Having good neighbours is a special thing – you become a unique little tribe. Neighbours look out for one another, keep an eye on your home when you’re not around, pop over for a tea, talk about the weather, and share yard advice! There are four homes at the end of our lane and we all get along great! We have summer BBQ’s together and over the holidays we all gather around the Christmas tree to share a festive drink (or two) and some nibbles. During the warmer months, when Edna would see me putzin’ in my garden, she’d stroll on over and we’d have a good gab. Often we’d sit in the lawn chairs and enjoy a glass of wine together. She’d give me tips about planting garlic in the fall, I’d share my ideas for new flower beds. We’d just sit and enjoy a break in the sunshine, chatting away. Edna wasn’t just a neighbour – she became someone dear to my heart and I’ll sure miss her.
I’m not going to lie, making this card for Edna’s family wasn’t easy, but I’m so glad we have stamps, ink and paper to create something from our heart, to share our love and thoughts with others.
Thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you were inspired by today’s project and that you’ll visit again soon!
