Blessings ~

First a sweet poem for your Mother's Day projects...

It's always amazing to me the friends I've made here!!
Near and very, very far away ~ it doesn't matter,
we are all kindred spirits and know what the other loves!

I received a few parcels this past weekend
and have to share the goodness with you...
and I know if I LOVE IT, you will too!!!

A package arrived from sweet Jill who lives in Australia!!
She sent me the most precious treasures ~

A handmade, lace-trimmed pouch filled with sweet things ~

Beautiful buttons, antique lace, sheet music, doll shoes and precious baubles...

Thank you so very much sweet Jill!!! You know I love it all so much ~
I'm just humbled that you would send me these treasures
from so very far away.

I love it all so very much Jill!!!!!

Another dear friend, Vikki of Humble Heart
send me an amazing care package too!!
Vikki knows my heart and knows what I love as well ~
just look at the bounty!!

Have you seen this fabric?? It has vintage bird prints on it!!
I've not seen this anywhere ~ but of course, I don't get out much either :)

Old photos...babies and ladies, my favs!

Lace and buttons...
look at the coin purse Vikki covered in text and trimmed in lace,
I love this idea!!!

An old baby shoe, doll head, tags, papers....

A handmade pouch she made with the bird fabric too!!

Old album pages, dictionary pages, book much goodness ~
Looks like I need to get off my duff
and get to making some artwork!!!!!

Thank you so, so much sweet Vikki,
I don't even know what to say but thank you SO, SO MUCH!!!
I love it all angel!!!!

I was also able to finally finish three more sachets
that are heading off to their new owners this week.....

I am honored, humbled, privileged and simply can't believe
the friends I've made while having this blog ~
Thank you for coming here, visiting me and for
always, always,
inspiring me!!!

Wishing you a most wonderful Monday dear friends,
hugs and love,
