Monday Mail Call

How fast can you type 'BINGO'?
My Primitive and Folk Artists Team on Etsy recently participated in lively game of Bingo.

Brenda of The Rusty Thimble organized the lists and called out words everyday.
The first person to complete their list, was to call out (type) Bingo.
Due to severe storms and several hiccups in the internet service,
there was more than one winner.

For third place, Brenda send a little box of sweet surprises...
A personal note from Brenda...and the cutest packaging...
tissue pattern pieces with homespun ties.
The precious little bundle of dried flowers is the perfect addition to my vintage vase on a shelf, high above Callie's reach.
But there's more...
Brenda's creations are always fabulous.
The handmade strawberry found a home in my basket of vintage crochet cotton in my sewing studio.

And my favorite...the Prim Cow...
She has roamed our kitchen and dining room and seems content in several spots.
Don't you just love the rusty bell on the tip of her tiny twine tail?!

Thank you, Brenda!
It's just perfect.

Here are Brenda's links:

Hey everyone, be sure to stop by and say 'Hi'!

Take care,
~Natalie
