Such goodness ~

A precious parcel arrived from France today!
Gifts from my dear friend Suey filled with yummy old French ephemera....
Of course you know I have to share with you, right?

Just look at the sweet gifts!!! Su so knows what I love!
We've been friends for several years now through my blog ~
she calls me regularly and it's free for her too!!!
She's originally from England and now lives in France with her family.
I've so loved corresponding with her through my blog, emails and telephone calls.

Su makes gorgeous cards and teaches classes in France too!

She sent me a fountain pen because I told her I'd love to practice my penmanship!

Plus a few nests that will look so beautiful on our Christmas tree this year!

Look at this precious ATC she made me using an image I'd posted.....

The precious kid leather gloves she sent
look a little like angel wings when placed this way...
don't you think?

Plus, here's a little peek at what I've been up to lately.
A little artwork in the making!!!
Coming soon to an Etsy shop near you :)

A cool front has just blown into Georgia and I LOVE IT!!!!
You'll find me laying in the front yard with my bikini on....
HAHA!!!! Yeah....right!!!
Like I'd even HAVE a bikini!!!!
But I'll still be soakin' up these precious fall breezes ~

Have a beautiful Friday my sweet friends,
hugs and love,

Hi sweet Dawn!
Let me's yellow and polka dotted! Haha!
What a sweet friend you have! The goodies she sent you are wonderful! And thank you for sharing! Isn't blogland the greatest? Such precious friendships. I have a photo that I'm sharing too on my blog. A pretty french 1934 woman on a postcard-you would love her!
Have a wonderful cool, breezy weekend.

These are wonderful goodies and I know you will create some gorgeous pieces using them, dear Dawn! Thank you so much for sharing some ephemera! I'm working on a French themed swap at the moment, so these are just perfect and I saved all of them :-).
Have a lovely weekend, sweet friend!
Warm wishes and hugs,

What beautiful things from France and so wonderful to have a friend from there...When I worked at the bank I had a customer from France and some of the handwriting on some of those papers reminds me of her beautiful handwriting. Thank you Dawn for sharing with us.....

What a great friend to have in such a wonderful country full of tons of fantastic ephemera!!!! And how lovely of you to share some of it! Many thanks! I only took a couple of pictures, (didn't want to be greedy, LOL). And you're right, the vintage gloves do look like bird wings, or angel,:) Love the piece that you're currently assembling, I can see that it's going to be another one of my favourites of yours! Cheers to you Dawn! What a lucky woman you are to have so many around the world thinking of you! ox

What a precious collection! Beautiful French pieces, and no doubt you will turn them into something totally fabulous.

Rhonda said...

Parcels from France are the BEST, aren't they?
Lovely ephemera, you are so sweet to share with us. Now, you've inspired me again to dig through mine.

DROOL! Lot's of Drool! Gorgeous goodies all! Thanks for sharing! Hugs Dawn!

Revi said...

What a thoughtful and wonderful friend to have! I can't wait to see your creations. I love found object collage and assemblages - partly because they remind me of how Christ takes us and reworks us and makes us beautiful.

Barbara Jean said...

Can't wait to see your new art.

Maggie said...

So glad you stopped by, Dawn. It's an honor :-) I just love connecting with like-minded artistic friends. Blogging is pretty darn amazing.

I am now going to print me some luscious French ephemera! Maybe I'll hide a snippet of it in my next Simplicity illustration, hee hee.

YOU are such a dear to share your French goodies. I LOVE the text! Your new goody for Etsy is amazing too. WE FINALLY GOT RAIN! Cooler weather & rain. I had to Google it to be sure I identified it correctly!!!! Hee Hee Enjoy the weather & the weekend. HUGS!

That's a package that would have caused me to do the happy dance! Beautiful!!! Thanks so much for sharing. I've been looking for some great vintage images for Green Paper's gluebook swap, and you provided me with some today! Thank you!

I hear ya sister, my bikini days are way back in my life. I don't even dare wear a regular swimming suit, let alone a bikini!
Your new project looks intriguing. I'm still loving my Prairie Girl. I polished her up a bit the other day. It gives the wax more of a sheen. Just use a soft clean cloth to buff it up a bit.

Ohhhh what a great package- and thanks so much for the scans- I'm going to save to my "From Dawn" folder right away. You're so generous to share all your great images!
