Giving thanks and enjoying my orange feather tree...

I'm long overdue in giving thanks to a few blogging friends who have recently sent me goodies. (Meri and Leslie, I promise to make good on all my proper thank yous and spread them out over the next few posts).

First.  
Deb from Garage Sale Gal recently sent me this beautiful tea cup and lace doily.  It's been the sweetest addition to my teacup collection.  Thank you, Deb.

Second.
Last week, I purchased another Magpie Ethel creation to add to my growing collection and Laurie tucked in a few extra treasures. In 2011, I purchased the black cat and this year I added the sweet little witch. Love them!!

Knowing that I collect vintage Christmas bulbs shaped like lanterns, she tucked in a few bulbs along with a hand-made Halloween ornament.


Thank you, Laurie.  I always appreciate visiting your etsy store and admiring your estate sale finds each week on your blog.
Third.
As most of you know, Renee (My Vintage Mending) is so generous in sharing her vintage and hand-made treasures with others.  Knowing how much I like owls, she purchased this owl pin cushion from Beth's Bagz and had it sent to me.  

She also sent me a Halloween package filled with all sorts of sweet treasures.


My orange feather tree is starting to look rather full with all my latest acquisitions!



I've said this before and I'll continue to say this, but blogging friends are really the most GENEROUS friends.  Are the rest of you starting to get your Halloween out?  We've got 20+ bins full of Halloween decorations waiting to be unpacked.  I'm not kidding.  If you'd like a few Halloween goodies to add to your collection, don't forget to leave a comment on this earlier post for my Kim K. Halloween give-away.
