WoW... Just Like Christmas!

 
 That's right, just like Christmas! I recently participated in a French Inspired Swap within our Etsy Cottage Style group and my partner was Wanda Buxton from Roses in Winter. Wanda created the most lovely French Inspired Sewing kit from vintage linens and laces. The sewing kit has about everything in it a fashionable lady would have to carry and it is fashioned in Marie style. Just lovely as well as everything else that was enclosed in the box.  Thank You again Wanda! Take a peek and see what a wonderful gift this was. I mailed Wanda a French inspired Altered Art bottle and will show is on the next Pink Saturday post. Don't you just love Swaps, this was a great one! Have a wonderful and creative week! Now back to reality and the tail end of painting. Well actually my son is doing the work, I'm the organizer. We can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel now and I need a rest as my knee bothers  me a bit.

Marilou, It is all so beautiful. It is fun to get a package in the mail isn't it? Thank you for your kind words on the upcoming event. I am just praying and keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for good weather. xo

Hello!!
Just stopped by and one of my favorite songs started playing...

"You alone are my strength my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship thee"

Hope all is well with you and yours. We are still hangin in here! But my favorite season is here so it makes me happy!
Take Care Dear Lady!
