Monday Mania ~ My Mailbox Overfloweth

Yes...it looks like the mailman has been here...

I guess he's trusting that it is not going to rain...
and that no one is going to steal my packages!

OFG Kitchen Swap
Because I have been occupied at my mom's,
I am a bit behind on reporting about my wonderful gifts.
But, I certainly do appreciate each and every item...
Yesterday's package was from Sue at Rabbit Hollow Prims.
She was my OFG Kitchen Swap partner...and she certainly outdid herself.
I received three vintage kitchen utensils...a ladle, an antique honey server, and an apple corer.
Also included...a prim Santa and Calico Kitty.
Three recipes rounded out this package...
Thank you, Sue.  You make me smile.

DeniseYesbakMoore Bead Give Away
Last week...my package was from Denise Yezbak Moore.
I was one of seven winners in her fabulous bead give-away.
She makes beautiful jewelry and was sharing her wonderful beads...
I can't believe I was lucky enough to win...
I am anxious to see how hubby incorporates these beads into his bottle necklaces.
Thank You, Denise.


OFG Supply Swap
This spring my Etsy Team, the Old Farmhouse Gathering, hosted a Supply Swap.
I was honored to be paired with Jody, our team facilitator.
She sent such sweet items...
It was just the inspiration I needed after spending those long days in the hospital.
Thank you, Jody.
You've sparked my creativity!

Always Crafty Pattern Give Away
Also, in May, I was the lucky winner of a pattern give-away by Sandi, a talented doll artist.
I'm pretty excited to get back into my sewing studio
and create one of these Shweet Americana Raggedy Annies.
There is nothing better than getting a package in the mail...
You all have really made my day!
Thank you!!


Take care,
~Natalie

Indeed, there is nothing better than getting treats in the mail. I am so excited, Natalie - your parcel just arrived an hour ago! Such an array of treasures you've sent, and so many..thank you for your generosity! How appropriate is the birthday confetti, when I've just had mine? The spoon rest is beautiful..love the flower theme altogether with the pretty notes and little clipboard, and as soon as I can have the house to myself, I'm going to try the masque, and have some 'me' time!

I particulary like the vintage book. I'm sitting here chuckling at its old-fashioned style, and its helpful market lists. Some of the recipes, like 'Toad-In-The-Hole', take me right back to childhood...this is too much fun!

If it's okay, I'd like to take a few photos and post them on my blog tomorrow, with a link back to you. For now, I wanted to let you know that everything has arrived safely.I really appreciate how much thought you put into this giveaway, especially when your time and energy have been needed elsewhere. Thank you again...I'm delighted to have you as a new friend...
