Fun Goodies From Blogging Friends...

I received some wonderful goodies this week from some sweet blogging friends!   My friend Cindy of Her Whimsical Musings sent me a surprise Valentine card that she made!  Cindy has her wonderful blog, as well as a lovely etsy shop and a new online weekly magazine !  Stop by and visit her creative places...

It's so cute and the tag is removable!  It was such a fun surprise!  Thank you SO much Cindy!!

I also had a couple of giveaway wins!  I think I need to quit entering for awhile...I have been lucky lately!  I won this adorable Valentine tag in a fun giveaway sponsored by Vicki  at Rusty Rooster Vintage !  Vicki has a wonderful creative blog and if by some chance you haven't discovered her yet, you need to stop by!  The tag was made and donated by Kim ~I have really enjoyed getting to know her!   She has a wonderful etsy shop called  Birds Eye View by Kimbals ~ it's full of charming Valentine tags right now!  Thanks so much Vicki and Kim!

I also received the most wonderful giveaway win this week from sweet Sharon of  My Vintage Studio !  At the top of the package were some of her beautiful tags!  I have purchased several of her wonderful tags from her etsy shop and they always look wonderful on my packages!

She wrapped everything so beautifully in vintage pattern pieces and silky pink ribbon...

Look at this lovely old hand painted plate...

There were lovely old postcards...and OH... the vintage millinery flowers...

such sweet linens, and this lovely petite is one of my favorites...

and finally... this beautiful old book with a charming chromolithograph on the cover...

I just love it all, Sharon... I can't thank you enough!!  I hope you will stop by her etsy shop and blog and say hello from me!
Thanks again to all these lovely much creative talent out there!

Until next time...
