Luck, according to Webster's dictionary is,
"The seemingly chance happening of events that affect someone."  
Blessing, according to Webster’s dictionary is,
"Anything that gives happiness."

Lucky me received this super surprise in the mail this week from my friend Pam Eyre. She is a mixed media artist and an impeccable seamstress. I’ve been blessed with a friend like Pam. I’ve had the good fortune to have receive several items she has made. The latest is this adorable pin-keep. When I saw this pin-keep I commented to her that it reminded me of my mother. Unbeknownst to me Pam had decided that she was going to give the pink-keep to me.

Pam's message on the back of the tag was so beautiful it made me cry.
 She is one of the first friends I made in Blogland. When I was new to blogging she helped me by answering questions I had and giving me tips. Besides being a sweet friend Pam is a very talented lady. Her blog is Cloth to Creation, her posts show her beautiful and clever creations, recipes, and wonderful photography; did I mention Pam lives in Australia? I hope you visit her and say hello. She also has an Etsy Shop called Nest In The Attic.  To visit her shop and see all the amazing things she makes, click here 

I’m linking this to Pink Saturday. Please hop over to say hello to our hostess Beverly at How Sweet The Sound and visit some of the other P.S. participants. Who know what great friends you may meet.
Good luck and may your Pink Saturday be blessed.

Thank you Pam for being a friend and giving me happiness!
