Simple beauty ~

When I see our dear mail lady pull into our driveway, I know she probably has something wonderful ~ and yes, it may not be for me....but I can always wish!!! Look at what she's brought recently....

Lori of My Faerie Window sent me the most precious gift ~ a few carefully chosen treasures that she KNEW I would love!!! The sweetest little baby dress, baby photograph, baby card and a bundle of gorgeous vintage lace.....I just had to share it all with you!!

Lori, thank you so very much dear friend, you are such an angel for doing this,
I absolutely love it all!

Another wonderful parcel arrived...I won a giveaway on Kim's blog, Gerushia's New World. She sent me three of her amazing art prints!! I just LOVE them Kim, thank you so much!! They are perfect inspiration for my studio ~

I wanted to share these simple buttons with you. I found them at the antique mall the other day for a mere $3.50. Some are a little dirty, some have fragments of thread remaining, even a few are broken. They have such a simple beauty ~

I hope your day is filled with simple beauty ~
hugs and love,

What lovely gifts. The baby dress is so sweet, it seems as though everytime we have one in our shop, it goes flying out the window.
The cards are absolutely lovely and what great inspiration! You are a lucky girl.

What is it about buttons that are so special! Boxes and bowls and jars of them tempt!
I like the "lacy" one in your stash the best. It stands out among the rest. What will Dawn do with it I wonder??

Love it all! Especially the buttons ..but I have a weakness for old buttons :-)

I am such a ditz..I purchased the Christmas glitter-shaker tutorial from you and I cannot for the life of me remember how I "saved" it on my computer - is it possible to re-send it to me? f not, that's OK, I will eventually find it - but if so, I'm at

Thanks Dawn and have a wonderful day!

Who needs therapy when you have friends who "Get You". What goes around, comes around Miz Dawn, it is so true. I love fun mail. As far as buttons,,,that "is" one of the best forms of therapy.
Merry Christmas!

SharDon Exclusives said...

Dawn, I just wanted to stop in and wish you a very very Merry Christmas, dear friend. I will be signing off here in a few hours but wanted to take the time to thank you for all of your love and encouragement during this blog year. I am headed up north for two-three weeks and am not sure if I will be able to look at all of your posts or not. Blessings to you and your lovely family during this time of the year when we celebrate our Saviors birth! Sent with much love,
p.s. maybe this year we will have a GA blogger convention somewhere???

Thank you so much for your kindness. I'm glad that you received the prints and that you are pleased with them.

What is it about handfuls of old buttons that just make people smile?

Hi Dawn! I'm recuperating from a nasty virus and feel better this morning, so where do I go first? Your blog, naturally, to see what wonderful things are there! I love all your posts, but this one in particular touched me--you have so many sweet friends! And those buttons! I have collected vintage buttons for years and grab some every chance I get--they seem to be getting more and more expensive around here, but you got a fantastic bargain! Thank you for always sharing your treasures with everyone!

Zandra said...

Precious them all. But what is it about buttons that we can't resist? Each one a time traveler, a precious litte jewel. My granddaughte is hooked on buttons. When she comes over she loves to use them instead of colors. Fill in the picture and there you go. Frame it, save it or pop them off and start all over again.
Have a wonderful day,

Sandi said...

Lovely gifts Dawn! I love the buttons too. I especially love white and cream ones that still have the thread in them.
Have a wonderful Christmas!!

June said...

Dawn isn't that Lori awesome to send such a sweet package your way. I think she knows you well. What a lovely little baby dress! Lori is one of the first people that introduced herself to me when I started my blog and is still cheering me on. Her talent is awe inspiring.

I love Kim's artwork. I am so glad you were able to win her giveaway. The prints are wonderful!
