Mail Time!

Mail Time!
Here's the mail it never fails, it makes me want to wag my tail, when it comes I want to wail... Maaail!
(Ok, maybe I've been watching too much Blues Clues...)

Loving the mail these days! First I must show you what I bought from Lisa's new blog shop... 
It came last week but I haven't had a chance to post much lately as I have been under the weather.  I just love her work and I couldn't resist her collage wall hanging.

And this sweet little childs cup and I also got some shredded music paper.

But sweet girl that Lisa is, she also included this wonderful old brush with my initial on it as a gift. Thank you Lisa... I love it!

I love her eye for detail, look at the card she made and sent it as a wonderful gesture.


I love the little bird in the dome with buttons and lace... it doesn't get much better than this!
 You will want to check out her blog shop and blog if you haven't been there, she is amazing~

Since it was just Mother's Day, I have to tell you I had such a nice day with half of my brood. I am so blessed with beautiful children inside and out. They are good to their mama. My oldest daughter lives in WA.  She of course helps with the shop and has a great eye. She sent me a wonderful mother's day gift that I want to share, because I know you all will appreciate this.

Wrapped in an old wallpaper box with great creamy lace and millinery!

A beautiful handmade box with everything I love...

And also a handmade card... 

Inside is just as yummy... love these creamy old spools and...

a gorgeous Art Deco necklace... but that isn't all!

Look at this creamware... just the right color and so quaint.

 Does she know her mother or what... thank you Sweetie!
But I am not finished, I will not go through all of my gifts but I do have to show you one other.
It is from "the Boy" as he calls himself. 
It is too great not to post...

This handmade flower was on top of the box with pink paper, yes he made it... sweet boy!

Look at this! An antique miniature printing press!
Is that great or what...

He put a stamp in it to try it out and we printed these cards. It has a roller that goes over the disc and then inks the stamp just like a big press. I will have fun with this little gem. And I have to tell you he also went to Border's and bought out all the WWC magazines that I am in and gave them to me, so I could do a collage or something he said. I have to say I feel a little spoiled this mother's day. 

Wishing you a great week and many blessings.

  10. Rebecca,
    I wrote this long ol 'Rose' comment & my dang laptop went dead. That's what I get for being so long winded. Oh well, draft 2. You son is DARLING, that flower is the cutest. Look at him making a paper flower like Mom, & the printing press, well everyone else said it all , but...I would have done a happy dance. & it works too!! Very awesome. Your sweet girl, well just know that she must also be a lover of vintage & cream. No one else could have put together such a perfect box of treasures.
    I hope your feeling better friend. I'm glad you had a wonderful holiday. Lisa
