Birthday Surprise!

I received a very surprise present from Lorena of RoseChicFriends the other day and was literally astounded by something I had mentioned that I wanted. This is a very creative woman who listens with her heart. She also does fantastic roses and is very talented in lots of other endeavors. I just love this lady! Though going through some trials of her own lately, she takes the time out to do something like this: painting a little tool box for ME! She is an exceptional chick.

Not only the tool box but a hand painted hanging ornament, a fruity tea light and some of her beautiful clay roses. You really need to check her out or get in touch with her so she can make you some special order clay roses for embellishing your crafts.


  1. Hi, Connie,
    Lorena is a sweet lady. I always enjoy visiting her blog. She certainly gifted you with some lovely items! Congratulations, I know you will appreciate and enjoy them so much. Vicki

  4. Hi Connie, that was such a thoughtful gift and sooo pretty. Her painting is beautiful and her heart is BIG. You so deserve it.
    I would love to see you sometime if you ever do come this way next year for the markets.

  5. Well happy birthday. You do have some beautiful things there. Be sure and show us how you put it to use. I will pop over and visit.

  6. Hello chickadee
    What a charming and beautiful present for you! What a sweet friend. I am having a welcome fall party on Tuesday to celebrate the first day of fall and I'd love it if you joined in. You can read about it on my blog.

  7. Hi Connie, How sweet of Lorena to send you this pretty gift. Her painted roses are just beautiful! Loved your PS post this week, those deserts look yummy. I also loved you camping pics, your camper looks so pretty in pink. Loved your craft room too, I never thought to look for a mouse pad on ebay. I always get the made up at Walmart using a picture from my files. Usually my sweet Angel.

    Bless you, Shirl
