I have a huge list this week because I've fallen behind. Stay with me, it's worth it!
This smiling face is a hand drawn card from Mim with a little note about the collage below, saying she thought of me and had to send it to me! You know I love this raven collage!! I'll have to let the artist know how much I 'adore' it!
Thank you Mim!!! xoxo
Up next is this happy yellow ginham bag adorned with a sparkly butterfly in a brown package from the Netherlands.
It has a wonderful smelling sachet and a lovely silken drawstring bag with butterflies...
And this gorgeous pashmina from Marja which matches my eyes! You should see the pattern. Click to enlarge it! The photographs don't do it justice because I took them in terrible lighting.
I gasped when I opened the gift!
And did you see this card they had made for me at the Chinese New Year celebration?
They had it made while they waited. See the artist creating it on this video on Marianne's blog!
The dragon is for power, the fish is for prosperity, the butterfly is for beauty, the bird is for happiness and the heart is for love ;)
Thank you so much M & M!!!
Happy Chinese New Year to you too!
(This is the fun card they sent with a note!)
This is a wonderful bookmark sent to me by Lisa. What a wonderful quote by Van Gogh!
I need to silence that voice more often ;)
Thanks so much Lisa!!
These wonderful cards came from Joss! I love her drawing of the 4 cacti, one of my faves!
Inside was this adorable vintage postcard asking if I'd like kissing lessons from a dandy teacher!
What a hoot!
These wonderful, exotic atc's were inside too! "Mask" and "Market Day." Thank you dear friend. We're all in love with your African style art! xoxo
Is this not one of the prettiest cards you've ever seen? I love the layers of cut paper and the color combos.
It's from my dear friend KJ who now lives just over to hours away from me!
Inside was a little pocket with a tag for a secret message.
It says "Happy Spring, my terrific friend!"
Thank you KJ. Ditto! xoxo
Heartfelt thanks to all of you. Wow, how does this happen?
My gratitude is bursting forth!
