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!
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
