You know it's a good day when the postman brings you a parcel.....especially one that is from this sweet gal....Donna over at Brynwood Needleworks
Awww.......Donna and Fezzik and Kes!!!! Look at all these goodies, wahoo!!!
Donna makes the most amazing and beautiful ATC cards.....this is a treasure for sure the angel, the stitching, and the tiny bit of bling.......oh my so elegant!
What's this? A little bear darling!
Wrapped up in a doily with a handmade button, ooohhh....chocolate of my favourite drinks....
It's her own mix, comes with the recipe and just look at her labels.....cute!!!
Donna, this is just so beautiful!!! A white and cream pouch to hold all sorts of sewing goodies!!!
Look, she saved the FB ribbon I used on her parcel, oh you are so clever girlfriend! I just love the beauty of the white fabric, sort of like a matelasse' fabric, with the most divine piece of lace... There is a hand drawn bear from our favourite artist Michelle it!!! I wanted to show the inside but all my photos came out is the prettiest fabric with delicate script on it..... this is just so beautiful!Handy dandy writing paper on magnetic strips.....good for little reminder notes on the fridge.

Yummy chocolates all wrapped up so pretty......great paper Donna!!
Oh My!!! A sweet little pin know I love them....
Looks so lovely in my pin keep cupboard!
Thank you Donna, what wonderful keepsakes and gifts to hold dear!!

Denise said...

Oh my gosh! You are always getting something in the mail...... What a nice gift!

We are fixing up the little house of Mom and Dad's today .. I am trying, not doing too well but not too bad. We hope to have it rented out by the 1st of March..... Some days I think I cannot stand someone out there and other days I know that Mom and Dad would not want me to leave it empty. I am hoping for some little lady so that I can have a coffee buddy once in a while.... We will see who the Lord brings...

Weather here BEAUTIFUL but turning nasty on Sunday! OH well.....Spring is headed our way, just have to be patient!

Hugs to you my friend......

What beautiful gifts, Margaret! Donna is just the best ever, isn't she! And, so full of wonderful talent & surprises. Hmmm. Didn't know she did hot chocolate, have to check that out.

Couldn't have sent her gift to a sweeter gal ... you!

Have a beautiful eve ~

GIVEAWAY ends Sunday

Hi Margaret B, Alot of great things from our friend Donna. I have some of her hot chocolate mix and it is yummy with some mini marshmellows on top or just to eat. Your bread looked so yummy. You have been having some cold I wish you would have kept it. I am just being a little selfish there. I just want the sun to shine to melt the snow we have.
I have just found out that we have family living close to Alberta, Canada. We didn't know about them until they called to gather some information about the family tree. We knew about some in Colorado. It is a small world. Have a great day and Take care. Your Missouri Friend.

What a treat it is to receive a parcel when it wasn't expected!
I enjoyed your bread post - those braids are lovely. You've inspired me to make the house smell good today by baking a couple of loaves.

Hi Mags!
So glad you like the goodies I sent. You're always so generous with me, and I treasure every single gift I've ever received from you. (They're all out where I can see them, too!) I just felt moved to reciprocate.

I'm so fortunate to have you and your friendship in my life. Really...some day, you, Shell and I will have to find a way to get together for a little retreat. Wouldn't that be grand?

Hugs from a friend who loves you in FL.
