A Giveaway Gift Received and Adored...

Marie at Spun By Me had a wonderful giveaway just before Christmas. I was so lucky to have won, and today, I received a package in the mail...

Inside I found a sweet note...
and a beautiful little bear, dressed in doilies and lace by Marie, to add to my collection... A darling altered art photo and frame saying "Home is where the Heart is"... and a little Feed Sack pillow filled with Lavender... "I want my Fairy Godmother"... with vintage tatting across the back.. Each will find a special place here in the farmhouse... My sweet Doily Dressed Teddy now resides on the living room coffee table with Vintage Christmas and Mercury Glass Candlesticks... My darling Altered Art Baby and Frame has found a home in the entryway, with other treasured objects and art... and the Feed Sack Pillow filled with Lavender you might be surprised to see... has found it's home in the china cabinet amongst the Green Depression Glass and Vintage China... so I can smell the Lavender every time I open the doors...

Thank you Marie, for these lovely gifts... and brightening our New Year...
