Lovely gifts from Lovely Friends

Hi Bloggerettes!  Blogger image loading is giving me fits this morning.  But I 'm determined to get my photos on here so I can show you the goodies that I received this week.

This beautiful package with a hand written note, is from LuLu, at Coastal Sisters.  The note says that she made this especially for me
and of course it had to be pink!  Still curious??? Sure????

Isn't this the most gorgeous necklace that you have ever seen!!!!! I squeeled, screamed, laughed, oohed and awed and did a happy dance and then tears started falling.  I was blown away and so touched that she would send me this gorgeous piece of art!  All for little ole me!  Thank you so much LuLu, words cannot express just how much I appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness.

My hubby took this picture and didn't notice that my necklace was crooked until I uploaded them so.......

This gorgeous cameo even makes this ole broads neck look good!
It's magical, it's lovely and it's all mineeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Does she know me or what????
Many of you already know LuLu and follow her blog.  And you know that she is beautiful, smart, talented and fun, fun, fun.  She has two sides to her lovely self.....there's that sweet little girl and then there's Lucrecia, the somewhat sinsister side of LuLu. Go over and meet her and you'll see what I mean.

She creates the most beautiful jewelry that is as unique and lovely as she is.  She has just recently featured some of her newest pieces on her blog that you won't want to miss.  You will be dazzled, I promise!
I first met LuLu when I joined Etsy Cottage Style.  She has supported me and my etsy shop and has inspired me from the very beginning.  Thank you LuLu, you rock!

Here's the other package I received this week.  Wow, I must be doing something right with the man upstairs!!!!
This one came from Dorthe at Den Lille Lade.  Dorthe is a mixed media artist and runs a shop filled with handmade dolls, mixed media collages, home decor, shawles from Nepal and a mix of Danish and French style.  She lives in Denmark and she is as pretty as a picture and as sweet as can be.
This lovely collage is filled with bits of lace, snips from books, buttons and's sooooooooooooooo pretty.
I love it Dorthe! 

Look at this little nymph.  I love her.  See her little purse with my name on a music note.  Isn't that the cutest thing ever!  I adore her
Dorthe, and I adore you!

I first met Dorthe when I won her giveaway.  She sent me the loveliest doll that I have ever seen.  After meeting her and seeing her blog, I was hooked.  If you don't know her, now's a good time to go over and introduce yourself.
Thank you so much Dorthe, I will cherish my lovely gifts forever my friend!

See, I told you I was really blessed this week.  Of course, I feel blessed everyday to have all the wonderful love and support from each and everyone of you.  I love you all so much!

Hi Sissie,
How sweet that your friends both sent you such lovely gifts. I love, love, the pink cameo from Lulu, it's precious. It looks perfect on you. What a pretty collage Dorthe made just for you. And the sweet little nymph, well she just made me smile! Thank you for visiting me today and leaving your kind comment on my post for "WHITE WEDNESDAY...” I really shouldn't have posted that and was disappointed with myself once I did. I was tired and not prepared; hopefully next week will be better. I hope you had a wonderful day!
