My Mail From Lalaland Has Arrived!

Hello my dear friends,

this morning the postman brought me something special. It was mail from Lalaland aka England. I had won Liz's giveaway and now my gifts are here!! YAY!! (at last our postal strike is over).

I can hardly wait to open this and look at everything!

Everything is so pretty and neat - some beautiful lace and rickrack and a very lovely decorated tag!

The canvas is so lovely!!!
I will have to find a special place for it in my craft room to display it.

And last but not least ...

I just wanted to share a few other things that made me smile in the last few days...

I have the neatest daisies in my front yard! I just love how the petals look like they are frayed!

Such lovely flowers!

I have shown you pictures of one of our cats before but I don't think I have ever shown you our "baby".
Iris is our second cat and she belongs to my daughter Caylagh. She is just over 2 years old now but still such a kitten.

When Iris is tired, she will lay down and cover her eyes with her paw so the light doesn't bother her and once she is fast asleep she looks like this...

... just like a baby kitten!

I hope you all are well.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
