i am so lucky




I have been getting the most amazing mail lately. Really, just thinking about it makes me want to cry (I am an emotional girl!). Remember this? And then the things here from Erin and Erica (the package from Erin had all sorts of tiny treasures in it, which I didn't photograph). I also got a package from Sue the day before I moved but I'm saving that one for a little while before I share it.

Yesterday I came home to a package from Karyn in the mail and a package waiting at the post office from Chad. The best part was that despite the fact that one came from a few blocks away and one came from almost a thousand miles away, they were related!

Chad sent me this oh-so-pretty doily mobile, which I hung in the dining room. The delicate little doilies sway and spin so gently. They've caught Oreo's attention a few times.



Karyn sent me this beautiful piece of fabric. I need to make something special with it, or perhaps I will incorporate it into a quilt. I want to look at it every single day.

Thank you, thank you.
