On sat. I received a package in the mail from Rebecca Ernseld of Illinois.
She had a giveaway and picked three winners and I was one of the lucky three. I know that I should always take a pic before but I never think of it until I have ripped open the package and oohed and awed over the contents then it is too late to wrap it back up. This package consisted of a beautiful heart edged in old lace, a vintage packet of buttons, a spool of pink grosgrain ribbon and an old silk flower that cold be worn as a pin and it was wrapped in some lovely wire edged ribbon that I can use.
I took the rose and pinned it into the center of the lace I had just sewn onto the 2 sofa pillows and it looked so pretty but would not be very practical for company trying to sit down near it. It will be used elsewhere or used as a pin on a summer outfit.
You must go to rebecca's blog like I did yesterday. She has done some remodelling of her office/workroom and she has some great ideas. Note the books and pictures on the walls held by wire. Also on her blog she showed a very pretty heart pillow she had received from Dorthe and Dorthe had made a hanging cord out of old pearl buttons. Well last night I grabbed a tube of old buttons and sat and made a hanging cord for mine. I will take a pic tomorrow and show you how cute it looks. I will get a little crystal knob from somewhere and hang it upon that.
Her blog is shown on the postcard that she enclosed with the gift and I have taken a pic with it. Please go visit her - you will be glad you did.
Also I have shown a piece of lace picked up at the market yesterday and 1 glove probably from a wedding. It is a longwrist length glove made out of a beautiful fabric. The other piece can be used for a Christmas stocking, cone, etc. I have more to show tomorrow.
