I received a beautiful package a couple of days ago that brought a genuine smile to my face even before I opened it. Doesn’t this hand-decorated envelope make you smile?
Dee enclosed gorgeous handmade black and white photo notecards and a lovely letter that I will cherish. She empathizes with the loss of a sister, as she lost her own beloved sister many years ago. Her letter was wrapped in hugs and hearts. Here are the photos. I’ve received photos from Dee before. Whenever I discover she’s my partner in a swap, I delightfully–and a little impatiently–anticipate what I know will be a lovely package. She never disappoints!
Dee added a little color to “Home by the Bay” below. She also sent the color version of this photo. The home has character and history. I can just imagine the stories!
My partner will receive three photo notecards as well. If you’ve been following my blog, you should recognize “Sweet Beloved” from the previous post. I had little intention of sending it, but it really tugged at my heart.
I had a little fun deciding which ones to send. I solicited opinions from my hubby and son. My hubby is partial to black and white photos, so he loves them. My son, I learned, prefers color. He doesn’t like any of these! Oh well! I can’t please everyone. Hopefully, my partner will enjoy them!
I can’t say I prefer one or the other, but there’s something about black and white photos that I really like. They’re classic, appealing–stunning really.
