Thank You!

As our family digs out of this Northeast blizzard, we can reflect on all our good fortune.  We've managed thus far without losing power (thank God!) and are safe and sound.  There's a mountain of snow in the corner of our front yard, brought on by all that plowing.  I'm sure the kids will be sledding in it tomorrow.
It is truly beautiful outside - a winter wonderland, which I'll be certain to take photos of to share with you.
There's a lot to be thankful for, including friendships with many of you!
That said, I must share some recent goodies I received from talented bloggers.  Sweet Donna of My Shabby Chateau sent me one of her french-inspired peat pots.  She knows how much I love blue (sharing the love of that color with her), and this one has such terrific detail!  Read more about it here:

To see more of her delightful peat pots, take a look at this post.
And look how sweetly it was wrapped!:
Thank you Donna!

Another yummy package arrived recently in the mail from Rosemary of Villabarnes.  I purchased one of her unique metal crowns and it is fabulous!!

Rosemary also included this lovely clay cameo. Isn't it beautiful?  I can't wait to use both of these for an upcoming project I'll be sharing.  Stay tuned...

The creative talent of these ladies knows no bounds.  I can say that for so many of you friendly bloggers!
Thanks so much ladies - I am blessed!

Glad to hear that you survived the storm, and still have power, Susan! I had so much fun making the peat pot for you, I'm thrilled that you love it! Rosemary is amazing, isn't she? The crown is beautiful, and that cameo is gorgeous! Keep warm & safe!
