Happy Mail!

Look what came in my mail last Friday! A package from Denmark.  More specifically a package from Dorthe!  She is SO sweet!  On one of her recent posts I asked if she would be adding her mini driftwood angels to her Etsy shop.  Guess what she did?  She sent me one as a gift!



I should have put a coin in the photo as a reference.  She's just about two inches tall and she's just the cutest thing.  I love strawberries and her tiny dress is covered in them.

She was wrapped in this pretty green edged hanky.


Dorthe included this beautiful handmade card. Her collages are wonderful.  So many layers of papers and fabrics and lace.  A bit of driftwood and a sweet little image add the perfect touch.
The card is a gift in itself!




It's so nice to get something other than junk mail, bills and ads in the mail.  It's so nice to have friends in far-away places.  I can't believe how much has been added to my life because of the land of blogs.  Beautiful handmade creations and even better than that ~ wonderful new friends!!

Thank you Dorthe for these beautiful treasures.  Thank you for your caring heart and thank you for your friendship.  What a blessing it all is!

That is so sweet! People just don't send cards and packages often enough any more! It's so special to receive something like that! I'm glad you did.

Good Morning, Marie,
You are a lucky girl! I love surprise mail, too!! And the angel and card are just precious.

As you know, we were stranded in last weekend's snowstorm. I am getting caught up on my blog reading and commenting. I hope all has been well with you.

Happy Monday ~Natalie
