Mail call...part 2, 3 and 4!

I'm long overdue in properly thanking some friends for recent gifts.
Many many weeks ago, Lynne (Irish Garden House) sent me a box of miniature treasures, including 3 wooden spools.  
Two of the wooden spools have already been used in crafting projects.
 As you can imagine, I've had so much fun sorting through all her miniatures.
Thank you for thinking of me.  Please know they are very much appreciated, Lynne.

Erica from Golden Egg Vintage sent me this beautifully decorated box as part of the vintage crafting supply exchange that we did with Elizabeth (Creative Breathing).  Isn't the lid of the box absolutely darling?!?  

Here's a close up of one of the painted birds.

The supplies are as unique and fabulous as the box that she decorated.

Imagine the fun I'm going to have exploring and creating!!

Then, Donna from My Shabby Chateau contacted me to say that she had pulled my name for her Paris-inspired giveaway.
 Emma has already taken most of the contents downstairs to her Parisian bedroom. 

 I told my soon-to-be 15 year old,  we could share the polka dot scarf.

Donna even tucked in a cowgirl pail that she decorated.

Yes.  I'm so darn spoiled.  The blogging community is such a generous community.  Thank you ladies.  This has been such a hectic time at work and your packages have been such a lovely treat. Friday (tomorrow) is the first of the many birthday celebrations happening at our house.  Get ready!
