Love One Another

A package arrived for me today from the NETHERLANDS!!
I was so excited to see "U.S.A" under my address. :)
It was an envelope full of well-wishes and gifts from my dear blogger friend,
Saskia, at Join My Joy. :)
Please check out her lovely blog...
Right now, she is the midst of some Parisian Adventures!! :)
I went to work finding just the right places for some of my new treasures...
And for my "vlaggenlijn." :)
Here?? On my Cognac poster?
With a "drop of sunlight in a glass."
I think we'll head out to the porch...
I think I like it!! :)
And it kinda goes with the opposite wall...
and the pennants my Dad gave us. :)
This plaque used to hang in my Granddad's barn...
He passed away one year ago today.
I miss him so much...
It meant a lot to me to adorn and photograph this treasured keepsake today, of all days. 

1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest is

Saskia, thank you so much for my delightful gifts.
They came on the perfect day to offer a little cheer
and a little bit of blogger LOVE!!
