Gorgeous Goodies

A couple weeks ago, I left a comment on my friend Cindy’s blog. She was having a giveaway, but what I was more interested in were the gorgeous photos her husband Mark took. They live in northern California and he took several photos of the stunning valley fog that looked like he was above the clouds.

Cindy and Mark appreciated the fact that I paid more attention to his photos than her freebies. To be honest, I didn’t want any freebies. I love taking pictures, so I wanted them to know how impressed I was with those amazing photos.

To express their appreciation, they sent me a surprise package containing some gorgeous goodies.

Mark makes beautiful fused glass items, including bowls, plates and platters, even jewelry. And they sent me this beautiful bowl! It has a cool basketweave pattern in a warm amber color.

They also sent me this stunning necklace. It’s in colors I love so I will likely be wearing this ALL.THE.TIME!

Oh yeah, I almost forget, Cindy couldn’t resist putting some fabric in the package that she knew I would love. Maybe she thought the fused glass items needed more padding, so a little chocolate lollipop would do the trick.

Thank you so much, Cindy and Mark! I cherish your kindness and generosity. I am so honored you shared your creative talents with me!
