Mail Call!


You all know how much I LOVE Mail Call -- especially when there are surprises.
This week has really been a lot of fun.




The first to arrive was this lovely piece of Mail Art from my friend, Sharon, at WildflowerHouse. It was a complete surprise, almost too pretty to open, but I did and this is what was inside.


This wonderful bookmark. Sharon is very talented. She's an artist in many media and her needlework is just gorgeous.




The back of the bookmark with this quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
"I feel we are all islands in a common sea."
Sharon knows my love of books and that I'll treasure and put this bookmark to good use.
I promise!

Next to arrive -- this beautiful necklace.
I won Kate's (Shibori Girl) Mad Hatter Give-a-way and what a lucky girl I am.
I wore it all day yesterday and just love it.


The flower pendant is made from individual slices of petal and leaf polymer clay canes. The brass chain is embellished with pretty Alice-blue Swarovski crystals. The chain is 18" long.




Polymer clay is Kate's new obsession and boy, am I glad it is!

Be sure to drop by and visit these two very talented ladies, fellow bloggers and friends of mine. You'll be glad to make their acquaintance!
Say Hello from Me!

Have a wonderful day.

Joy to You!

Even the envelope is art! Gotta love that! And why do I always get hungry when I see your Teacup Tuesday posts?

Snap! Certainly is an exciting week! I am so sorry for not writing to you sooner! I received the books and the wonderful cards- THANK YOU! I have been so busy working and juggling the kids being home for the summer that I don't have much of my own time! Please forgive me. I plan to send a thank you soon, but until then, enjoy your other mail! Lots of love. Patricia
