I will warn you now the following post is photo heavy. I collaged the photos into categories to try to help but I think it might have made it worse. I do however want to thank each and every one that takes time out of their day to send me something in the mail either through the post or via the Internet.
Deb from Garage Sale Gal sent over her darling Friendship banner. I cannot tell you how sweet each detail is. Pictures are not enough. A few sweet extras as Deb is known to do always thrill.
The unbelievably talented Elizabeth from Creative Breathing sent over her Friendship banner. I am certain that her creations could not be reproduced to anywhere near the beauty. Gorgeous.
Erica of the Golden Egg Vintage finds the absolute best stuff at the flea market every single weekend...dang it. I was lucky enough to get an extra copy of a Jr. Rand. She tucked in a few extra goodies and I can't complain they were yummy too.
Laurie also popularly known as Magpie Ethel...sent me a Friendship banner in with one of her spuns that I purchased recently. There is a story here I will save for later, one involving spuns on a slide. Anyway, Peri joins the others with August being my birth month and Peridot the birthstone. Can you believe how cute this banner is on a Shiny Brite board no less.
Leslie of Brookhollow Lane made these gorgeous dolls for her shop on Etsy and I could not resist the vintage linen aprons she added to them. Her work is exceptional. She added in some sweet cards and buttons and a darling pinny already hanging in my studio.
Tammy of Tammy's in Love is such a doll. She never fails to know me better than myself sometimes. Her Friendship banner made its way just as warm as she is. Just a few days later she followed it up with a package that melted my heart. A rubber squeak for my collection. Books, I can't wait to scan for you. That green glass is the same kind my Mamaw used to drink out of and I have been looking for one at the thrift for years. Darling little mending girl who looks like she needs a pincushion to rest on.
Since I cannot stay away from the postman I popped all my Friendship banners in the mail today too. All decked out in thread, thimbles and buttons along with a little note or two.
Thank you for indulging me in sharing my good fortune. My husband loves to kid me by telling me another day another package!
