Kindness always makes you smile ~

I have a few little image gifts for you!!
A wonderful old photo of a woman...
don't you love her dress?

A few more sweet images ~

The cards above came in the most wonderful
surprise package from Marie of Spun by Me...
they were accompanied by this precious gift ~

Look at her expression....
A beautiful little angel gently holding a bird's nest ~
Marie said she thought of me when she saw it
and knew she had to send it to me!

And look sweet Marie! She fits wonderfully on
my tiny side table in my studio.

And look at this gorgeous rose she included....
Dear sweet Marie, thank you so very much,
I just love her!!

Also a package arrived from sweet Lisa of Tarnished and Tattered!
Lisa and I both love books and have tons of the same ones...
well she discovered that there were a few
that I didn't have and she knew I'd love them ~
plus she added the most wonderful Japanese sewing books!!!!
Lisa bought them in San Francisco at a Japanese book store....
Thank you so very much sweet Lisa, I love it all!
Now I've got to figure out what to make first :)

I love this Tinsel Trading book!

A few peeks inside:

Another wonderful decorating book.....

Have you ever seen how neat the projects are in Japanese sewing books?
No, I can't read the instructions but the patterns and photos guide you.

Sometimes I can't even believe how many precious friends I've made here.
Just when I'm feeling blue or having a rough day,
my dear friends here in the land of blog make me smile!!!!

I hope you have a great Tuesday sweet friends,
hugs and love,

Just wanted to thanks you Dawn for sharing your beautiful images. You just find the very best!

These wer exactly was I needed today. For a swap, I've made a burlap bird in a willow nest and wanted to make a couple of tags to go along. How perfect are these!

Your the best Dawn!

Hey hon,
I'm so glad you like them. I adore the Japanese books, so simple, so beautiful. The angel Marie send is gorgeous, I think you can fit at least another couple of things on that table!! Maybe a 'p' pot? LOL Sorry, couldn't help myself. Lisa

The cover of the Tinsel Trading Co. book is amazing ~ and the peeks inside are beautiful. Love those covered boxes!
The children's clothing ideas in the Japanese sewing books are so fun ~ perfect for grandbabies!

I'm so glad you liked your angel ~ you put her right where I was thinking! I think Lisa is right ~ looks like there might be room for a tiny 'p' pot!!

What lovely gifts and anytime you look at them you will remember the ones that sent them. Isn't that blue and white embroidered bird in the Japanese book something.

I love the lacey dress in the photo and wondered where she is going in that coach--so lovely. The bird cards--exquisite. Japanese embroidery--none better. But sweet friends top them all.---Sally

Pattyjo said...

I love the face the lady with the umbrella. She is beautiful.
Your little angle is precious, is she made of wax? In the pic it looks like she has a wax coating.
