Treasures in the Mail

Last week I admired some pendants that Libby Mills posted on her blog. She emailed me and offered to send me a handful of bead frames to play with. They arrived today, and included a finished pendant that Libby made. Isn’t this a great little treasure to have arrive on my doorstep? Thank you so much, Libby! I love the double-sided pendant (I’m wearing it right now!) and I can’t wait until I have an opportunity to play with the bead frames. I’ll be sure to show you what I make.

As an aside, when I went to Libby’s site to get the correct link for her post, I saw this. Please excuse my while I wipe the drool off of my keyboard.

Another treat that showed up today was my Etsy purchase from Whimsy Love. It’s a ring made of vintage buttons, and I have thought it was cute since the moment I saw it. I finally splurged and bought it for myself. I thought it would match my new apron. It doesn’t, unfortunately, but I don’t think anybody is paying that close attention, anyway 😉 This box included a bunch of goodies, too, from the hand-made ring box to the cute little cupcake tag. Son #2 was watching me open the package and when I took out the cupcake tag, he said “I think that one’s for me.” Heh. Nice try, kid. I don’t know if you ever read this, but thanks, Nikki, for the fun little touches you included – you put my packaging to shame!

I am thinking that the UPS guy may bring me another happy treat today, but he doesn’t usually get here for another 2 or 3 hours. I ordered some more fabric to play with… I’ll be getting a few more Amy Butler Lotus designs, but this time in the blue/sand colorway. I also ordered some of the Heather Bailey Fresh Cut line, and Anna Griffin’s Elsie’s Kitchen. I want to make a few more aprons, which I’ll likely give as gifts, but even more than that right now, I’m eager to get my hands on the fabric so I can mix up some custom clay colors and make matching buttons. Mmmm. Coordination.

  1. That ring looks super cute on yer finger girl!! I love what your son said!!! Hilarious! Oh, bummer that it doesn’t match your apron!
    Isn’t getting packages fun!? I love knowing I have sweet gifts arriving!!

  2. Son #1 came home from school today and say “oh, cool!” when I showed him my ring. And he meant it… he’s been known to wear even *bigger* rings than that on his little fingers, and they’re all these plastic fake jewel things – I have taken to calling him Liberace 😉

  3. I’m glad you liked the pendant! I am looking forward to seeing what you can make with the frames.

  4. Me too 🙂
