Special Delivery

Some days I go out to the mailbox and find something has been delivered. Last week I saw a rather soft and puffy envelope from Doni at Faith, Grace, and Crafts. 
This package is what came out of the envelope. In her post she shared a piece of her art work that she created with some of her collections. Then, with some of the "leftovers"--laces and trims, buttons and ribbon--she made up a give away! My name was selected as the winner.
What a treasure I received!!
I counted 38 pieces and that is not including the buttons, the pin cushion or the miniature cards with Bible verses on them.
Isn't it wonderful? I know I will eventually be using every bit someday (in my retirement) to try and make something similar to Doni's piece, but for now, I'm thinking the joy is coming from the eye candy value.

This is part of Doni's lovely work. You will find her post if you click on the picture or her name.
Please go enjoy the beauty!
Doni, thank you so much!

Oh how lovely! :) I'm sure you'll make something wonderful out of it...and I bet it will be sooner than later!
Thanks for your sweet comment on my dining room....and you're right, those walls too, some serious math time, but OH SO worth it!! The math was actually the hardest part...the rest of the time was spent running back and forth cutting wood and nailing it up. Not hard...mind numbing. :) lol
Enjoy your last few weeks of's gonna be a great summer!
