An Wondrous Gift from Minnesota—Wednesday, May 9, 2018

“The whole earth was brimming sunshine that morning.  She tripped along, the clear sky pouring liquid blue into her soul.”-  Theodore Dreiser, Sister Carrie

After a walk down the long lane to the mailbox, I opened the little door to the mailbox and found a package sitting there waiting for me.

Looking at the return address I realized it had come all the way from Minnesota…Connie, from the Far Side of Fifty blog

Had a fun wee contest on the leaving of winter in her neck of the woods.  She actually had two contests.

Anyway I won one  and what an amazing prize I received

A beautiful hand-created card

And this amazing wood carving of a darling little house (I can even put a light in the back to light up the windows).

Craving wood is an amazing art…to look at a piece of wood and ‘see’ what it is trying to tell you what it wants to be—then tiny shaving, by tiny bit being able to bring the wood to into life as a new object is wonderful.

Thank you so much, Connie!
