Rarely am I without words, but I am speechless. Look at this box of Wonderful that Sweet Karen from A musements sent to me. I am just amazed these are the most darling little slippers you have ever seen. I just love them. A while back I started corresponding with Karen and asked about her slippers........ Well, who knew they were this precious. And I know you are all dying over that little brown pair, Oh I love, love, love them. They are just so sweet. They have all these little lacy things and embellishments on them. Oh Karen you are so talented. I originally wanted them to give some for gifts, but, I am sorry I just don't think I can part with them. I feel so fortunate to have met Karen on the blog and so many other sweet people, I am constantly amazed at the generosity of people and such sweet spirits. But, you have got to see these little darlings.

I must tell you how I came to get these goodies. When I was talking with Karen she mentioned that her mother was originally from Alabama and there were a few Southern staples like pear preserves and the like that she could not get in Oregon, so I gathered her up a box of goodies and sent it about as far away as I could to Oregon.......Where is Oregon, is that near Alaska????

Anyway lucky me I am just loving these little cuties, and as if that was not enough, she also sent some other goodies, lots of keys, and watch faces and tokens, and little message bottles, also these cool little pictures with mica, I hesitate to show those, hence the copycat is looking.......but I love those. This is some great junk. And lulu I know I usually share stuff with you but, I don't know this stuff is good......

I just can hardly contain myself, so selfless and sweet of Karen, I'll bet she is like this all the time. Anyway I gotta get busy making her something out of this good stuff. Thank you Karen and I feel so fortunate to have met you. Cheers, Lauri

Did I forget to mention that I have been trying to figure out how to get these little babies on for the last hour.......ughhhhhhh

Look at the loot!!! And you didn't even have to use a gun! Karen is one of the most talented women out there. I have 1, read that, One of her shoes and it has a special place in my office. I think she is truly unique, not only in her art but in her fantastic personality. Aren't we glad we started blogging?
You are going to get so spoiled I'll have to start keeping you outdoors, my delicious little ham!

Very nice. How thoughtful some of these blogger are! That was just the sweetest thing for her to do.

Now look what you've gone and done Lauri... everyone will EXPECT me to be nice and sweet and then what a surprise when they REALLY get a load of me, right?! I am so pleased that you liked the slippies, but you really didn't describe what great lengths YOU went to, to get Mama Keebler Wedding cookies, and the most incredible pear preserves!!! And a fabulous "junk necklace" for me!!! And thank you for being so kind and not mentioning (so I'll tell on myself) that I was a tad late with the box...
I couldn't be any more fortunate than to somehow have gotten to know you and Lulu, Miss Deb (disgruntled about her ONE slipper...guess I'm gonna need to fix that now, aren't I?!) and everyone in that fabulous Southern crew... I love you all to bits; the kind you can't hang on a junk necklace ;-) Congratulations again, on you "Porch" article, you little Cover Girl, you!
