.


As she undoes the tape trying not to harm what is inside, she begins guessing.  What is it?


Not knowing if it is fragile or breakable she takes great care.  Her Mum knows....... but doesn't say a word as she watches what unfolds.


A small intake of breath, "I know what this is"!  And then, a smile.


"It's a purse"!  I explain to Henny Penny where the purse came from.  Nancy in Montana sent it to Henny Penny after I'd commented on her blog and said that Henny Penny would go 'gaga' over the purse she'd made.  The blog world is full of wonderful people.


This purse is exquisite.  The felt flowers all hand sewn.  Each stitch perfection.  A certain little girl, when I checked on her sleeping last night.........had her new pink purse in bed with her.........

Thank you Nancy.  I pray you have sunshine and smiles in your heart for that is the gift you gave Henny Penny and me.

P.S.  Here is a link to Nancy's blog.  Be prepared to see all sorts of warm yumminess when you see what this talented lady does with applique and felt and quilts and........ a whole ton of wildlife right in her backyard.  Amazing.  Breathtakingly amazing.  All of it.  Almost as amazing as this ladies huge heart.  Again, thank you Nancy!!

  2. I think there is no more significant a thing than to have a child take what you have offered to bed with him or her. It's the highest and dearest of affirmations - taking your gift into the very heart of safety and home. And now I'm off to see the blog and wake myself up with delight.

    1. I know! That is exactly how I feel. I should have taken a photo excepting I had Julie bouncing all over wanting to be fed and taken potty........ You can't do much else in the mornings until that is done.

  8. Okay. I just HAD to go to Nancy's blog and boy was I sucked in . . . deep. She's a dear. And of course she sent that purse to Henny Penny. My guess is that she was deeply rewarded when she saw that beaming smile on her face after opening the package.

    That is sweet. Really, really sweet.
