It was a really sweet post...
I was still surprised when some time after that, Patti at Raspberry Lane e-mailed me and told me she wanted to make a little angel for Riley.
Some time passed and Patti e-mailed me again asking about hair and eye color of all the Grandlittles, and a few days ago a box arrived.
In the box was a treasure for each girl. Made by hand and capturing the sweet innocence of childhood, Patti sent a garden angel for each of our granddaughters.
Mr. Jenny and I were in awe. What lovely craftsmenship. What a thoughtful and kind thing to do. Indeed, we felt like we had been blessed.
To thank Patti (heaven knows she wouldn't want me to sew her anything...ahem) I thought I'd do a little giveaway featuring her work.
Although there are no garden angels on her website at this time, I was charmed by these sweet little prim carrots.
The winner of this giveaway will receive three carrots ... (one for each of my own personal garden angels)...
I will draw the winner of the giveaway on Sunday evening, July 31.

Thanks Patti! You are a gem! These little angels make me smile every morning! And see that sweet little bag on the right? It is my own personal "Relaxation corn sack"! You can freeze it or warm it and it soothes sore and tired muscles. I'm going to try it on my fingers...since I do tend to go on and on a little bit.
