Christmas is definitely a time of giving
and just to show you how much bloggers love to give
I'm going to share a few things which have
arrived with the postie in the last little while!
Firstly from Lynne Moncrieff of Adorn at
sent this most elegant card.
I can't tell you how much work has gone into the creation of
this little sweetheart card!
covered in snowflakes, papers, lace, and a flower
embellished with this beautiful cut out tassel!
Thank you so much dear Lynne - it's gorgeous!
Lynne makes the most amazing collaged cards and wall hangings
and has the biggest stamp collection that I know of!
From Lynn Stevens (another Lynn)
came this beautiful Christmas decoration
accompanied by this pretty cotton lace.
I was lucky enough to receive this as part of a
most generous Giveaway held recently!
Wasn't that just the sweetest gesture from Lynn!
Thank you again dear friend.
I'd like to show you this!
I won one of two prizes given away by Marie at
The contents of
Fairy Whispers was going to be a surprise for the winner
and it certainly was when I opened the lid of the tin
to discover its contents - including some vintage buttons, a medal,
small assorted trinkets and numbers
as well as beautiful soldered items
all designed and created by Marie herself.
Marie has such a talent for these soldered charms
like no one else I know. What do you think of
this little Christmas soldered charm ornament
and this little bottle containing a tiny rosebud,
beads and German glitter with
the incredible soldered lid?
Oh Marie I love each one - they are all so beautiful!
and, without having to mention, as Marie knows
that I collect these gorgeous cabinet cards of women,
she has included yet another for me.
Also included were some ephemera pages of
French and German text.
Am I not a lucky girl or what???
Marie I just can't thank you enough for such a gift!
It feels so good to have your luck turned around,
after a pretty hard run this year,
especially by people like Marie, Lynne and Lynn.
I feel so blessed by these women so please go and
pay them a visit by clicking on their links!
Just a little peek at my Christmas vignette which I will
share with you in just a few days time
as Christmas Eve rapidly
It's a totally candle lit night!
Instead of holly we have gum nuts in our vignettes
because it is a hot dry land here Downunder
Love and hugs, Suzy
