A This~and~That Post

First of all, look what came in the mail today!! This sweet lavender bag from Hanna, that I won on her Spring Giveaway. It is just precious, and came all the way from Sweden! I am just overwhelmed with her kindness to send this treasure all that way to me. Hanna, thank you ever so much for this lovely bag; it is so pretty and smells lovely too. Here is a link to Hanna's blog:


Now, some of you agreed that this little lady from yesterday's post needed a bouqet. So I gave her one, vintage of course! I think she is much happier now ....




And last but not least, here's a miniature cottage (found at a yard sale) for my fairy garden ~ which only exists in my mind's eye now, but hopefully will be a reality this summer. I have been *squirreling away* little trinkets for it, here and there. The cottage is shown here with some pansies I bought at the garden center, but have yet to plant.......

I hope you all are having a beautiful spring weekend!

Oh, the fairy garden will be so pretty. Have you tried Lobelias for fairies? I think they like those.

Your fairy garden is going to be charming! What a sweet idea! I'll be looking forward to seeing it take shape. And, I love your goodie you received in the mail, too! Have a good weekend!

Congratulations on your winning the prize sent all the way from Sweden.

The vintage figurine looks very pretty.

P.S. You post comments on my blog site...I always so enjoy them. I would like to ask if you would please link to Robin Sherwood frecklefarm. Even for one month if you would. It is important to spread the word and join hands by linking.

It's just the best getting goodies in the mail isn't it. I get so excited when something is on its way to me. I really like the lavender bag that you won, and the little vintage girl with the parisol and bouquet is so cute. I have a similar looking little cottage that is used for putting a little plant in it. So cute.

I was just reading of "faeri" gardens the other day...I think you are off to a good start.
I'm glad you liked the posy idea and leave it to you to make it vintage!
I'm off to visit your friend that gave you a wonderful gift!

Becca,
That really is a sweet little gift, how nice to get something from so far away.
I really do love the little doll, I think she feels better now that she has some flowers.

Hi and happy April!! You entered a thrift store swap on my Country Pleasures blog last week, I drew names over the weekend so if you could go to my blog and find your partner to start the fun. She has no way of emailing you? Thanks! Your blog is SO cute!!

Love the precious gift from Hanna. The bouquet is perfect for the littler girl. I think the little fairy cottage will be occupied any day now. Who wouldn't want to live in it ;-)
