A Box of Friendship!

Yesterday, Jim and I drove up to our home after attending a meeting and there on our porch steps sat this interesting looking box.

"Looks like you won again," Jim laughed. (He likes to tease me about my eBay and Etsy purchases!)

"No, I'm sure I don't have anything coming. I haven't ordered anything for a couple of weeks." I was completely surprised to see the parcel there.

Once inside the house, I couldn't wait to see the contents. And I couldn't have been more thrilled! That box held FRIENDSHIP in the form of three beautiful vintage greeting boxes from my dear friend Laurie of Indulge Your Shelf. She wrote that she'd seen them at a flea market and thought of me. Well, you all know how crazy I am about vintage boxes. And I can tell you that I not only loved the boxes but was touched deeply by the thought that Laurie had done this for me.

Thank you Laurie! You are an amazing friend and your thoughtfulness is beyond measure!


  1. I love that little flower delivery boy (and his doggie with the card in his mouth) to pieces! It gives me a lot of joy to know they're all a part of your collection!

  2. My Mother had some of these same types ... when we cleaned out everything. All I could do was just hold them & look at these little darling cards. Such sweetness ... Memories. TTFN ~Marydon

  3. Hello my bloggy friend! WooHoo!!! Party day is just a week away! I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's creative spaces. I have a request... I thought it would be easier for everyone to leave comments if we all turned off comment moderation and word verification during the day (or maybe week) of the party. To do that, go to customize, settings, comments...then scroll down to turn off comment moderation and word verification.
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a fabulous week. See you next Friday!!

    I love the boxes. It's so nice for you to have them in your collection.

  8. Oh, those boxes are so gorgeous! I'm still looking for some for myself, but I don't see things like that around here. It's so nice that one of your blogging friends thought of you when she saw them! Isn't the blogging world the greatest?!
