A wonderful find & a sweet gift from a friend ~

I was looking around on Ebay the other day because I just love searching for certain things and came across the most wonderful book with bird illustrations AND poetry!!

Guess the're not going to believe this but.... .99 cents!!! The shipping was a couple of dollars so I was one happy girl! It's in wonderful condition and just look at a few of the illustrations inside ~
I guess it was just meant to be mine!

A special package arrived from a sweet blogging friend....Sharon of SharDon Exclusives ~ she's so sweet to me and wanted to send me a goodie box, just take a look at the treasures!!! All kinds of bits and bobs to use in my artwork, this little wrapped box held even more gifts!

She's not only an amazing jewelry designer but wonderful with paper too!! Look at the precious bookmarks, embellished crystal
and my very own nest pin!!!!
Thank you so much sweet friend, I absolutely love it ALL!!!

"Friends are the flowers in the garden of our lives."

Happy Thursday sweet friends!!!
hugs and love, Dawn

The book is a great find and the goodies are divine. I found a book on etsy last night that I can't wait until it arrives. It is on making all sorts of paper flowers and is from the 60's.

That is an awesome book, Dawn. I know you probably wouldn't tear it apart, but if you did that cover would make an AWESOME journal!!

How giving you are, thats why you recieve dear one. Sharon is a wonderful paper artist, I just don't think she knows it, not really. Then,, the jewlery is to die for. I can't imagine doing bead work that is so unique as Sharons.
She is a gem.
Kinda like you!
