Sweet Little Blessings in the Mail Today!











Happpppy Hump Day to all! I hope everyone around the country is enjoying Spring weather....unfortunately here....that is NOT the case. We have had an abnormal amount of rain here in Central Oregon....AND Gulp.........SNOW...YES snow in May. We have actually had it on the 4th of July..but that is a whole other bowl of beans. Well as I had the old mantra "rain, rain, go away"....stuck in my head..I headed on down to the mail box. I must say the sunshine came out in full swing when I saw I had two sweet little packages from two dear ladies! Dear Ceekay..from http://thinkinofhome.blogspot.com/ sent me the sweetest Cherry Pie towel AND the cutest tag.....I had to show their new home! Thank-you sooo much Ceekay...I love them both! I will def. be using the recipe on the towel too! As if that was not enough Tricia Anne over at http://notesofsincerity.blogspot.com/ made me do a jig when I saw the lovely toile package she sent me full of old postcards and an adorable vintage sewing kit that she inherited from her Grandmother.....sigh.....you have no idea the smile that was on my face Trish when I saw that. It is very special and I will cherish it! Sooo here are a few pics of the homes of these gifts from the heart....I had fun finding special little nooks for it all. You two ladies made my day and I think you from MY heart!
Other than that today I just snapped a few pics of a custom order banner that I finished for someone....I thought I would give her a sneek peek....it was a whoppin 16 letters, it spells out "The Flower Cottage"...I enjoyed making it and LOVED working with these colors. Sooo bright and happy with the vintagey patterns and colors! I am going to go now and try to finish up organizing here in my little studio! XOXO, Cherry

Isn't if FUN to get presents. Your basket turned out so cute. And the banner! ADORABLE. You are so creative. I love that little silhouette of the 2 children. Is that a stamp? Cute. Mimi

Isn't it wonderful when sweet little blessings come into our ordinary days...when we are the least expecting them...and bless our hearts. Friendships are definitely gifts from God to us, to encourage and help make our journeys lighter. Thank you for sharing your blessings with us. They are perfect gifts for you. The banner is gorgeous!!

Looks like a fun package. I also love the peeks of the banner.

So sorry about all the rain. Our spring is already past here. It is already hot and humid here. I would love something in the middle. I probably need to move somewhere else. : )

Wow...these things have your name written all over them, enjoy!!
