the princess and the t
Can the princess rest upon a stack of fabric from Sharon?
Once upon a time in blogland, there was a Popcorn Princess and a Tinkerer, and even though the friends lived on opposite coasts of the country and had never met in person, the two felt very much like neighbors.
As you may have experienced yourself, there are many blogging connections that transform into real friendships. Sharon, the popcorn-loving mompreneur from My Life at Pansy Cottage & Garden, and I often remark that we feel like neighbors. We've shared long phone calls, each have young boys, reward ourselves with popcorn ... So when Sharon told me she was clearing out some of her fabric stash and asked if I would want any, I said sure -- it seemed like saying yes to a cup of sugar.
However, when the FedEx truck delivered a heavy box to my doorstep, I knew this was more than a cup of sugar (and more like the 10 lb. bag)!
Sharon packed the box with stacks of fabric and goodies (like clothespins !) and even included a gift card to Panera (for my birthday). Someday at some art event I know that Sharon and I will be laughing over coffee and muffins (and popcorn) and I'll be sure to treat and to give her a giant hug for what you'll see next:
How dreamy is this pillow!? This has got to be one of the most thoughtful presents I have ever received in my life.
Roses & Birds Collection
Sharon is the proprietress of Pansy Cottage & Garden by Sharon Hughes where she offers nearly two dozen collections of pillows, aprons and more, featuring cottage and French motifs (featured in May's Romantic Homes). Sharon not only sells online but participates in many shows and events, such as the Tell Me 'Bout the Good Ole Days Boutique this November 5th and 6th in Redlands, CA.
If you haven't visited Sharon's sweet and funny blog, it details her many adventures, whether that means prepping for Glitterfest or de-skunkifying her dog. Hope you'll pop over to visit Sharon at her blog. You can tell her "Tinker" sent you!
Lately it's been difficult for me to find the time to blog and I miss visiting everyone. If you have a moment, please take my poll about when you find time to blog. Thanks!
