A Prize Indeed!

A few weeks ago, I was so very fortunate to win Miss Sandy's giveaway over at Quill Cottage.  I am always so inspired by this lovely soul that I was just thrilled beyond the moon to win a piece of her fabulous art. (Remember, she is the source of inspiration for my "Where I Am From" poem. Here.)

Well, as luck would have it - my prize arrived when I was sick, on strong medication and unfit for civil company.  So, I am dreadfully late in acknowledging my gift and giving thanks.  Thank You, Miss Sandy!

You can see how beautifully wrapped everything was. 
I'm one of those people who like to carefully unwrap packages
and save the paper and ribbon.  Especially when it's as lovely as this! 
Even the tissue got smoothed out and folded for future use.

Miss Sandy tucked in this sweet tag, that is now residing on
the inspiration board in my sewing room.

Aren't her business cards cute!  A nest and a quill; they sum her
up perfectly.  See why I didn't want to rip this package apart?

A beautiful nature journal:
full of color and texture, words and inspiration.

Words of wisdom and the beauty of nature, from beginning to end.

Feathers, buttons and fibers...

Look closer...beautiful words.  A Miss Sandy trademark.

Splashes of red; my favorite accent color.
Here in a feather...there in a leaf.

Fly... My heart soared.

The End...
No, time to start over and see everything I missed the first time through!

Thank You, Miss Sandy!

Thank You too!
To everyone who sent well wishes while I was struggling with health issues.
I'm feeling better and determined to move forward.
I'm back in the studio, so I'll have some cute spring characters to share soon.

Big hugs dear friends,
