I came back from Cozumel against my better judgement!! I will do a post this week with some pics.
In the meantime I wanted to share some things with you. As most of you know who read my blog, I have a cousin in Michigan who kindly lets me use her address when I order things online.
Friday (12th), my daughter and I went to my cousin’s as we had a very early morning flight from Detroit airport. I had 4 packages waiting for me and I want to show you the contents of 3 of them.
First is my swap item from the Valentine’s swap that I hosted. Many thanks to Andy from Andy's Primitive Farmhouse for these sweet chenille hearts… love them!! Andy conspired with Lex of NorthwindStar to help her choose something for me.. as I understand it, these were made by Lex… I just want to thank you ladies!!!! I appreciate all your efforts and will put these to good use :D
Speaking of my dear friend Lex, I had also placed an order from her Etsy shop.. please check it out, she has some great things, all handmade by her talented self! I ordered her Valentine’s love letter/dove bowl filler set and I just love it! The envelope is fabric and so unique, filled with the lovely glass glitter-covered heart and some Sweet Annie.. and the dove is so sweet.. I just love this set!!
In addition to the Valentine’s set, I also ordered this set of 4 “Spice Chicks”.. so fun and cute and much larger than I expected.. lol… so I have to find a spot for them in my kitchen. :D … (I’m thinking of a countertop wooden bench.. what do you all think??). These chicks have cute little cheesecloth kerchiefs as well as labels tied around them with twine and Sweet Annie tucked in. They smell amazing and are just so unique!
Along with my Spice Chicks and Valentine’s set, Lex tucked in this adorable little gift for me.. a handmade fabric wall hanging! So, so sweet, I really appreciate this Lex! I know how hard those French knots are so I know how much work this was! Hugggggs!!
Now my 3rd package had a whole bunch of sweet little things that I ordered from MT's Whimsey. Marilyn has a lot of really neat things on her site at good prices… check her out.
I ordered a stack of 3 fabric hearts with a crow theme.. the bottom one is black, it’s kind of hard to see in this pic; 5 Sweet Annie covered eggs, I think it’s beeswax that’s covering them; I also got 2 pairs of grubby tapers and a set of old clothespins dipped in wax.. never saw those before so I just had to have them. Cute stuff eh??
Well I think that’s it for now, I will be posting some pics of my trip this week. Hope everyone enjoys all this eye candy!!! :D
