Mutual Appreciation Society

To thank my friend Aimee for sewing a pretty apron for me, I sent her mugs from Henri Bendel.  I love these mugs -- they're made of bone-china, are the perfect size to drink from, and are beautifully decorated.

I was shocked this morning when scrolling through my Bloglovin list to see... me!  A picture of me.  On Aimee's blog.  That's a surreal experience.

Aimee says some wonderfully nice things.  My heart is fluttering.  Go check out her post (here).


  1. Thanks so much for your lovely comment, it made my day!
    This is so sweet - and the mug really pretty! :-)

    Have a great day,

  2. What a sweet story. Great mugs and great people. Happy Saturday!

  3. the nice things aimee said about you are soooo true!!!
    you are a gorgeous, very courageous person. I am very glad to have found your blog!

  4. You know what Ally-cat - when we first started 'chatting' you had a few followers and were slowly dipping your toes into this new world and I know you were so nervous about how you were going to be received. Well my sweet friend, this is yet more proof that you are so incredibly special and delightful and lovable!

    I so wish I could have met you on trip - but I'm starting to plan a trip to Florida and I'd then like to travel up to New York ... I think its almost doable! Now to earn the money to make it possible.

    Have a wonderful week

  5. Oh so good to read about good friendships around here. I love how ew get friends through blogger and to learn about so many intersting nice people and even about different cultures and countries. I love beauitful coffee mugs and these ones are really pretty!
    Also I loved your two Valentines Day posts :)
    Have a grat start in the week and thanks for your last comment!

  6. That's really cool! Isn't it such a fabulously neat feeling when you're going about your, la, la...and boom, all of a sudden you see your image pop up somewhere you weren't expecting it online. It always makes me smile and feel touched that someone opted to include me in their world.
