Is this pretty or what?
Out of the blue and for no particular reason at all, I received a package from my sweet blogging sister Connie.
If you don't know Connie, she blogs over at Crafty Home Cottage and she is one of the nicest ladies you'll ever meet here in blogland.
She's an expert quilter, crafter, and she's quite handy with a hammer. I always enjoy visiting her blog. She makes me smile and she leaves me inspired.
One of my favorite posts is the one where she shares her Art Barn.
This is where the magic happens! I'd love to have a place like this!
She leaves the most encouraging comments. Some people you just automatically love...
She's one of them!
She made me this Valentine's banner out of drop cloth. I absolutely love it! It's perfect on my new chalkboard, and it fits my style.
So cute! My daughter picked me up some new lights; I like having them on in the evenings.
I think they look good highlighting the new banner.
Connie also made me this pretty apron. She re-purposed a skirt she picked up from the thrift store. A woman after my own heart!
There is nothing like a homemade gift! And I can tell she put some love in it :)
I moved my chalkboard from the dining room to the living room. If you missed it all decked out for Christmas; you can see it here. I'm sure this chalkboard will travel many times.
A huge thank you to Connie for the thoughtful gifts.
I'll treasure these things and think of you when I use them.
I hope my friends here will visit Connie over at Crafty Home Cottage and follow along.
I promise you will make a new friend!
I hope you were inspired!
Thank you for stopping by Thrift My House.
