Mail art and a pretty girl . . .
The past week has delivered such wonderful gifts to my door! First from my daughter Nicole. A package full of vintage goodies. Just look at all these yummy things! Do you see the adorable little aspirin tin? It's no larger than a postage stamp.And the cigar box was full of goodies too, including a little charm for my bracelet.Then yesterday, a decorated cigar box from my buddy e.b. over at Be . . . Dream . . . Play . . .Full of wrapped goodies . . .A journal made up of pictures from her blog and blank papers of all varieties."Don't make it precious," she said,"Write your grocery lists in it."Well, we'll see.It is pretty precious.She also included this little experiMINT packed in a York tin. Look at this adorable stripy stone from Lake Champlain tied in string and sealed with a B. "The strings that bind," I believe she wrote. I love those stripy stones . . .And e.b. has a thing for them too. Look what else came in that box! A stripy stone necklace! This piece was commissioned by Jack before Christmas, and it was a delight to find it among the treasures in my mailbox yesterday.Also yesterday, I had the pleasure of Miss Molly's company for some available-light portrait practice. Good golly Miss Molly! This girl simply cannot take a bad picture. Look at those eyes!
