Lovely surprises

Life is truly full of surprises, and sometimes they are very nice!  This arrived in the post for me – a beautiful key fob from a giveaway Judy Hamid did on her blog I read, I sewed, I crocheted.  She currently has a very interesting post about London, if you’d like a little behind-the-scenes tour.

Thank you Judy!  I will soon have a new set of keys, and what better to put on my keyring?  Although it seems too pretty for everyday use.  Perhaps it would be better for a shed key, decoratively displayed?

And here’s an unusual sight that greeted us a few days ago:

I’m assuming that someone was having fun up in the air.  It reminded me a little bit of the Cole Porter song, “I get a kick out of you” – “Flying too high with some guy in the sky / is my idea of nothing to do / But I get a kick out of you.”

And not long ago, I was delighted and surprised to see what looked like a flock of tiny dogs in the park:

In fact it was Mama, Papa, and their three pups, who were just about as big as their parents.  Very funny to see, and quite a job for their minder!

I wish you all a great weekend, full of only pleasant surprises.



  1. That fob was quite a nice surprise, along with others….some days are just diamonds, aren’t they? ❤

  2. What a delightful trio! The key fob is lovely, as is the paper it came wrapped in if that’s it underneath. The contrails are most unusual, I’ve never seen them like that before, but I have seen flocks of little dogs of the sort you pictured in the park, and I agree it makes for a most amusing spectacle. Here’s to more pleasant surprises! 🙂

  3. I love how Stacy put it. Some days are just diamonds. Wishing you a big, sparkling pile of diamond days.

  4. Lots of happy photos! A lovely gift, too! Enjoy your weekend! xo

  5. what a lovely thought .. to give away a beautiful key fob such as that. It’s really pretty and as you’ve said, it is great timing for a new set of keys. 🙂

  6. I think you may be on to something when you suggest that those circles were made by a Cole Porter fan, Christine.
