***warning - photo heavy post***
My mailbox has been full these last few days.
Pictured first are all the goodies from Claire, my partner in the brooch swap. Look at all that stuff! There's trims (new & vintage), buttons, card charms, ribbon, candies, and some adorable tags made by Claire.
She also made this button heart, already hanging up in my studio.
And last but not least, the brooch! I immediately pinned it on my denim jacket. Thank you Claire, I love it all!!
Next is a surprise package from lla, which totally threw me for a loop. Those are knitted dish towels! I'm tellin' ya, those look too pretty to use on my nasty old dishes, but perhaps they'll make doing the dishes more fun, especially if I'm wearing a tiara!
Another surprise package was from Amy, some goodies from her stash. Pink + green, one of my favorite color combos! Thank you Amy!
Though I was expecting this package, I was surprised at how beautiful these earrings are. Wow Maryann, I love these! A few days ago she posted on her blog that she was selling two pairs of her handmade earrings to raise money for the American Cancer Society, so of course I bought some. My picture does not do them justice, they really are wonderful.
Well, that's it for now. More stuff has been arriving in my mailbox, thing I've purchased, but I'll save that for another post. I swear, it's like Christmas in February!!!
