Mail call...

Over the last few weeks, several special packages have been delivered to our house. I'm so spoiled.

Renee (My Vintage Mending) sent me a birthday package filled with all my favorite kinds of goodies. Her signature wrapping (sewing patterns) always brings a smile to my face. 



A darling birthday apron, complete with a nosegay of tiny millinery flowers.

Sweet illustrated books to feed my obsession.   Love that Jack and Jill Halloween issue!

Another fabulous bead basket to add to my growing collection.  It's currently on my fireplace mantle and will eventually make it's way to my craft room. 

I can't wait to figure out some special crafting projects with these treasures. Thank you, Renee.
Elizabeth (Creative Breathing) sent my girls these darling fairies.  They have taken up residence in our yellow cottage.


Aren't they sweet?  I'm sure they will have lots of adventures this summer with Miss Josie's rabbit family and the occasional superhero that drops in for tea and cake.  Thank you, Elizabeth.
Pink Roses and teacups sent me these needlepoint Chinese outfits to frame for Josie's bedroom.  Her mother in law made them years ago.  Absolutely beautiful.

I'm hoping to do some crafting (and work on Josie's birthday decorations) over the Memorial weekend and want to get these framed and hung on the wall.  Thank you, Debbie.

Speaking of Josie's birthday, Viv (sent me this pom pom flamingo).  

Josie is having a flamingo themed birthday and he will have a special place of honor on Josie's cake.  As I said last week, blogging friends are the MOST generous kinds of friends.  PS.  I almost forgot.  Thank you for the beautiful owl necklace, Cindy.  I need to get Chris to snap a picture of me wearing it!

I can't wait for the flamingo party. I don't think you can get any farther way from last year's super hero party than pink flamingos.
