I received a really lovely package today from A2K!
We have many things in common that we both like.
Everything was so pretty wrapped in tissue papers and ribbon!
You can see the paper and ribbon in the first photo.
Here are some photos of everything.
For local she send postcards of the upper peninsula of Michigan and a pasty recipe! I've heard of these, but have yet to have an authentic pasty.
Michigan is really beautiful!
She sent some blueberry jam (local - made in the UP), an adorable pincushion (collecting), and she made me (crafted) two ADORABLE zip pouches! I had a bit of the jam and its really good!
One of the things she collects is pincushions.
The pincushion is really sweet and the pins are so cute! I really love the fabrics you chose for the zip pouches! So cute! And so well made too.
She sent some yarn (craft supplies) in really yummy colors, some pretty blue beads (craft supplies) and a vintage Happy Home (collecting) needle book! This is really neat! And so well preserved. The inside is really lovely too and I took a photo to show that as well.
Some of her favorite sewing necessities: sewing machine needles (always needed!), some stick on thimbles and the CUTEST little scissors ever! What a great idea for stick on thimbles! I can't wait to try those out.
And the scissors are adorable!
One of the things she collects is scissors and she loves these!
I can't wait to try them!
She made me a bookmark for her reading hobby, a prayer journal (closer to home) and some of her favorite teas (fav foods).
I love bookmarks and will get a lot of use out of this! And I look forward to trying these teas!
She embellished the journal with my name and the cute birds from the bird fabric she used for the zip pouches and a really cute rooster on the back which I forgot to take photos of.
She also started the journal for me by putting in some of her favorite prayers and scriptures.
What a great idea to have a place to write all my favorite verses! And in such a cute journal! Thank you!
You sent such thoughtful things that reflect both you and things I love too.
Thank you so much for everything!
