{Lovely Mail Surprises}

This past week I have been spoiled each day our grumpy mail man arrives! I feel like it is my birthday when a surprise comes to the door. I have been blessed with RAK’s and Giveaway Winnings from the following talented artists. Thank you so much for brightening my spirits on these cold Michigan days…



This gorgeous heart and tag came all the way from Australia from dear Suzi Q. I was tickled pink to receive her one of kind creations and she had no idea that I also collect hearts. A double bonus. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Suzi! They are amazing!

This lovely beaded set came from a long time “2 Peas” friend Joan. She sent me a message on Facebook that she needed my address and this amazing set came in the mail. Joan remembered from YEARS ago that I adore lighthouses and created this fantastic piece. I *hope* to talk her into creating an Etsy shop to sell her beautiful creations. Thank you Joan for being so sweet and remembering “lighthouses” from our years of being “Pea” friends.


This fabulous necklace was sent to me by Cat Kerr after she informed my I won her blog giveaway! I never win things – so I was totally surprised! What a fantastic piece of art she sent (notice it has hearts too) and I will also cherish it. I have long admired Cat’s work (followed her on Ebay first) and was so honored to receive it. Thank you so much Cat for your kind gift. I love it!

This amazing piece was sent by artist Terri Heinz who also informed me I had one her blog giveaway. A fantastic domino book brimming with delicate details. A truly stunning piece and heirloom. I feel especially blessed to have a piece of Terri’s art because we met in real LIFE in November 2011. She came to my home and also took me to lunch (when I told her about Adele who was singing over the speakers)…thank you so much for your continued friendship and kindness Terri! I am blessed to know you!

And one more wonderful lady to share with you…Laura Robberts is an amazing artist to hails also from Michigan (and right in my neck of the woods)…I had the pleasure of meeting her in real life in September 2009. She is teaching another of her AWESOME classes and she is the ONE and ONLY original creator of these dolls. If you have not taken the course…DO! The instruction is brilliant as is Laura’s talent. I love her to pieces and am blessed to call her my friend too!
