Random Act Of Kindness...for those of you unsure what a RAOK is. And it has been a great week for me.
I came home today to find more packages in the mail box. Finally the RRs are here i thought. Well one is, but also a package from Pam Kellogg , chock full of goodies, mostly her vintage hand dyed laces, but also some of her painted dryer sheets and fractal images, which I love.
Thank you Pam. All these treasures will be put to good use. I love the vintage stuff that Pam tracks down. Most of it has been handmade by someone (last century!!) and to me just has a real feeling about it....someone sat and created these, just as I sit now and create away on my bits and pieces. They are a connection to the past, and an affinty with people whose husbands probably didn't 'get' why they made things either! But I can cherish and respect those handcrafters now, and maybe somehow, they will know that.
I am truely appreciative and grateful to you Pam, and Charlene, and Hideko, and Vanessa ( I know there will be others I have missed), all people who have sent me things just because. You are special people.
