Do you ever get the feeling that the world is giving you a little hug? That's how Friday felt for me. I found my mailbox brimming with packages, gifts from the bright bountiful blogosphere.
The first parcel came from Aunt Peaches. We'd held this head-to-head giftwrap recycling challenge a little while back. And as part of that, we exchanged creations. From Peaches I received this glorious pedestal platter made using papier-maché, an old paper lantern, and a chili bowl. Look at it! This platter is a thing of dazzling beauty that fits devilishly well in my dining room. How she pulled off that kind of magic from across the wavy ether, I will never know. She's just clairvoyant like that, I guess!
AND! And furthermore, I was lucky enough to win a giveaway (her very first) held by the sweet Candace Ashley of Sweet Nothings. My winnings include three dainty fabric flower pins handmade by Candace Ashley herself. If you visit Sweet Nothings, you will notice that she also has an Etsy shop called Blue Chair where she sells her very own handcrafted items. As part of the winning package, I also received a coupon redeemable at Blue Chair. Sweet that!
Yes indeed, Friday was a good day. Thank you so much for your lovely gifts Peaches and Candace Ashley. Hugs to you both!
Well, it's back-to-work for me now.
You have yourself a great day, and I will see you again soon!
