Pssst.... have you heard? Becca got a present!!

LOOK!! It's a beautiful bluebird and roses plate from Lori!! She wrote to me and said she had the perfect plate for me ~~ She wasn't kidding! The colors on the plate are so soft and it has a sweet little bluebird in the center. She also included this bluebird of happiness!!

But that's not all! Lori made this folder, decorated it especially for me in my favorites of blue and pink....

.... and enclosed were some lovely vintage cards featuring -- what else -- BLUEBIRDS!!

Lori, thank you so much; I can't even describe how touched I am by your generosity! Oh, and everything was so beautifully wrapped, but of course I tore into it too fast to get a picture of that! You can see the pretty ribbons she used though!! :)
And the little birds in the first photo? They are vintage mica birds, a purchase from eBay that also arrived today. I bought them with every intention of using them in my projects. Think they'll ever make their way into them, or think they'll move in with me? ;)

Thanks for visiting my blog today and leaving such kind words. I don't have anything listed in my shop yet...check back in a couple of weeks. I'm working on several projects and will post on my blog.
Thank you again. PS Love your blog.

Oh my goodness, what gorgeous gifts Lori gave to you! Each thing has a perfect detail of love and design! She certainly knows what you like! :o)I am also thrilled to see the mica birds. I had two as a child that hung on our Christmas tree. Sadly they just didn't survive the years. I would love to have some again. Maybe I can find some on ebay too. Blessings!

Thank you for stopping by my blog at cutepinkstuff.com! Sweet birds! Sometimes it is difficult to let go of cute things we love. Sometimes, I buy two so I can sell one and keep one for myself! Sad commentary, but satisfying! LOL!

They're all just adorable! I especially love the little vintage bluebird cards. Think I might have some similar that I found in my mother's house.

That is the sweetest bluebird gathering I have ever seen. Lori is very generous. How sweet. Those little birds need to stay together, with you of course, winter is coming and they need to huddle for warmth!
