A Surprise Gift

Last week I received a very unexpected surprise from Kim
Kim has undertaken a world-wide venture to celebrate her 60th birthday this year
She sent out 60 gifts to 60 people and I was included
Above is a card of an oil on porcelain entitled 'Ziva' painted by Kim (McCool) herself

The gifts......a cushion, card, beading kit, fabric and thread

Thank you Kim for these absolutely delightful unexpected gifts......they made my day!!!

I hope you had the Best Birthday with many, many more to come!!!

Happy Dzintra xo

Cik interesanta ideja, savā jubilejā apdāvināt citus! Un cik gadu, tik dāvanu! Vispār jau Tu saņēmi pat vairākas dāvanas. Varēsi arī pati pagatavot dāvaniņu kādam tālāk no auduma un diedziņiem.
Ja es gribētu savā nākamajā apaļajā jubilejā apdāvināt, tad man jau būtu jāsāk ar dāvanu gatavošanu...

What a lovely way to celebrate a milestone birthday! I will be celebrating that number in just over a year, and maybe I should do something as such. Counting our blessings one person at a time! HAPPY DAY dearest!

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
