Most of the times I don't particularly like the sight of my mailman, for he means trouble. Bills and the like. But sometimes he brings me sweet and lovely packages from all over the world. Heaven!
It's about time I'm sharing with you the ones I received a while ago.
A gorgeous ATC from Kimberly of ArtJoyStuff. She makes the most wonderful and inspiring art and has delightful swaps.
Thank you for swapping with me Kimberly!!
Delicious embellishments from Evgenia.
I'm ashamed to tell you how long ago I received Evgenia's package, so I won't tell you. But it was given me as a prize for winning a challenge at CCCB - loooooooong time ago. I've already used some of her beautiful gifts in several projects.
Thank you so much Evgenia!!
And oohh the yummie-ness of the laces dear Ros sent me.
Ros was so sweet to send me this package along with some beautiful work of hers, because she knew I needed a cheer-up. Ros, you're the sweetest!!
Here's the gorgeous card and notebook she sent me.
I'm in love with this little notebook. The sweet birds, beautiful ephemera and the luxeous bow. Just what I love!
And so beautiful the clouds with the silver lining, and the pink flowers on the card, with the raindrops. Like a spring shower. I actually had tears in my eyes when I received this sweet card of Ros, so thoughtful of her. Thank you dear!
Not only did she spoil me, but also my 6 year old son Sam. She made him this beautiful and very cute bookmark and notebook. He was thrilled!
Thank you sweetie!!!
She made me this gorgeous dress bookmark, which fits a thick book perfectly.
I'm using it at present, reading "Sarum - The Novel of England" by Edward Rutherfurd. A must read if you're an England lover!
Sanne also sent me two paperclip bookmarks, so cute!! (One of which I'm using in my diary.) And a pompon bookmark and also a lot of yummie craft supplies.
Thank you dear Sanne, I enjoyed swapping with you!
And now - after all the presents I received - it's time for me to share a little something with you.
How about two beautiful images you could use for your own work?
Two antique fashion plates from 1823 (above) and 1782.
Don't you just love being part of the blog world? Meeting new friends from all over the world, being inspired by each other and sharing with each other. I truly feel blessed!
Enjoy your weekend sweet friends. Thank you for all the dear messages you leave me.
