Beautiful gifts

Where does the time go? I seem to be running way behind again, must be the time of the year with Holiday prep, working and a few special projects in the works time has just slipped by me.
But I just had to share the most wonderful gifts from my dear friend
Liz at Lululiz In lalaland
Sent me for my Birthday.
Just look at all these beautiful things!
Vintage tart tins from France. The embossing is unbelievable
Some mop buttons in a sweet hand made envelope
and a darling Frozen Charlotte doll.
Oh and its all sitting on two beautiful doilies!

Next came a package of vintage Ephemera. I believe its all French.
and one of Liz's famous tags. She sends one with all her orders on her Etsy site.
If your looking for unique vintage things from France its a must see!
You can find her site here. LaCroix Rosion

Now what on earth can this be? An old metal tin. hum?????

Holy Cow, Couldn't believe my eyes when I opened it up!
Are you drooling yet? LOL
A beautiful poem about Fairyland with the sweetest collage
with two frozen Charlotte's, gorgeous flowers, butterflies, Fairies

Christmas Greetings

I finally had some time to play in Tim's 12-tags-of-2012-November
and linking my tag to his challenge.
I know its not a Fall tag like Tim's.
I had to get some of my Christmas tags done so went with that venue.
I followed along with the same technique for the background
using Oxford Impressions. Season of Giving images
and used Tim's Festive Greenery die cut strip
to cut out the dies from green and blue velvet paper.

I'll be back later today to post my winners of my Blog Candy!!

a Festive home for the birds and I hear the rent was (cheep)

Here's a Salt shaker ornament. The inside has a tiny Church I made from
glitter card stock. The church is so tiny about 1/2" wide

vintage Prayer cards and Poinsettias made from music paper and glitter CS
