A Scare....and Pretty Mail

I had a bit of a scare this week
with my sister. She was in the ICU
for a few days, so I was away
from home. Everything is okay
now, and she's back home.

 I'm trying to get caught
up on e-mails, blog reading, etc.
I appreciate all of your sweet
comments this week, and I'm
trying to get around to see everyone.

While I was away, the mailman
brought some pretty packages.

This beautiful birdhouse came from
Melanie for the Marie's Secret
Garden Birdhouse swap.

I love the sweet details she has
added to this pretty piece.

April made this beautiful faux Easter cake
for Cassandra's Spring swap.

I love the sweet, whimsical bunny.

And the cake was filled with sweet goodies.

Then, this gorgeous cuff arrived. Terri
made this for me as a thank you
for a cuff that I made for her.

How sweet was that?

Look at that beautiful applique.

And, if all that wasn't enough, Carmelina
sent me this sweet little handmade doily,
as a thank you for the cuff I made her.

It is the prettiest shade of green, and
I'm going to find just the perfect
project to use this little treasure on.

Thank you Melanie, April, Terri, and Carmelina!

I love your beautiful gifts and will treasure each one.

I feel so blessed to have met, and continue
to meet, so many talented, and generous
people in blogland. You are sweet friends!
