How Do You "Treat" Your Friends?

I treat mine with double chocolate brownies!

And fresh from the garden tians.

And fresh rosemary bread!!! I have a friend that is a horrible cook. She also does not read my blog! She had house guests coming for an overnight stay and was fretting terribly about how to feed them. So, I offered to make dinner for them. I dropped it off when the bread was still warm. She emailed me this morning telling me that her friends were terribly jealous that she had someone that would cook like this for her. I told her that I must have done a good job then!

This is the $3.95 lamp from my thrift store trip last week. I painted the metal parts and gave it a good cleaning.

This is the original shade that came with it. I just dusted it off and added some trim.

And this is the new shade I made for the Asian inspired lamp.

The Blog Tech is having another garage sale so I made a few small garden totems for him.

I found another owl light on ebay to match the one I already have! Now I need to find a spot to display them.

I made two batches so have a few brownies on me!

Your friend is really lucky to have You as a friend :-) After reading Your blog for some time now I´m convinced that the dinner was delicious. The bread in itself is delicious!

I really like the asian lamp! The dark shade makes the blue-white shine.

I think that you are the most thoughtful neighbor I've ever heard of, and most definitely more thoughtful than any I have around here. We quit having our block party because it got down to the same few couples year after year, which is rather sad.

It is really something that you found a matching owl! Quite magical, really. .

Good things happen to you, because you do such nice things for others.
