It is always fun to open my mailbox (we receive our mail in a box at the Post Office - which is right across the street from the store) - and find a yellow card letting me know there is a package waiting for me!! Today two packages came from Terri Leamer of The Olde Button Tin! Could hardly wait to get to the store to open them.....I never know what I am getting from most of our crafters...they just know me and know what will make our store special - (I am a very lucky storekeeper indeed!) Here's some of Terri's creations....two prim pillows, hand appliqued and stuffed with olde cotton stuffing !
Peeps, peeps and peeps.....one sitting on top of a calico egg - neat make-do~~~~The vintage doily has a peep embrodiered in the plain linen circle...
.....and a Hen pincushion....Terri has her own way of aging her creations....they always look so olde but well kept...a strawberry "emery" is hung from her neck and the tailfeathers are olde straight pins...!!!
AND what a nice surprise I received today....from Joanne of http://snippetsandscrapsandpieces.blogspot.com/ Joanne read my blog yesterday and decided to "cheer" me up with a very special "zinc canning jar lid" since two of mine were ...ah....let's say "misplaced" !! Isn't it the sweetest!! I am going to keep it right on my counter at the store - it will get plenty of use!! Thanks again Joanne - I l ove it!
Today was very much a true March day.....very windy...had to take down the hanging slateboard from the porch and the Easter decorations so they didn't blow away ~~ the sun was shining all day so all was good!
