boxes of fun...

ok, grab something to drink and something to snack on...
here goes...
I am starting with a box from Cheryl at ZanyMayd...
I had bought stuff from her etsy shop months ago...
and it finally arrived...
I had almost forgot what I had picked out...
LOL
this is a large piece of fabric...
a pair of pillow cases...
another pair...
and then a single one...
and another single one...
6 total..
some to keep, some to sell...
a cute little basket that she made...
she just threw that in...
a turkey and nest...
a turtle planter...
pink...
some tart tins...
a cool porcelain pot...
I'm thinking Q-tips...
a little cast iron frog...
so tiny...
I named him Prince...
check this out...
I am not a big fan of pewter...
but I had to have this...
so cool...
and the detail...
now this basket is for my bff...
Rebecca...
I will let her post what's inside...
now, for the box from Lori Lynn...
a pumpkin man...
a raven in a spring...
a witch head...
a scarecrow head...
a really tall pumpkin man...
painted face...
and a crow buddy...
and to make sure we know who he is...
a tag...
homespun fabric is my favorite fabric of all...
the gang...
now, here is the card and seed packs from Lori...
holly hock seeds she posted on her blog that she had harvested out of her garden and was giving away...
so I stuck my comment on there asking for some...
that's all I thought I was getting...
but, there was this big box...
with all this cool stuff in it...
and the nicest thank you card...
for something that I was led to do months ago...
just between me and Lori...

was I surprised...
she didn't make these fun things...
but she had them and used them and then changed her mind and is going in a different direction...
she was going to list them on ebay and then thought of me and my style of fun...
knew these guys would fit right in here...
and they do...
perfectly...
thank  you, girl!

almost the only fun I had yesterday...
whatever I had...
phew...
it passed...
pun intended...
feel a little slow today but up, dressed and kicking- just not high...

you all have a good day...
I've got stuff to do...

Lovely stuff, I like that pewter dish, too.

It is raining here, today, so I'm playing in the bedroom, hope to be through so we can go to bed tonight.

Great pillowcases, but I really love the Lori Lynn's stuff. That crow in the spring is very cool.

Holy cow- You hit the Mother lode...or TWO Mother lodes! Wow! Love all your stuff you bought..glad you got it and that you like what you got! How nice of the seller to throw in a little extra for fun. And that Lori that sent you all that homespun stuff...well, ya gotta love a gal like that!

Glad you are feeling better tonight, Tete. I just got home about 1/2 hour ago. I left the house just after 5AM...worked, ran errands, had to pick MyHero up after he dropped his car off...had SweetCheeks for 3 hours, went to a meeting, grabbed a bite to eat and need to get my butt to bed. 4AM rolls around quickly. Two more days this week! xo Diana

What a great post! All your new 'friends' look right at home. So glad I let you adopt them and give them a forever home :-) I'll have to send you a pic of the one I couldn't bear to part with even though he doesn't fit my style anymore. You will drool!

Love ya lots!

Hello Tete,
you found beautiful things...love the pillowcases so very much.
I was confused by your comment you left on my blog but honey, you don't have to follow my blog...it is okay...we should only follow the blogs we want to.
