I have been lucky and blessed to have received a number of gifts from delightful blogging friends. I wanted to share what I could with you all as they are all so fabulous! In part two of this post I hope to introduce you to a new artist that I am thrilled to know. I am keeping my fingers crossed I will have plenty of photos.
Today let's start with Sherry from Creatology!
Sherry sent me a surprise birthday gift of a handmade sachet of lavender!
This origami type folded sachet is so sweet, and the smell is so light and refreshing. Thank you so much Sherry! You can visit Sherry's creative blog at Creatology.
Next are a few Valentine's I received in my mailbox. I think my box was stuffed with over 35 cards! It was delightful to open each one.
Here above is a tea themed Valentine from my blogging friend Jan from A Journey. I love all the sparkly swirlies! I adore the cute little tea cups! Thank you so much Jan for your cheery card! Jan is a wonderful photographer as well as mixed media artist, you can see her lovely blog Here
And look at this lovely Heart Tree card from Mary Beth! She is a Mary Jane's Farm farmgirl just like me! And you can visit her lovely blog at Small City Scenes of Stanwood. I love the 3D effect she created in her gorgeous card!
This sweet one is from Emily Anna, isn't it just adorable! She is also a Farmgirl! The silhouette is fabulous! I am sorry I do not have a blog address for Emily Anna.
And below is one more tea themed Valentine from the talented Linda Adams...
Front of her very sweet envelope, even the stamp is fabulous!
Delightful card inside! This is such a sweet image. I love her addition of flowers.
And the back of Linda's lace doily envelope, it is so lovely!
This is the most romantic envelope I have ever seen!

Thank you so much Jan, Mary Beth, Emily Anna and Linda Adams, as well as all the other friends who sent fabulous cards!
I am totally loving each and every one!
I was totally surprised as well to have come home from Art and Soul to find Dorthe's amazing gift waiting for me!
Everything was wrapped up so sweetly in a linen doilies with a lovely fabric flower. Inside were the lovely bird tag, some oh so very delicate leaf skeletons (totally ethereal!), some beautiful pearl flower stamens, and some pretty green sugared roses you can't really see here. And...inside was also.................
This sweet little sprite! She is only about 5 '' tall, and she is perfection!
Dorthe created this magical little creature with soft fiber hair, shimmery body, and glittery touches all over her body in just the right places ; )
You can visit Dorthe and see her glorious art at Den Lille De Lade.
She needs a name.....
Maybe you all could suggest names for me?
That would be so fun!
Thank you so much Dorthe for your kind surprise!
Well, I have more to share in part two soon. I am feeling very blessed!
Thank you all so much for stopping by!
