Special Gifts

Good morning! We got some freezing rain and even a little snow last night, so it's an exciting morning at our house.
Gifts
I received a surprise package from my friend, Anita at My Country Cottage Garden a few days ago. A pretty card, an assortment for German teas and best of all a new lavender filled heart!

As you can see, Anita does beautiful work.

What a sweet little heart! Wow, seems like everyone is getting snow across the U.S. Okay, well not in California. We got 2 inches yesterday but it melted pretty quickly by the afternoon. :)

I hope everyone down there and across the Midwest stays safe with all the ice-- it's beautiful, but can be so destructive.

Your little heart is so pretty. I popped over to Anita's site and wow is she talented!!!

Yours looks so lovely on your hutch:)
