WHAT A GIFT I HAVE RECEIVED FROM WILLOW AND FIGS..........


My blog posting is usually not about STUFF but I had to post about this wonderful give-away I received from WILLOW AND FIGS.  Marilyn is an incredibly talented artist and an extremely generous lady.  She has an ETSY shop filled with all sorts of wonderful creations.  Please give her a visit.
NOW FOR A LITTLE PEAK AT WHAT ELSE I RECEIVED~~

Beautiful handmade cards.


A wonderful old edition of LITTLE WOMEN...happens to be one of my favorite stories about women.


And if the above is not enough she made this beautiful hand knitted neck scarf.  I don't knit so I am always in awe of anyone who has this wonderful talent.

Also, included, this beautiful thank-you card for following her beautiful blog......as if a thank-you were necessary.

MARILYN,  THANK-YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL TREASURES.  PLEASE BE SURE TO STOP BY TO SEE HER AND TELL HER JO SENT YOU.


Have a beautiful week......friends,

Jo

  18. Sending a sweet hello and thank you from Frog Hollow Farm - I really appreciated that you stopped by my post about the October conservatory!! Your comment was so funny, I realize that you live in a climate that doesn't need to worry about the winter weather like we do in NJ. The room was pretty dysfunctional when we first moved in to the house, but over the years we've worked on it here and there and finally I think we have it functional year round! Congratulations on your winning the give-away! Aren't bloggers the most generous and creative people? The gifts are just wonderful - enjoy them! Ciao, bella!
