Friendship-Friendship, Just The Perfect Friendship...



Don't you think these two little Cutie Putooties could be Ethel and Lucy when they grow up?? This is one of my all time favorite pieces of clipart... Two little girlfriends who most obviously LOVE to get into all kinds of mischief together. Oh you know nothing bad just kinda "what do you think would happen if we..." sorta thing. :)



I don't know about you but in the just over the year that I have been a member of Bloglandia I have met so many wonderful people and been blessed with some of the best friendships!! One of these Bloglandian friends is mi "Hermanita" (little sister) Renate of "Put a little magic in your life". Renate lives in Germany which by all accounting is a loooooong way from Mexico. :( It's not impossible (because nothing is) but there is a high degree of probability that we will not be standing behind a fish bowl with the look of "well we only wanted to see what... looks on our faces. Instead we rely on the magic of the ethernet to share our escapades. It didn't take Renate long to learn that I live to Junk. I mean who doesn't??? I also live in a country where flea markets and "junkin" is not a happening thing. Heck you can't even find yard sales here :( . Renate on the other hand lives in a country that has amazing flea markets full of wonderful vintage "junk" Sooooooooo on Sundays when she and Max go to the flea markets she takes me along vicariously to wonder... "what do you think we could do with this?? Heck what do you think THIS is??" :)



When LW and I got to Joe and Mette's I found this most amazing parcel from Renate waiting for me. She had lovingly sent some of her flea market stash to share with me!!! YEAH!!! She also sent a lovely giveaway I won. Look down in the right corner. There are to medallions she made out of resin and a mermaid charm. I'm sorry I need to go back to "photos for blogs 101" cuz the picture of the medallions was unbelievably horrendous and the rest of these aren't much better :)



There are watch faces and watch cases, and watch guts oh my!! Bags of blue and green glass beads.



Look tiny little mermaid charms inside that watch case. A cool tin box. I love small little containers and boxes of any size :) More strings of beads. Down in the left corner are two of her precious beach rock focals. Those are the rocks she collects when she goes to Italy on holiday!! Ohhhh and 3 vintage pins,


Like I said unlike Ethel and Lucy we can't walk into each others back doors with a YOOOOOOHOOOOO any coffee???? But we are still magnificent friends who manage to get into a bit of mischief even over the ethernet!!!! ;) Thank you dear friend for all these wonderful treasures and for carrying me along in your back pocket when you are a junkin!!
Have a most audacious today or tomorrow depending on where in the world you are p;)

What a lovely surprise for you! I too am always amazed by the goodies that Renate picks up at the flea markets and love taking a vicarious trip with her. I think I can see you now picking up little bits from this parcel and turning them over and contemplating what they might become. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you do with them. It will be special! Hugs my friend, LeAnn

Yes you're right...Renate is a super-incredible blogland friend. And how sweet of her to pack up some of her flea market finds and sent them to you along you. I am always amazed at the generosity that I constantly witness. I, too, go along for the ride when Renate hits the German flea markets! :-) Thanks for sharing your latest treasures.
