When I started this blog I had NO idea of all the lovely people I would come to know via the blogging world. Sometimes you get a lovely little comment correspondance on the go, and sometimes you get this incredibble kindness where someone sends you something that relates to your blog. It's happened a few times now and I can't express how touched I am by these sweet gestures.
A little while back I posted a comment over at Such life in the tropics about how much I would love to swim with a sea turtle, and just the other day I received this lovely decorated envelope containing a fine art print of a mermaid diving with a sea turtle! How sweet is that?!!

Then another time I left a comment over at Yes and Amen after she wrote a post about a hummingbird nest in her garden. I am in awe of hummingbird nests... I think they're like something straight out of a fairy book and I would love to see one for real. I've heard they're made from down, lichen and spiderweb - how amazing is that? Well, a few days ago I received a box with a gorgeous set of cards from her marvellous photo collection. I've written a post about them before and you should seriously pop over to her Etsy shop and have a look. The images are just irresistable. And then I found a little box of baking cups?? Well, I thougth it was sweet because I actually really love baking. BUT... what did I find well protected inside the little box of baking cups? A hummingbird nest!!! A real itsy bitsy hummingbird nest. My goodness... I cannot believe how teensy it is. And it truly IS a fairy creation. You can see bits of cotton down and tiny snippets of spiderweb holding it together. It's magical... I'm having a hard time figuring just how tiny the eggs must be.
To both of you I can't express how moved I am at your sweet thoughtfulness and I'm so delighted to have met you in the bloggersphere.
I'm without my proper camera for the moment, so instead of sharing an image of these fine treasures I'm sharing a favorite pic from each blog.
