Beautiful Mail (2nd Post of the Day)!

Look what flew in today! The extremely rare felty bluebird of Massachusetts. This little guy is just about the sweetest little fowl you'll ever catch a glimpse of, if you're lucky. He's a rare bird. Unique. One of a kind. You birdwatchers look hard. You may never again see such a sight. He's way off course but it looks like he may stay a while. See, he's already built himself a most interesting nest out of linen and clothesline! He's a clever one that felty bluebird, wouldn't you say?

He doesn't travel light either. Look what he had packed in his little birdbag. Why it looks like he shops on Etsy! In particular, he may have a weakness for the wares of Amy at During Quiet Time. Oh! Wait a minute! What's that you say little bluebird? They are gifts. Gifts for me? From Amy? Well, I'm just flabbergasted! That is so kind of her... Just look at what she sent along!

Not good enough! Let's see some closeups!!!

My very own square of pansy-printed linen... Score.

Some gorgeous linocut printed covered buttons... Score.

A lovely linocut evening primrose printed card... Score.

And this great card! (Does Amy know I hoard greeting cards?...) Score.

And finally (as if that wasn't enough), some matching pins for my rare felty bluebird of Massachusetts!!!

All made by Amy, here:

That bird is getting comfortable... Yep, he's definitely staying. Welcome home my little friend!

Thanks so much Amy! I love it all! I guess this means I owe you, eh? :)


  1. Wow!! What a great package! The pincushion is amazing!!! I'm so jealous of all the lovely things Amy sent you!! I'm going to have to check them out in person!!!

  2. I'm so happy that you like your gifts! You took such great pictures of everything too! I am looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with the buttons and pansy print. I remembered your comment about liking the magenta prints. Enjoy!

  3. Wow you really scored there. That little bird is just so sweet!

  4. Amy has made some extraordinary things! The bluebird is fantastic! Ann :-)

  5. ..Yum! You can't beat lushious gifts, I am loving the pins..may have to get hold of some of those :-)
