Such kindred spirits are found here ~

Don't you feel that way? As we gather on each other's blogs, we discover those that we are drawn to, those we have similar tastes and it is those blogs that we return to ~ to be inspired and to see things that we know we'll love.

Deborah from The Painted Nest sent me a treasure box, filled with beautiful things that she knew I'd love....things that she loves and KNEW that I would as well! Lace, buttons, papers, pearls, and beautiful fabric pieces....just to be sweet ~

She's just started blogging and is learning the ropes ~ getting familiar with posting photos and creating links. And doing a great job too!!! Deb thank you so much, you are so kind to me and you know that I love each and every trinket!!! I'm so glad that you're here in the land of blog and you know I'll help in any way I can ~

A little peek at the favors for the baby shower!

I just received an email from Susie asking what would you use these paper cones for....the tutorial link for making these is in my side bar. Well......this is what I told her:

The paper cones can be filled with candies on the holidays and would be great for Valentine's Day, little goodies like buttons, lace and ribbon for the seamstress, fill with lavender and hang on a cabinet knob, top with a handmade birds nest with a couple of eggs from the craft store ~ hang somewhere in your home where you need a little spring! Fill with paper shred and include a pair a beautiful earrings on a small card to give as a gift to a friend.....hang them on each chair post and include wonderful chocolates to give to guests after dinner ~

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday sweet friends!
xxoo, Dawn

What a beautiful gift! I'm sure it was wonderful opening that one! That little bird is to die for!
The soaps for the shower are just gorgeous!!
Thank you for sharing you idea's about the cones~ I just love them! When we were kids we would fill them with flowers and notes and hang them on special friends doors for May Day. Why is it no one celebrates May Day anymore???

Great idea for the cones, Dawn. I love cones but because I'm too practical, I'd not found a good use for them. Now I have. Thanks.

I feel the same way, Dawn. I knew there were people out there who like the same things that I do, but to meet so many of them is great! Your gifts are so pretty - I'm sure you'll enjoy them. ~Lori

I hope this isn't a duplicate comment - I had a problem with it processing.

The paper cones would be lovely hanging on someone's door with flowers tucked in for May Day.

Phyllis said...

You are so right about being drawn to certain blogs. I've got so many bookmarked now and most of them are sewing related or gardening, or just plain artistic.

I love the soaps; they are gorgeous!
