Today was my Lucky Day
Today I was lucky enough two get to deliveries from the Postman.
My first one was from Victoria of Vintage Tea. Victoria had a Tag Giveaway and I was lucky enough to receive this gorgeous tag.
Thanks Victoria

My second parcel came from
Kerryanne of Shabby Art Boutique.
Kerryanne was having a 50th Post Giveaway.
Lucky for me Gypsy picked my name.
Look how beautifully the parcel was wrapped.

Inside was Kerryanne's wonderful book

' Shabby Doodles' full of fabulous designs.
She was also sweet enough to include some extras.

There was a sweet smelling bag of potpourri - another organza bag held some embellishments including ribbon, rhinestones & metallic cord.

Look at the pretty bunch of roses wrapped in a little paper doiley.
There was also 2 packets of blank cards and some envelopes to get me going on creating with some of the designs from Kerryanne's book.
Thank you Kerryanne

Catching up with you. Whew! you have been busy. I love your sun-in-the-house photos. Makes me remember that life is just one big special effect. And, I can totally identify with your grandma days. It seems they come in bunches. And we love it when all is said and done. And there you are, making beautiful art in the midst.
