Today was just a perfect fall day here in Michigan. We are having our "Indian Summer" and the temperature is in the mid 70's. The leaves are finally turning color and it's just one of the most beautiful time of the year! And look at that sky, is that gorgeous or what?!?

Last week I recieved a convo from my friend Lori, who has two shops on Etsy, (fisheye, is a shop of incredible recycled items and fishlegs which is packed with vintage finds!) I always enjoy browsing through both shops! Anyway Lori asked for my address because she wanted to send me something. I was so excited wondering what it could be. So today I was sitting out on the deck drinking coffee with my daughter Natalie, (humblebea) enjoying a beautiful fall day and hubby brings me a little envelope that just arrived in the mail! Tucked neatly inside was a little box packed with these delicate little baskets and a little pottery pitcher and four mugs. Lori had been doing some cleaning and thought I might like to use them for my Mossies. She had found them in Mexico about twenty years ago! Wow! Natalie and I both were amazed at the items, but even more amazed at the kindness of friends that we have met on Etsy. There are so many people that we have never met, but feel like we have known for a lifetime. We seemed to be linked with a common thread, we like to create and enjoy other peoples creations. All of my Etsy friends are as addicted to treasury making as I am. In fact, it is the treasuries that has allowed me to meet so many fantastic people from around the world. Etsy is an amazing place and I wake up grateful every single day! So this afternoon I made Lori a little Mossie pin, using one of her little mugs, my way of saying thank-you!
