A Little Purchase I Made....

This will be a quickie post but I'll be back later to share some art. First off, I re-did my blog list....finally! I hope I didn't leave anyone out! I also did some other rearranging on my blog and sort of cleaned things up a bit. Whew!! After all that cleaning I think I'll have to wait to do the house!! (I'll use any excuse I can come up with!)
********************************************

I want to share with you something that arrived in my mailbox recently. My blog friend, Nydia lives in Brazil, has just moved into a new home, and has the most adorable little boy named Lucas. (I'm in love with him!) I have been reading her blog for awhile now but had never noticed her Etsy shop link. Sometimes I'm just not too quick! Well, when I finally learned she had a shop I went right over and took a peek....and found something wonderful to buy. I hope you visit her shop (here) too.

When the package arrived not only was my purchase there but Nydia and Lucas had included some other things too.

This handmade card from Lucas....


He also sent me a little bookmark he made but I forgot to get a picture of it.

And Nydia sent me this card....



Now here's the item I bought from her....inside this little pouch....



this set of runes....all handmade using felt and embroidery!!



Her work is just amazing! Each one is perfect. And the embroidery is done in lavender! Thank you, Nydia and Lucas!!
