I am so busy but had to take time to blog about some wonderful goodies I received in the mail!

I don't know how to put into words how I feel about our blog world. It is really amazing to meet so many kind, wonderful, beautiful people. I am over the moon with all the beautiful friendships that I have realized through blogging, all the beautiful inspiration we find and I am pretty excited to have my followers. My husband gets what I am trying to do with my art but he is about the only person in my small world within a 50 mile radius that does, thank god for him. So, with that being said it is everyone in blogland that really GETS IT and makes me feel as though I have a reason to keep plugging away.

I have a few things to share with you today that has made my last two mail days really special, this would never have happened without our blogging friends.

First up is a fabulous artist and one of the sweetest gals out there. Her name is Rhonda and you can find her over at if you haven't visited be sure to make your way over to her wonderful little world of all things french, you won't be sorry!

This girl knows how to mail off a package! YUMMY!!!

Look at the beautiful treasures I found in the little Paris bag.

Inside is a package I ordered.

Isn't this delish?

Inside that wonderful box, these precious little spools, not sure why the pic turned out so bad. BLAH!!

Wait until you see what came in this package, I knew I needed it as soon as Rhonda posted it on her blog.

check out this awesome cloth pocket book what a treasure.


I also won a giveaway on Rhonda's blog a month or so ago, check this out! The most beautiful sack!

Thanks Rhonda!

Next up is Jan from another beautiful blog full of so many inspiring goodies. I won her giveaway and I received it on Friday. The flowers are oh so pretty, love them. Thanks Jan!

They are really so gorgeous!

Next we have Cindy over at I won a lovely gift from her also. Thank you Cindy. Checkout this really cool bracelet and beautiful tag she sent me.

Oh wow... I gotta go look again! said...

Wow Debby,
I thought I was lucky! Your winnings are wonderful! I agree with you 100% about blog love. I think non-bloggers don't 'get' what a supportive, generous group of people are here in blogland. When I first discovered this wonderful place I too doubted the sincerity of it all. I was so scared to write my first post, but that fear soon faded. My life has changed in more ways that I'd ever imagined & it is because of the true friendships I've discovered blogging. Yeah, I'm talking about you too Debby! And as for Rhonda, wicked talent! And packaging is key I believe. A beautiful package is like another gift. Lisa

Jo said...

Hi Debby, I've popped by from Chriss Rollins' blog and I'm so glad I did. What a beautiful blog you have. The fabric book from Rhonda is such a special thing, and something to treasure. I can see why you had to have it (I'm often having the 'want' and 'need' conversation with my long-suffering husband, and that book is such a 'need'!). Jan's flowers are gor-juss, and Cindy's tag and bracelet are lush. Today is a great day!


Jacqueline said...

Me oh my, you have been so blessed to be on the receiving end of all those pretty things. It must make your heart just sing! Please send your addy to my email at I have your little goodie from The Calico Consignment Shoppe. I'll keep it on file. Love to you and thank you for your faithfulness to little gnome keeper you!
