Meet Lizzie

Hello Friends!

For me, the best part of blogging is meeting new friends.  In the past several months I have forged friendships with men and women from all around the world.  People who I would never meet in any other way.  
Today, I would like to introduce you to my friend Lizzie.  She writes The Pea Pod from her home in Gloucestershire, United Kingdom.  Lizzie was my first friend from the UK. 

She brings to The Pea Pod her fabulous sense of humor, which I find so endearing.  Lizzie is always gracious when she has to educate this ill informed American the meaning of such terms as Car Boot Sale.

Lizzie is also a talented artist.  Her work is whimsical, colorful, and fun.  Recently, she sent me some of her beautiful work.  For months, I have enjoyed her Clothespin People.  I was so excited to receive one of these sweet little gems.

How can you not smile when you look at something so sweet?  She also sent me an adorable hand stitched ornament and a brightly painted magnet.  

I hope you will pop over and say hello to Lizzie.  Tell her La sent you.  
I will be linking this to Mosaic Monday
