Pretty Mail

The only thing better than pretty mail
is the sweet blogging friends who send it.

 The beautiful ladies who operate the Marie Antoinette
Mail Art group hosted a Halloween Gala a few weeks ago.

It was so much fun spending time in the chat room
with these sweet, talented women and getting to
know them better. There were contests held
throughout the day, and I won four prizes!!

This beautiful frame above was sent to me by Terri.
She is definitely the queen of detail, and does
the most amazing layering work.

Melanie sent me this gorgeous soldered necklace.
She always puts such pretty detail into her work.

She also sent me these pretty laces and flowers.

This sweet little inchie house ornament was created
by Rella, our site Queen. I also received two digital
collage sheets from her. Not only is she mega
talented, but she does a wonderful job running the site.

The Gala was a fun-filled day, and the prizes are beautiful.
Thank you ladies!!

Then, I was surprised to receive this pretty tag
from Carmelina. She is such a sweet soul, and
another wonderfully, talented blogger.

Thanks for making my day Carmelina!

And then.....this adorable little clothespin doll arrived today
from Elyse. She is such a sweet and generous
lady, and her beautiful personality shows
in everything she creates.

Thank you Elyse, you're a sweet friend!

I'm so thankful for the opportunity to be a part
of this beautiful community of bloggers. I
appreciate all of you who visit my blog.
