~Look What The Mailman Brought Me~

Good Tuesday evening everyone. I wanted to share with you some wonderful things that were waiting for me when we returned from our vacation. I was the lucky winner of a birthday giveaway. I won this primtastic bonnet from Jenn at Bittersweet Prims. I kind of won this by default because Jenn had to pick two winners. I'm perfectly fine winning this way. Hey I will take a homemade prim creation any time I can get one! Look at this perfectly prim goody. This is the first bonnet I have ever had. Now I know why so many ladies are fascinated with them. For now it is hanging on the side of a ladder that sits on the hearth of our fireplace. Eventually I will have it hanging from a peg shelf.

Next I participated in another fabulous swap hosted by none other than Char from The Pickled Pepper Patch. This swap was a textile swap. My partner was Tammy from A Primitive Place. I absolutely love everything Tammy sent. She is very passionate about prims and she is also a wonderful crafter. Isn't that swatch of fabric the best. How does something that simple give a girl such pleasure!

These stockings will just be perfect hanging at the fireplace this Christmas. I just think they are so darn precious. I may have to ask Tammy to make me a couple more of them.

This pillow sits on my couch. I love it.

Last but not least, Tammy was very generous with hand towels, fingertip towels and napkins. At least I think they are napkins. I'm really contemplating framing them.
I really want to than Jenn and Tammy for being so generous with their giving. One day soon I will be having a giveaway so I can possibly give back to someone something just as special as they have so graciously given to me.

That's all for now. I think I hear my bed pillow calling me. I hope everyone had a fabulous Tuesday and I hope the week ahead brings you many happy moments and tons of blessings.


ps. Tammy I'm hoping your swap package makes it to you tomorrow.
