and I wasn't in my jammers for once (Prudence, you know what
I am talking about)!
The first was a sweet card and Valentine from Diane of
Lavender Dreams. Here is the card:
And here is the little vintage Valentine that you see peeking out of the corner:
Diane and some other bloggers are doing a challenge, I forgot the amount but the goal is to send so many pieces of mail out
this month. I gave Diane my address so that she could send me
something. We are all so computerized now that the mailing of
handwritten notes and cards has fallen by the wayside. I think
this is so nice that these gals are trying to bring it back. Check Diane's blog HERE to read about the post.
The next surprise was from Sheila of SEASONS OF THY HEART
and COUNTRY IMPRESSIONS.
They are both her blogs but the Country Impressions is where she sells her beautiful florals. You can also, of course, see her beauties on the first link to Seasons...
Here's what she sent me JUST BECAUSE I told her I loved it and asked her to hold it for me until March 3rd, but she went ahead and sent it to me NOW. I was teary eyed when I got the Valentine from Diane but I bawled my eyes out when I opened Sheila's package:
And a surprise (she always does this!) of these wonderful rag wrapped eggs that filled the whole kitchen with cinnamon:
The eggs are going in my Grandmother's dough trencher with my antique chocolate molds for Easter.
Thank you Diane, it IS nice to get mail.
Sheila, thank you from the bottom of my prim little heart.
You made this little house a lot cheerier and brighter today!
Got some stitching to do on the giveaway sampler. It's coming along, I had a little setback when I fell the other night, but the hand and wrist are much better. Nothing broken!
