You may remember that my name was chosen in Jewels' drawing.

I recently received her generous gift. What a sweet blessing it was! I am truly so grateful that someone I do not even know would mail me such a thoughtful and generous gift. Seriously. And not just any gift, but a gift containing an apron and dishclothes, both of which were made by hand. Now, really. Isn't that just the kindest thing?

Here is what came in my package from Jewels:

*Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Liquid Dish Soap (Lavender scent)
*Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Surface Scrub (Lemon Verbena scent)
*Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Ironing Spray (Lemon Verbena scent)
*Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day All Purpose Soap Bar (Lemon Verbena scent)
*2 handmade washclothes (which are just like the ones my grandma used to make)
*1 handmade apron
*a sweet card from Jewels

(I don't know why this final picture turned out so dark, but if you can't read it, the sign says: "Thank you, Jewels! I love my gift!")


  1. Let me know how you like the Mrs. Meyers stuff. I've been reading so much about it online lately, and I have it in mind to buy some when I get back. LOVE lemon verbena. You look cute in your apron!

  2. What a wonderful gift! I love Mrs. Meyers stuff.
    You look so pretty! :)

  3. Dearest Stacy, you look beautiful in your apron! How very kind and sweet of you to thank me on your blog. I just loved the note and your great big, lovely smile :o) You made my day. So glad that everything found such a great home. Well, I'll let you go so you can get back to cleaning your cottage, and doing your ironing ;o) Big Papa is officially home, today (we went on day/and night trip, yesterday) so we are moving to a whole new rhythm--and let me tell you, it's *not* in *turtle-mode*! God isn't the only one that gets things done at warp speed! I hope you have a wonderful day, dear friend. Thanks for your thoughtfulness.
    Lovingly, Jewels
