I Love My Mailman!


He brings me such beautiful things!


Like this beautiful scarf from Claudia.

She had shown a scarf like this on her blog,
and I was instantly smitten! I contacted
her to see if she would be willing to make
one for me. And here it is!



I love the beautiful, warm colors and the pretty pattern.

Thank you so much Claudia, I love it!!


I nabbed these beauties the minute I saw
them in Carmelina's etsy shop.

She creates the most beautiful doilies,
and now, she's making crocheted lace trim.

This will be used on something really special.


She even included extra goodies in my package!

Thanks so much Carmelina! I love it all!


We had a fun Valentine Gala, with live chat,
in the Marie Antoinette Mail Art group,
and I won this gorgeous heart pocket from Terri.


This is one talented lady, and I LOVE her creations!


She even filled the pocket with these beauties
for me to use in my creating.

Terri, I love everything! Thank you, sweet friend!
 

My sweet friend Sonia sent this beautiful tag
and yummy chocolates for Valentine's Day.

I've already eaten half of the chocolate!
Thank you for thinking of me Sonia.


And, I won Tabitha's beautiful Valentine giveaway!

Look at all these sweet goodies.

Thank you Tabitha, I'm going to have fun with these!


I also purchased three new books. I'm hoping
to learn lots of fun, new ideas and techniques.


Well, I'm off to create something pretty!

Oh, wait...I have to clean the house first. :(

Ah forget about the house...it will only get dirty again ; )

I recognized Claudia's work the minute I saw your thumbnail on my blog list. She makes the most wonderful scarves! Yours is fabulous.

All your gifts are wonderful. Terri's work is truly beautiful, as is Sonia's. I hope I didn't forget anyone!
Oh yes, Carmelina's work is just amazing too! All of these women (and YOU) are just amazing creators!
Hugs,
Terri

Well, being the sort of "off-kilter" person I am..the first thing I thought when I read your title was..."does his wife know"...that you love the mailman, I mean...Sorry...that's what you get for having people like me visit your blog. Moving along. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the stuff you got...and the neat thing is that you will actually DO SOMETHING with it and put it to good use...unlike some of us that get stuff and let it s.i.t. I am excited FOR you! Hugs- Diana
