Gratitude, Part Two...


It's time again for me to offer some long overdue thanks
to two very special friends...

First up, my beautiful pal Polly from Sassafras Stuff gifted me with
a veritable bounty of goodies.

As I opened the BIG box, I was delighted to see
that my prezzies had been packed
in vintage book pages. So clever, my Polly girl. :-)




First up?


Wanna know what's inside this pretty box?


These yummy smelling candles! The aroma is just heavenly.

Next up?


This darling little "A" nest and altered clothespin.


Love the #2 zinc pail!

But the pièce de résistance ?
Have a little look-see... 


This BIG, beautiful burlap wreath!


Is that not fabulous???


Thank you SO much, sweet Polly!
It was MY pleasure to feature you, and my honor to call you friend.

And speaking of friends, one of my dearest, Debra from Common Ground
spoiled me rotten with a very special birthday package...




The perfect vintage card!


LOVE this delicately lovely vintage tin box!
Just perfect for my jewelry.



A beautiful set of vintage napkins...


and these incredible altered bottles created by Debra herself!
Seriously, is there anything this talented lady can't  do? I think not.

I love it all, but as Debra well knows, the greatest gift has been her friendship.
She's more than a friend, truly, she is family.

And there's more!
I've been blessed and spoiled by even MORE bloggy friends,
and I'll be sharing my spoils soon!

Happy Sunday!




P.S.
Be sure to head on over to Beatnheart for a fabulous jewelry giveaway!!!

Dear Anne, Thank you so much for your support and sending your followers my way. No wonder everyone loves you so much...you are a dear, sweet angel and a woman that we all look up to and admire. You are a busy doer who doesn’t waste her time complaining...instead you take hold of life and embrace it. Thanks again...you deserve every blessing and gift(s) that come your way... I hope one day to meet you in the flesh and hopefully some of that magic dust of yours will fall lightly on my shoulders.
