My sweet friends ~ some old - some new, have poured out that milk of human kindness to me. Lorraine is a dear woman whom I've known since high school.
We weren't "friends" back then, just acquaintances, as we ran with different crowds. We connected on Facebook and she's been a loyal Muse follower and a wonderful friend and support to me ever since. She sent me these lovelies that belonged to her dear mom, thinking I could use them in my art...how thoughtful, giving, and loving...
The buttons in the second picture are from a Garden City policeman's uniform, which belonged to Lorraine's brother. I love the thimble, and my friend's sense of humor!!
This past week I enjoyed dinner with my dear friend and neighbor, Debbie. It's an occurrence that just doesn't happen often enough. Debbie presented me with this gift, a beautiful pen she made, for no reason other than being her friend. She hoped that it would remind me of the ocean waves that I love. I was overwhelmed!
