A Gift From Lisa~

How Blessed I am to be here in this wonderful land of blog...
How Blessed I am to have such a wonderful friend~ I received the most beautiful package in the mail...it brought tears to my eyes, actually it made tears run down my face~ for a long time~ it was from our sweet Lisa ~Tarnished&Tattered
Come Closer...
Look at this beautiful box,

It totally took my breath away~
Lisa is sooo very talented
with a heart the size of Texas~

Look inside this gorgeous box, the lid has the sweetest "rabbits" on it
notice the "Tin" that she put on it...I love it!
But wait!
You've got to see what she packed inside....

Treasures that will make any artist go weak in the knees!
Look at these gorgeous things!!!

Have you ever seen a cuff so beautiful or a baby bonnet was delicate...
and look at the vintage purse...all in my favorite shades of cream & white~

Lisa also tucked in some of the prettiest flowers...love the soft color!

She also included some of her ADORABLE resin pieces...
these are so cute...
I can't wait to use them in my art!

Everything was packaged so pretty
and covered with white buttons~

I will cherish this box forever...it means the world to me,
YOU are my inspiration!!!!

  21. Ann, I do believe that Lisa is one of those rare gems. She can make everyone feel so special. This box of yumminess is such a treasure. You two are such talented artists and I feel so inspired by both of you. I secretly covet your talent (okay, not so secret now) and wish that some of it could rub off on me.hehe
    Thank you for the dear messages you leave to encourage me. They make my day.

  24. My sweet Ann,
    I am so happy that you love your box of treasures! I had such fun putting it together for you. The sheet music I used was perfect to me because you ARE my inspiration. Whenever I'm blocked I go to your flickr page & I just spend countless minutes ohhing & ahhing over it all. You are such a talent & I can't wait to meet you in Sept. & spend some time together. Maybe a little of your talent will rub off on me! Your friend forever, Lisa

  25. Hi

    Many Blessings

  26. What a precious gift sweet Ann!!!! Lisa is such an angel and giving spirit ~ and if anyone deserves these wonderful treasures, it's you....hugs and love, Dawn

  27. God is very busy with the blogs. What blessings to bring people together, to be apart of the community. Your own giving comes full circle, and makes a difference. How perfect, as you "have inspired" many with your talent. Including me. Such a wonderful gift.

  28. I wandered over from Uncanny Festoon :)

    What a special gift you received from your friend. Isn't it wonderful the friends we make in Blogland? I just love the rabbits!

    Wishing you a lovely day,

  29. Oh so gorgeous!!! I love every magical thing Lisa creates!
    Wishing you a lovely day, Ann!

  30. Hello Ann, You recived some beautiful treasures and the box is verry nice also. Have a great Sunday........Julian

  31. I came by to thank you for your lovely comments on my writing post..I really appreciate them..and have stayed to drool over your amazing box of treasure. What an wonderful friend you have in the talented Lisa. I daresay, you are worthy of being showered in such love...


  32. Dear Ann - Marcie at The Rustic Victorian said it best. Our blogs DO bring us all together in a supportive, encouraging Christian community that blesses each and every one of us. And for Lisa to touch your heart and make your day special by sending you that beautiful box, was just another way of passing on her blessings.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment! It blesses me to know there is someone else out there that I can encourage and support...you!
