I think I'm in seriously "like" with my letter-carrier..well, package carrier..
He brought me some wonderful things from family, friends and fellow blogger-friends!
The first book, The Magic of Sisters, was sent to me and to my 2 sisters by our wonderfully thoughtful niece- she saw the book and though of the 3 of us- her Mom, Kathy and Gerri and I. What a sweetie!
Apronisms and The Apron Book was a gift from my sister Kathy - and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the both of them! The Apronisms is a small one that I can keep in my purse..and the big one? Well, I have wanted that for sometime!
This beautiful old book, a Russian Fairytale, was my winnings from a contest at a great artistic blogger's blog, Artsy-Craftsy Merchant (http://alexalett.blogspot.com/)
Beautiful buttons, French ribbon, flowers and a hand-made snowman creation! Yay me! I Won!!
Thanks, Alexa, they are even more beautiful "in person"...
And, even more....Betty (http://www.joyinourlives.blogspot.com/) arranged this darling painted spoon purchase from Laurie at http://www.lauriescharmingdesigns.blogspot.com/ as a surprise for me...and Yes! I was surprised...especially when I saw that the talented, very thoughtful, generous and good-blogging-buddy, Laurie has ADDED one of her "bent silverware" easels with a beautiful nest magnet for me...Wow..wowzer..wowzie..woohoo..
This is a close up (sort of) of the great quilt Rachael and Jeff gave me (made by Rachael's Mom) - I wanted to show you the teensy-tiny squares! It's back-lit because I have it hanging in my art-room window. Pretty, huh?!
OK, so one last cute find- thrifting today, I spotted these cute little red-bottomed ice cream dishes..they're really small (good for ONE scoop..) but cute as can be - especially for $.75 each!
So, there's my thank you's, my bargain's and my sincere appreciation for my letter carrier...
Oh yeah, and my family, friends and blogging buddies, too!
Thank you. thankyouverymuch.
