Special Deliveries

On Valentine's Day, Saturday, I received two special packages! This one came all the way from Germany! I won Anita's, My Country Cottage Garden handmade heart give-away and it is even more beautiful than the photos show. Go to Anita's blog to see many more of her lovely creations, plus the pictures of her gardens are very enjoyable.

The delicate needlework is exquisite! Can you see the tiny seed pearls.


This lovely fabric heart is also filled with very fragrant lavender!

Thanks, Anita! Your pretty heart will always have a special place in our home!
Thanks, also for sending one I can use year around!

Above is another special package I received and another give-away I won! This one is from LaTeaDah, Gracious Hospitality. She has a very versatile blog with great photography. Included was a quilt pattern design, a framed cross-stitch, tea pot earrings, and tea bags!

LaTeaDah did this pretty little framed cross-stitch. The verse is very true!


The little tea pot earrings are darling!
Thanks so much LaTeaDah!


Last month I received this pretty yellow rose hankie from Sandra, Ravenhill Cottage. Sandra lives in Canada. Thanks, Sandra, I didn't have one like this in my collection!

Receiving mail is so much fun, especially when it comes from someone you have never met in person! It's also exciting to receive mail from another country!!

Congratulations on your wins! Those are so perfect for you. Anita's heart is gorgeous. Where are you going to put it? And I was excited when you won LaTeaDa's give-away. If I couldn't win it I was happy it was you! The card and hankie are gorgeous. You are so blessed. And to have them all arrive on Valentine's Day? How special. ~Adrienne~
