Dominique

Time and thoughtfulness...
 ...create gifts from the heart that will be cherished, forever.
Over two years ago I met a wonderful woman in France via blogging.
She has been a constant and loyal blogging companion.
We've never met in person, although I feel like we have...
I hope to change that someday.

She handcrafted this beautiful bag for my crocheting projects.
Customized in the colors I love. 
Hmmmm...here's a thought: the colors are the colors of our three countries:
USA, France, Norway.
I know - not exactly the flag blue, but my favorite blue nonetheless. :-)
 We are in the midst of traveling via car and this has been my constant companion.
The heart, with a bell inside, was included in the package.
Note the colors. :-)
This heart made my heart skip a beat.
I collect hanging hearts at my kitchen window.
They are all associated with a special memory.
Did she know this or was it serendipitous?

Thank you Domi, from the bottom of my heart!!!

 P.S. Domi makes so many amazing things
 and always with a sense of humor; she can be visited here.

  2. Le cœur, c'est un hasard, qui tombe bien visiblement. Je n'avais pas noté que tu collectionnais les cœurs :( Eh bien je suis contente que cela te fasse plaisir.
    Merci pour cet article de ton blog dédié à ces petites choses. Notre amitié virtuelle se renforce ! Et un jour elle ne sera plus que virtuelle :)

    Bonnes vacances avec la laine et le crochet !!!
