We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Program…….

To bring you THIS:
I have made many lovely friends here in the blogosphere. Some I have come to know in real life.
One such wonderful friend gifted me with, as she put it, just a ‘few little things’.

We were supposed to get together on her last visit to Florida but due to circumstances beyond our control it didn’t happen.
So she popped them in the mail.
Maybe it was a good thing because I would have hugged the stuffing out of her in gratitude!

I have a Harrods bag! 

Did you hear that? A Harrods bag!
Not only have I always longed to go to Harrods (my Grandpa used to tell me stories from his youth about Harrods) but now I actually OWN a Harrods bag!
And it’s PINK! (AND it looks uncannily like my favorite pair of pink flannel jammies I had when I was seven!)

The minute I opened the package I was flooded with memories of those warm, cuddly PJ’s!

AND a Harrods mug! I will have to remember to hold my pinkie up when I drink from it!

AND yummy scented soap! (Also pink! I see a theme here!)

And these two tea towels!
One is funny….

And the other is a beautiful compilation of watercolors of Kent where she's from.

All I can say is if it wasn’t for the ‘internets’ (LOL) we never would have met and become BFF’s and I would never have gotten to have A PINK HARRODS BAG! (I might have to sleep with it tonight like I used to do when I was little with my favorite Christmas presents!)


  1. Wow, what a great package to receive, so many lovely gifts :-)

  2. I am SO glad you like them - but what you have omitted from your blog entry, Robin, is that you sent ME an enORmous box of the most beautiful fabrics that remind me every day of Florida and of you. :-)
