The first package is from Margie in Canada. Please check out her blog Resurrection Fern if you are not familiar with it already. She is a talented woman with a keen eye for the natural world, unafraid to take risks in her creative work. I ordered this crochet-covered stone from her etsy shop. I love the little flowers around the edge, and the touch of green. The stone is helping me to welcome spring. I felt lucky to get this stone. Margie makes them is small groups, and they sell out quickly after she posts them to her shop.
The second package came from a blog friend in the U.K., Nath of Le Petit Oiseau. She and I decided to do a swap a while back, after admiring each others blogs. Nath is a talented artist, and she makes unique dishware by applying her graphic art to the surface of repurposed vintage dishes. She also has a great eye for vintage finds, which she sells in her online shop. I enjoyed pulling all of these treats out of the box. I really like that little Polish egg cup.
I hope your weekend is off to a lovely start. I'm promised by the weather reports that it will reach well into the 70s F today and throughout the weekend, with lots of sunshine. This is so welcomed! X Maribeth
