More Gifts For Me!!!

Hello Dear Ones, and when I say "Dear Ones" I really mean that! Again I am just brought to tears that someone would think of me enough to send me a gift!
I received a package on my doorstep and jumped for joy! What in the world could this be? I hadn't ordered anything, it wasn't my birthday or even Christmas time!
Well, look at the return address! It's from my sweet blog friend, Jan at http://fynajanpoe.blogspot.com/. She has a delightful blog and runs a wonderful antique shop! Pop on over and visit her ~ you'll have a great time! Oh, I've just drooled looking at all the treasures in her shop. Wish I lived closer to her ~ I be popping in and spending some of Mr. Precious' money!
I ran to the kitchen to open my package! I can only open packages in the kitchen ~ well, that's where my knives are!! Oh, look at the bubble wrap! I just love this wonderful popping material! I'll put it away for now, gotta see what it's holding.

Oh, look! It's a wonderful little needlework piece of a little lady playing 'Note Songs' on the piano!! Just like (well, almost just like) my little graphic at the end of each of my posts! Oh, my heart is skipping beats again! This is just the sweetest thing!

Take a closer look at the precious vintage piece. I can tell it's very old and just to think someone of long ago made this with her little fingers never knowing it would end up with me! Look at her little eyelashes and the combs in her hair!

Now, where in the world am I going to put my new precious treasure!? She looks beautiful on this lace, doesn't she? But, no not here, where shall I put her? hummmmm...
Oh, joy! Oh devine placement! My piano is the perfect spot ~ just the place I play my little Note Songs! I feel so humble to receive this precious priceless treasure from Jan!! I will keep this forever and ever and will always think of you, Dear Jan, when I glance up while playing my Note Songs. My dear friend gave this gift to me! Thank you so much again, Jan!


I am so truly blessed!


I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke, you've probably heard it before
But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
'Cause everyone listens when I start to sing
I'm so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud
So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music For giving it to me
Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk
She says I began to sing long before I could talk
And I've often wondered, how did it all start
Who found out that nothing can capture a heart
Like a melody can
Well, whoever it was, I'm a fan
So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
~ sung by Abba
