What I got in the mail..... (thank you Sandy)

I know I told you all I was going to do this days ago... What can I say?  Life happens. :)
Anyway, I really wanted to share with you all,  the beautiful package that arrived on my doorstep a couple days after returning from PA. When sweet Sandy told me she wanted to send me a little something in the mail to say thank you for her blog design, I was cool on the outside and jumping up down for joy on the inside. Sandy's style is so totally amazing and exactly the kind of stuff that I love so much.
The box was filled with goodies that were so beautifully packaged that,  although I am sure they were meant to be used as art supplies, I find myself wanting to just display them in my studio just as they are. They are little works of art in themselves.

She wrapped the ribbon not on a plain card but 
on a pretty silver frame.

There was vintage ephemera, music paper, and a pretty silver spoon filled with buttons.

The silver tray is filled with all sorts of sweet tidbits of vintage goodness. Can you see the little cone attached at the top???? It's tiny!!! The generosity of the women in Blogland is such an amazing thing! If you haven't been over to visit Sandy's blog Quill Cottage please go over and say hi. You will not be disapointed!!!

Karen, Sandy has a most generous heart and spirit. And you did a beautiful job on her new blog format.

What a lovely package - a beautiful blog design, too!

I was looking thru the current issue of Somerset Studio when I saw a charming Christmas shadow box, I quickly turned to the list of supplies to see if I have the right goodies and then thought, "I know who designed this!", sure enough - I turned back to read the designers name - congratulations!
