You Meet The Sweetest People Here!

You meet the sweetest people in blogland.  I received this package from Judi at Cranberry Blossoms the other day.

She said she saw it and immediately thought of me.
Does that ever happen to you when you are out shopping?  We might not meet in real life, but we know each others likes and dislikes, just as if we have been best friends since childhood.

Thank you Judi!  You are so sweet and thoughtful!  I love them....


I also received these fabulous French Fleur de Lis gift bags in the mail.
Aren't they wonderful?  I won them in a giveaway that Lisa of Pickles and Cheese had.  She is going to be selling these in her ETSY shop, I believe.

It's snowing again today....It is beautiful....
Hurry Up Spring!

Welcome Home,
Penny
p.s. only one more day to vote on the post on my right sidebar....

  5. Happens to me all the time Penny, in fact I saw a rooster aka le coq today that made me think of you! I am planning to buy Waverly Le Saison de Printemp fabric for my DR windows. It has roosters and toile and I am so excited to change the pinky terra cotta with paisley to Roasted Sesame with roosters and toile.

  14. Those notepads are beautiful - such a thoughtful gift. Blog friends are the best friends!!!!!

    Love the bags - I enjoy using plain bags and adding rubber stamped images, cotton tape and string - throw in some shredded vintage music sheets and you have a beautiful presentation.

  15. Ooops, forgot to mention SNOW! How much more before Spring? Bet you are wallowing in it again this morning - but yes, it's beautiful too. We had a dusting in the night and it's just about gone now.

    Stay warm and safe dear Penny.

  20. Hi Penny, yes, we had 9 inches and that was lots of snow. It is beautiful but I am ready for spring flowers and warmer weather.

    The bird house turned out just beautiful. I love the birds. Your work is so lovely. I am so proud of my tray from you. It always gets attention when someone comes over.

    Have a great evening.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  25. Don't you just love to get pretty things in the mail? I sure do. I can think of so many times that a special package brightened my day...sigh...I'm reminiscing and similing as I type.
    It's snowing here. I'm trying to ignore it, since it probably won't amount to much. Just keep on Spring Dreaming.
