The Generous Spirit of Bloggers

We are kindred spirits, the artsy bloggers. We share techniques, inspire different styles and offer words of encouragement. We also host the best giveaways!
I've been very fortunate to win two this past week.
Cindy, of Lilly's Lace, is one of my newer blog friends. Her Vintage Wedding Giveaway took my breath away. I opened
this box, to find

all of this gorgeous vintage wonderfulness!!!! And-
she included these adorable dragonfly tealights that change colors!

The other giveaway I happily won was for this beautifully altered faery shoe
created by my dear and most talented friend, Kim, of Tabby's Place. Kim and I had swapped art in various groups for many years before meeting up again in blogland. Isn't her shoe an incredibly magical piece?
And she sent all this along with it!

We recently had an email exchange about how we both love the Magnolia Pearl style. What else is tucked away in this fabulous package? This STUNNING Magnolia Pearl shug! (You really need to forgive my photography skills on this one. Just couldn't capture it no matter how I tried.)

My heartfelt thanks to Cindy and Kim for these lovely gifts!
