Birthday Goodies

Indeed Birthdays are filled with
Hope and Dreams ...

Last month was my special day
and the gals from my swap group
kept the mailman busy ...

Twyla and Lindsey sent me some
wonderful crafting supplies ...
and a giant letter "P" to embellish!


Thank you so much!
It will be a creative challenge to
do "something" to that big letter!

Kathy also sent me some
terrific crafting supplies ...
and a beautiful Vintage
hankie for my collection ...

You really do need to enlarge the
photo, above, to see the detail on
those teeny tiny adorable
wooden dolls ... just so cute!

Kathy also sent an amazing hot
iron transfer pattern book ...
I love those Vintage designs
for embroidery ...
Thank you Kathy ... I love it all ...

Deb sent me a package filled
with all kinds of goodies ...
I got my first-ever, one-and-only
faux pastry ... beautiful cards ...
a lilac candle and stickers ...

Some of the awesome cards ...

Deb made the sweet little purse,
and tucked inside of it was that
teeny tiny bottle of French Lilac
perfume ...
I collect tiny perfume bottles
and have never seen one like this before ...

These two cards have such
sweet verses on them ...
please take a moment to enlarge
them so you can enjoy them, too ...

A darling Vintage hankie with violets ...
and a heart shaped brooch with pearls,
of course! Isn't the Vintage Evening
in Paris powder box beautiful?!


Here is another "first" for me ...
an altered cigar box ... I just
ooooooohed 'n ahhhhhhhhed
when I opened it ...
I think it's
just so stunningly beautiful ...
at the beginning of this post is
a close up of the lid ...
Thank you, Deb, for spoiling me rotten ...
I love everything so much ...

I'm truly blessed with some wonderful
and dear friends from blogland ...

The inside of the box sums things up nicely ...

DREAMS FULFILLED ...

God bless ...

Until another time ... Pearl

I am so happy you received such fun and wonderful gifts. Due to our having to wait till our disability check arrives i can't mail a thing, but when I do you will be very happy! Can't wait to see how you decorate your letter P! As for the box, cigar, love it! I so wish years ago I wouldn't have passed up those boxes!! Sending much love and cheer, Lori
