Mud Pie for the Soul and other kind treats

It's been a hard, utterly depressing week for me since I lost my favorite person, my darling Grandma last Monday. She is a truly wonderful soul and I will miss her joyful spirit, her laughter and her thoughtful, caring ways.

My spirit got lifted when these sweet, comforting treats arrived in the mail! Such lovely treats for the soul.

 

A sweet treat from Elea of Nostalgia Organics! The scent of delicious, peppermint and chocolate handmade soap is just what my poor, tired little soul needs. Thank you so much Elea. You are an angel!



A sweet, mini bunting from my swap ornament partner Tracey of Polka Dot Daze. Thank you Tracey! This ornament is just the perfect reminder to celebrate all of life's big and small moments  because, umm...life is too short!



A sleepy winter girl beanie doll from Sarah of Threaded Basil that I won from her Sew Mama Sew Giveaway.  Thank you Sarah! Ahhh... in the midst of winter and darkness, one must not forget to nurture one's inner child.

  1. Lovely little gifts in the mail... so sorry to hear of your loss. It is never easy and no one can say anything really to make you feel better, but I hope that it is not too painful for you.
