Kindred Spirits

This will be my last post before Christmas and I thought the gift of  special friends seemed perfect to share. This morning I received a visit from my lovely friend Gaye who arrived with a surprise gift for me from another friend of mine who is one of Gaye's family. She had recently been on an overseas trip to Canada and  was also lucky enough to visit Prince Edward Island. Those of you who know me well will already know I am a huge "Anne" fan and the "Anne of Green Gables" books were amongst my favourite growing up. It is on my 'dream' list to visit there one day. Well inside my little gift bag was this...

The sweetest little minature porcelain "Anne" doll, a "Kindred Spirit" book mark and post card and a post card which features Anne's bedroom as described in the books by the Author Lucy Maud Montgomery. The little doll and the painting on the bookmark and post card were commissioned by the Authors family to celebrate "Anne's" 100th birthday. My friend wrote of the wonderful experience on PEI on one of the postcards even relating how they had "raspberry cordial" which you will understand if you are a fan.
To say I was touched was an understatement....I think there might have even been a little tear ( I am such a sop). To think one friend would think of me and that the other would come down and surprise me with it was so beautiful. True Kindred Spirits. Thank you and huge hugs to you both.

So I would like to take this opportunity to say to all my Kindred Spirits out there in blogland a very heartfelt thank you for your kindness, affection, encouragement and support throughout 2012. The way you have embraced me and my art continues to touch my heart.
I WISH YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES ARE VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
FULL OF BLESSINGS AND LOVE
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you
And the pure light within guide you on.
Namaste,
Michelle xxx
