Random Act of Kindness Challenge 2016 #2

Someone asked me recently to let her know if I ever put anything
in my etsy shop that had a violet pattern on it.  Well, I just
happened to come across a few pieces and thought I'd just
surprise her by mailing this sweet little soap dish to her.

I don't know her personally but we've had a little contact 
online and I know her brother pretty well.
And fortunately, I even had her mailing address,
so that was easy!  




This little vintage piece is hand painted and signed by the artist.
I thought it was beautiful!



Here it is all packed up and ready to go!
I hope it makes her day.
I mean, who doesn't like to get surprises in the mail? 

I'm linking up with Manu for her RAK Challenge.

    1. I hope so! I had a lot of fun sending it....but that's the way it goes, right?
      It's more of a blessing to give than to get. :)

  8. So pretty and delicate. She will adore it. A RAK coming by mail is super special.

    I've been sick most of the week, so didn't get out to do my RAK.....but just when I was thinking about it...a RAK was done for me....so mine this week is in reverse....

  13. Hi Betsy - what a great idea and I'm sure she'll love it. I was given three hand-painted knapkins from the Victorian era, which I had framed, one has violets on .. and they are so delicate - I've always loved them.

    What a wonderful act of Random Kindness .. I'm sure she'll love it ... Happy weekend - and cheers Hilary
