Wonderful Gifts in the Mail~

 Hello dear friends.  I checked my mail last night around 8:30 and found a envelope from my dear friend, Marie at Lost Bird Studio! I couldn't wait to get home and open it!  I grabbed my camera and took pictures as I opened them. Most of you , I'm sure already know Marie. If you don't, you are missing out if you don't go visit her!  She is always sharing her talent with us on her blog and if you're lucky (like ME!) she gifts them too! I so love her style! In the picture above she made a little bag with a vintage image of a beautiful lady with lace and mother-of-pearl buttons and a vintage clothespin with lace tied to it.
 Inside the bag was this. I love how she uses vintage paper to wrap with.
 This tag was attached to it. I love the image and this is what it said on the back of it...
                                                    This made me smile. :)
                                   One of Marie's gorgeous journals.
 With one of her adorable nests tied to it.

 Inside the journal was this tag tucked in the side pocket.

 This is what the tag said.  Thank you, sweet Marie.
 This is the back of the lovely journal.
I told you she is talented. My gifts are proudly hanging on my art wall in my craft room. I love every single bit. Thank you for thinking of me.

What have YOU been up to? I started my "Heartstrings" class that Nancy is teaching. I'm having a great time. I will be sharing a couple things I've been working on soon. If you are interested go check it out.

I hope you are all having a great week! It has been raining cats and dogs here!  So great time to be in the craft room! :)
