Another great mail day...

I am one lucky girl! A while back I won a drawing on Noel's blog, an amazingly generous giveaway... just because.

First of all - before I even get to the contents - the box itself is BEAUTIFUL! Then the treasures inside the box...

She included some of her hand painted buttons

As well as a really cute cup cozy

Next ... some beautiful fabrics

A really neat tile

An awesome doll form

How about these paints? I'm so excited to play with these!

And last but certainly not least... this absolutely beautiful Icicle doll

Make sure you click on the photos for a larger view.

Thanks so much Noel - you made my week that much more special with your thoughtful package. I appreciate it so very much, you're the best too!

Okay I finally got my computer to let me leave you a message. I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog. Also I have enjoyed reading your blog. I love the icicle doll that you got, she is so cute & creative.

Lucky girl ! Enjoy !

Wow Grace. Maybe you're on a winning streak and will win my giveaway too!!! I love that black and white swirl fabric - I've got a whole collection of that swirl pattern - it makes for great folk art quilts. You also are the lucky recipient of one of Wild Girl's funky big lipped creatures - too cool. I've been itching to try something like one of those little dolls - maybe when I get home from the Quilt Festival I will be inspired.
I love visiting your blog way out there in the heartland.
Talk to you soon!

You give so much of yourself dear Grace I am SO happy to see you receiving so much love in the mail.

It must feel like Christmas every time the mailman comes! (I know the feeling).

I DO have wonderful blog friends, I consider myself so very fortunate.

It brings such light and warmth into my life... not only through the treasured packages that have been generously sent, but also through the friendship and support that freely flows in the comments and emails generated from blog posts.

I appreciate each and every one.
