Every now and then...

                                   Every now and then you get a gift that just blows you away..
                          
                           This piece of slate from the roof of an old cottage came all the way from Scotland....picked up from a pile by my best friend Trish while she was out walking by the sea with her daughter Jen....(yes Jen I love it !)
                        Buried in the bottom of her suitcase was one for her and one for me....cause thats just how it is with us....thats why I adore her (and lets be honest she knows I would have killed her if she hadn't got me one) 
                          Hope you all have a wonderful day....I just love reading the notes you leave me!
                   Be back next week !  Chrissy  xo
