Last week we were without mail for 4 days due to the ice storm. I don't know about you, but I love getting mail. A letter or package addressed to me is love in the mailbox and I was starting to feel starved for affection!
Well, on Friday I was thrilled to get not 1, not 2, but 3 packages in the mail! The warm fuzzies are back.:)
First of all, I received the most wonderful package of goodies from my "little Sis" Elise! Elise and I were partner's in Heidi's Vintage Valentine Swap. Not only did Elise spoil me, but she also spoiled my girls! Here is a picture of Katie wearing the darling valentine apron Elise made for her. She wants to wear it all the time- even while doing Legos with Daddy.:)
Elise knows that I adore birds, so look at this pair of little turtle doves! I imagine that's what they are and I can almost hear them cooing... Look at their sweet faces!
Elise took baby formula cans (she is one creative cookie!) and covered them with scrapbook paper to make darling goodie containers for my girls. There is another pic below... Then she also sent me a glittered cupid and a sweet set of "X" and "O"....
Do you see what I see? Oh my goodness! It is the most gorgeous ruffled apron!! Don't you want one??! Elise is thinking about opening an etsy shop and I am more than ready for her to do so! She knows that I am in love with aprons and so she created this one just for me! yippee! I wear it all the time, even while I blog!:) Love it!
Peanut M&M's.... Darling container, too! It's on my dining room table with the other valentine decorations, but it doesn't seem as full today... hmmm.....
Here is a better picture of the containers Elise made. Are they not precious??! They were filled with candy, too!
This little birdie is sooooo lovely! Elise made it into a tassel for me! Bird+tassel= a very happy Lori.:)
My sweet friend, Tristan, also sent me some love yesterday!! What a complete and wonderful surprise! Look at these darling notepads! Pink and green paisley- my favorite! Thanks so much, Sweetie! I cannot wait to use them!!
Look how she packaged everything! I am loving it! Did you make the darling tag or was this one of Jes's or Jaime's lovely creations?:)
Awhile ago I won a giveaway at Heritage Schoolhouse. Look at the fun calendar! I think Gooseberry Patch is wonderful! Wait until I share the recipes with you... The one for February is chocolate fondue!
My pictures are all wacky lately. Sorry for the mix-up. This is the bounty of treasure that Elise sent me! Look at the darling tags! You know, I have been keeping all the lovely tags that I receive and want to display them in some way. Any ideas?? Elise???
