Spring Has Sprung! Gifts Galore! Oh Happy Days!!!

It's Grateful Thursday and I have SO MUCH to be grateful for! The weather here in our neck of the woods is sunny and warm. I go to work wearing a light weight cotton sweater, no jacket needed even after work at six pm. My peach tree is starting to bloom, buds have popped out all over it's limbs... the grapefruit tree is laden down with fruit...
I replanted this jade from a huge plant raised and nurtured by my Aunt Mimi...not sure where the gigantic plant went when she/they moved to assisted living care...I think my cousin Judy must have taken it to her garden, as she by far has the greenest thumb in our family...
my daffodils are in full bloom now...
and goodies arrived this past week from abroad...her name is Joss and she lives in London. She made this ATC for me in our ABC ATC Blog swap. Everyone there referred to them as my "magic fingers" with fabric! How sweet is that? Thank you Joss. She her blog here.
She also sent a few other cards of interest to me...
I love the art and fabrics on both...
and on a different day she sent me this wonderful UK magazine on paper craft! You are ever so good to me!
Thank you again...I am ever so grateful for your gifts and art...
Also this week I am grateful for my dear friend Patty, who came to town to get her car fixed and then took ME to lunch (and would not let me pay!) What's a gal to do? Thank you Patty. I love and treasure our time together.
And I am grateful to my DH for holding my feet while being cut upon last Friday...and being there to change my bandages every day since. What would I do with out YOU? It's good to be grateful.
What are you grateful for today?
