What kind of world is it when you thank someone for making you happy and in return, they crochet you a handbag and then fill it with the most glorious things? As incredible as it sounds, there is a world such as this and it is inhabited by angels like Rosamargarita. Lucky for me, I get to be a part of this wonderful world as well.
RosaM, as she is affectionately called by me, lives in a faraway land called Guadalajara in Mexico. Thanks to Blogland, we met over a basket weaving tutorial and since then, have been visiting each other regularly.
It was just another August evening when at La Tapatia and in a post not quite related to miniatures, RosaM decided to post some links to music so long gone, they actually made me crazy happy when I heard them. It was not unlike meeting a favourite aunt you haven't seen for 40 years.
3 days after her post, the 3 of us who left a comment on that post were told we had each won a prize. It was RosaM's way of celebrating 333 followers and a commemoration of something that happened 33 years ago. As far as I was concerned, this giveaway took the cake for being the most unusual.
RosaM made something special for our projects and I received mine on the 4th of October 2011. When I showed them to my dolls, Maya insisted that the hat and cardigan would go perfectly with her outfit. Baby can wear them when I outgrow the clothes, she told me, after all, blue is for boys, right?
I make this post to celebrate your Handbag of Glory.
If I may quote Edward Monkton, and for the benefit of my friends who will need a translation of what my rather dirty coaster is saying:
Such was the power of the
handbag of glory that
ladies wept when they saw it and
those who touched it
went straight to Heaven
Thank you, Rosamargarita.
