A WEDNESDAY GIFT ON A THURSDAY

I got a Wednesday gift today. A Wednesday gift is a gift you give--or get, like me--for no reason other than the giver found something wonderful and wanted to share. My giver is Pam and the gift is this little bit of spring. It now sits in my kitchen window. I have wanted one of these little blooms for a long time. The photo doesn't do it justice, it looks real, even down to it's Iris beard.
Even the dirt looks real.
Why don't you start your own "Wednesday gift" tradition? It will brighten someone's life, I promise.

And thank you, Pam for being generous, not only with gifts but with your friendship, which I cherish.

Are you sure those flowers are artificial? I think you're pulling our legs.

What a great idea -- Wednesday gifts. Thank you for sharing that idea. Happy Spring!

I, too, love the Wednesday gifts. I have this one friend who gives them. I think she might be related to you... She might be the same one who blesses elbow skins...

I assure you that I now give Wednesday presents because they are the happiest of all.

I've never heard of Wed. gifts! I think that I will have to start giving myself Wed. gifts if no one else does!


I will look for any excuse to reward myself.... :)

I love iris and these looked so real, I wondered why they were blooming so early in the year. The only trouble with iris is that they don't bloom all summer long. This way you have a bit of spring and early summer all year long to cheer you. Another thing to cheer you is that Wednesday gifts are given out of love, not for any particular occasion, so whenever you look at your window, it will just remind you how much you are loved.
