~The Vintage French Hen's Give-a-way~

Oh my Lucky Stars! Look at what I won from Marcia at the Vintage French Hen Marcia and I do not live far away from each other, just right up the road. So Marcia delivered in person her French Give-a-way. It was such a treat and a shear joy to meet her and to spend the day together. This was the day Becky,Marcia and I spent together visiting and sewing banners.

Marcia made many of the gifts and I do love "hand made" to me it's so special to receive hand made. It means that someone took the time, care and thought enough about the gift to create something very loving and original.

I love all the little touches, this sweet box is so pretty I wish you all could see it in person.

The Tussie Mussie is so unique and vintage looking. I just adore it so. There are so many details, I will  try to show you closer up photo's.

Inside the Tussie Mussie were these adorable pink clothes pins! how  darn cute are these. I put them into a crystal bowl and placed them on top of the dryer in the laundry room, now I can see them everyday!Thank you so much Marcia for creating all these lovely gifts (you are a real sweetheart)
If you ever have the chance to meet a blogging friend, I hope you take the opportunity to do so. I have been so fortunate to have meant two of the sweetest and kindest ladies that live so close to me. I have been blessed with their friendship.

Great gifts, Elizabeth. It's wonderful that you got to meet up with fellow bloggers. I hope to do that soon too.
