Over the few years that I have been blogging I have been lucky to make connections with some really lovely like minded ladies.  I think it's interesting how you are drawn to blogs for whatever reason it may be, that although you haven't met in real life you know that you somehow you have similar characteristics, values and interests.  One lady that I have enjoyed getting to know through blogging is Ally.  She lives in one of my favourite states of Australia, Tasmania and takes the most amazing macro photographs that one day I hope to be able to do, lots of practice is required. Last week I found in my letter box a parcel addressed to me, what a lovely surprise, and inside was a present wrapped in brown paper and string along with a card made of one of Ally's beautiful macro photos.  I took some photos and then unwrapped the parcel to find some sweet flower earrings and fabric covered buttons.  Thank you so much Ally for your thoughtful, kind and beautiful words and gifts, I look forward to being able to using them both. If you haven't visited Ally's blog before it's worth a visit, enjoy and admire her macro photography, they really are dreamy.

  6. The un thought about rewards of blogging and connecting with other all around the world...I guess like when our mums would have penned friends they had never met ...just the communication moved so much slower. Glad you have been spoilt. xx
