A nice surprise....

Kim Laws ‘Art Joy Stuff’ shares the most adorable creations she comes up with on her blog.  Kim recently participated in Fishtail Cottage’s One Year anniversary by donating a beautiful ornament to one lucky winner!  But to my surprise, I too received a handcrafted treasure in the mail and was ecstatic to receive such a warm and thoughtful gift!

Part of the fun of receiving such a gift is the lovely wrapping details that went into this unexpected gesture!  The wrapping was done in a McCall’s sewing pattern paper and adorned with a lace ribbon. A handmade Christmas Card with a vintage touch was so pretty.

And the knitted mitten was the cutest addition to our family Christmas Tree

 

So much thought and detail went into this gift from Kim ~ it almost made me cry!
