Surprise Birthday Package

I received the most wonderful surprise from a bloggy friend, Maria, last week. It was a parcel to celebrate my birthday. Maria doesn't have a blog, but we have discovered we have so many things in common - besides the love of stitching - we've become fast friends. I must say, I was so touched.

Isn't the mouse pin cushion adorable?! I saw those on one of the blogs I follow and had thought I must make one for myself - Maria - you saved me a lot of time and angst ;0). The cupcake tin, clips and tiny zippered bag are so sweet - HA! - get it?

Because we live on a farm, Maria saw the cutest farm animal erasers (once again - ADORABLE!), the apple ornament is perfect (we have an orchard). I LOVE ribbon - look at the spool she sent!!

Three colorful postcards and some "Forget-me-not" seeds that will be planted next year.

This lovely card - complete with a Tinker Bell charm (I LOVE Tinker Bell, don't you?).

And last, but not least, this darling tea pot mini-chalk board. I've never seen anything like it.

Maria, you touched my heart. I can't thank you enough for brightening my day.

  3. Such a lovely surprise for you! I must admit to not being a fan of Tinkerbell (she was always too snooty for me LOL) but the charm is just adorable! Those little animal erasers even more so~ :D
