Beautiful Surprises!

A lovely box sent by Royal Post from the UK arrived on my doorstep today. A totally unexpected surprise sent to me by Joan.

 

I have always been a child at heart, but when that box appeared, I swear I was as excited as a ten year-old on Christmas morning!

Just opening the shipping box was a treat in itself! As I pulled open the box flaps to see the delightful packages nestled inside, I was enveloped in the most delicious fragrance imaginable.

Rachel came to visit!

 

Do you happen to remember my little mashmallow men?

Check this out! Rachel made this "gingerbread" apron just for me! She downloaded the marshmallow men photo from my post, traced it perfectly and embroidered it onto the apron! Just look at those perfect little stitches!

March is a good month to think "green"

March is a great month to focus on "re-purposing", "sustained re-use", and "multi-purposed objects" (objects that multi-task).

 

My favorite "multi-tasking object"...

My embroidery hoop (rescued from a garage sale a few years ago), seen here in its Christmas/Valentine mobile incarnation. If you have an extra hoop lying around that is not currently in use, turn it into a mobile until you need it again. It is so simple to attach a few favorite seasonal objects.
