Delights for Eyeballs

 The sun is shining! Yahoo!  
On another note (get it?) I bought these lovely CK cards at one of my favorite gift shops.  We just don't get enough Cath Kidston in the United States of America.  

 And my garden angel friend Catherine sent me this amazing magazine that we Americans DO NOT have.  It's gorgeous!  The pages are thick, the pictures are glorious and the stories are wonderful!

 Ever the Willows hostess, she sent a Mole card.  Oh Mole!  I love you so!  Badger is still nervous about flying to Ireland.  Soon, off he'll go.  
 I bought a poppy, but because it is supposed to snow this week (sadness) I am keeping this beauty inside until Mother's Day.

 Lizzy and Sam come to see us on Sundays!
 Now, I am showing you Aria's third birthday presents.  Her mommy might see them before we take them to her house Friday, but they are so cute!  I wanted to share them with YOU first!

 Isn't this fairy doll from Magic Cabin adorable?  I know Aria will like having a fairy.
 She came with a forest friend, boots, a purse and a cushy hat!  Granny loves her!  I hope Aria does!
 Even though I did a good bit of snow whining, we DO have daffodils!  Yay!
My sweet neighbor places little gnomes in my garden and then I come upon them as I'm looking for new growth.  Isn't she sweet?
Oh, I had a very busy weekend and this week is going to be full, too.  That's okay.
I feel loved by our BIG God, attended to in a wonderful way, and blessed with goodness.
I hope your week is fresh and sweet.  I hope someone leaves a May Day treat on your doorstep.

What lovely gifts for your girl! Love those dress up items. My girls would have loved them. Do they make them for grown- ups?....LOL :) Kit

Your neighbor is SUCH a doll! How sweet to leave you anonymous gnomes :) How nice to have a neighbor who knows you and loves you. I couldn't help noticing one of the articles on the cover of that magazine you showed. "Go on an information diet." What an idea! We do seem to glut ourselves on info, being online. I imagine a purge, a good diet, might feel good. I stopped reading any online news for a month or so once, and it was very nice.

Blessings to you, dear, as you endure more snow. I'm sorry. Adam says you could move here to coastal NC, but I told him you have all your grands there near you.

Fairies, gnomes and mole! A fun-filled post!
The fairy doll is extraordinary. You are blessed with a good neighbor and you are a blessing to all your online neighbors as well.
Spring WILL come to stay eventually. Looking forward to getting outside and cleaning up after the long winter!

Love the Cath Kidston notecards. She does do such cheery items doesn't she.

Enjoy the birthday party - the fairy is perfect!

Lovely pressies for Aria I am sure she will love them. We have sunshine and signs of Spring here but still cold. I got Good magazine from Catherine too - what a treat.

Another happy post, so good to visit you PP! :) xxx

Catherine said...

Here I am...waving & jumping..I was just about to pop in when I saw your knew post float through my dashboard. So glad that the magazine arrived happily.
We don't get anywhere enough Cath Kidston stuff here in our land down under. Her style is so fresh & bright & nostalgic & cheery all at once...don't you think? What fun having a gnome friendly neighbour. We were sitting in Lucy this evening as the sun went down & had just closed the door when we heard an indignant Charlie "knocking" at the door..Margaret didn't send him from next door, he comes all by himself ; ) It's nice having a borrowed cat.
I am very glad that you have daffodils & snippets of spring & sunshine! Have a wonderful week sweet friend. Much love Catherine x0x0x

Surprise gnomes in your garden, that is just so sweet Miss Pom Pom.
What a delightful thing to find among the flowers in your garden. Snow coming ???? Mother Nature is misbehaving. We are having perfect weather over here, it is simply divine xo

Farm Girl said...

What a wonderful neighbor. I think this week will be busy just because. More snow!!! We are supposed to have record highs. I have already had to run the air conditioning. I will trade gladly.
I love all of your gifts they look like spring. Enjoy all of your amazing babies this week.

Nana Go-Go said...

Those gifts are adorable. I know a 4-year-old here who would love the fairy doll.
Spring has sprung here but it's still cold for this time of year.I like the look of that magazine.

Nancy McCarroll said...

Aria will love the fairy doll. And you found an outfit for Aria, please once she opens her presents.

You reminded me of MayDay. We have two special neighbours that I will think of something to leave on their doorsteps.

Lovely, uplifting post, Pom! I hope it's a good week with plenty of sunshine and not so much snow. Almost summertime!


Brad M said...

So wonderful! Aria WILL love the lovely fairy doll, without a doubt! I love you so much an can't wait to see you this weekend!

Sara said...

Hello Pom Pom! What lovely treats you've shared with us in this post. I love your neighbor for placing little gnomes where you will find them! That magazine looks very wonderful indeed. I hope you are having a good week! Blessings to you and your family.

oh yes, i need a mindfulness diet . . . it's so easy to get caught up in just about everything EXCEPT for the current moment~!

your neighbor is obviously great fun. love the idea of hiding goodies in a friend's yard to be found as one enjoys the garden.

Beautiful poppy! I love those flowers so much. Why don't I see them more here? And that fairy doll is the cutest!!!

Gumbo Lily said...

I have those same CK notecards. I found mine on Amazon. Love them.

It's so fun to find children's toys and things around the house, isn't it? Cute elfie doll.
