Treasures from Sweet Friends

First of all, thank you so much to Penny at Lavender Hill Studio for nominating me for the "Nice Matters Award". Isn't that a pretty award? It's easy to be nice, you all are such lovely friends!


I received the sweetest package from Heather at Speckled Egg! I won this adorable pink goodie bag ~ it is filled with all sorts of wonderful little treasures that sparkle and glitter! Can you see the little ballerina, and the millinery flowers? It's fun looking at it, let alone when I begin using it!! Thank you, Heather!!


And here are the pretty pink and silver cards and tags I received from my swap partner Cheryl.
I hope you can see the precious vintage images!
(Also note the cute little pink birdie!!)







Look at this adorable box she made as an additional surprise for me! It is pink and fluffy and sweet, and has my initial on it! I love it! Thank you so much, Cheryl!!




Also, Cheryl has recently tagged me to play "fours", so here goes:
