Most of us don't know each other, we wouldn't know each other if we passed in the street, we are in effect.....strangers. Yet I don't feel like we are. We feel like kindred spirits. You understand the joy of creating, the joy of sharing your achievements, with me! (oh and everyone else reading of course!)
Yes, you might not be popping over to mine for a cuppa and a chat, but it feels a bit like you do.
So what compels us to spend our time, lovingly making something....then give it away, to a stranger? The joy of making, the joy of sharing?
I've been pondering on this today......
as I opened my lovely, lovely, giveaway from Heather....thank you so much Sweetheart, it is BEAUTIFUL!
We share such a lot in our blogs, we try and keep things upbeat, but also share when things aren't so great. There's a lot of support out there, doesn't matter if its practical support you need, or a virtual hug.....it's there, never very far away.
I'm a very open, honest person in 'real' life, but I'm also very private. You will find me closing my curtains as soon as the lights need to be switched on. I don't like people peeking into my home as they walk by, ironic isn't it....after all I share my home on this blog!
I don't really understand it myself. What I do understand is how much this little space means to me...how much the 'chats' I have with you inspire me, make me smile.
This little garland is making me smile too, that someone would put their time, effort and their love of what they do into it....then give it to me. Who they don't know! It's amazing really isn't it, don't you think?
I've also been smiling at the sun shining on my fabric today...the colours have been wonderful.....I'm soaking those colours in, I really do think colours have a profound effect on me. My little garland is helping in my quest to create a colourful, calm and happy home. Thanks again Heather :) x
Talking of peeking...I've finished this today, will share soon...
Just a little peek.....
Thanks for visiting, and thanks for the 'chat'! You are all really, really good listeners!
