Some Heartfelt Thanks

I have been receiving the most wonderful art
back from all those swaps I've been participating in.
In the order I have received them.
From Linda at  
This wonderfully Witchy altered cabinet card
Chills & Thrills.
Isn't it cool!

Not a swap, just Evelyn from
being a kind and generous friend. Isn't that tag cool! Love the lightbulb embellishment
and her collage background. You'll be seeing that die used a lot very soon.
 Thanks so much Evelyn!

A swap from Kindred Art Souls.
This wonderful Altered tin was made by Michael Farrell
(sorry I don't have a blog link)
Check out these glass feet and vintage pen nibs

Here's the inside of the tin. The umbrella man is on a spring
and wiggles when I open it.

I was invited to do a Friendship flag swap with Meri at
She made me this darling clown that moves when you pull the strings.
How cute is that!

But that's not all.....
Hold on to your hats because she also sent me some of
 her AMAZING fabric art.
This fabric card and tag all with a bird theme .
Isn't it just beautiful!

When I opened the next package I about fell on the floor!!
She sent me this incredible fabric book all about birds.

page after page of beautiful quotes and lace

buttons and trims

stunning images

I think this is my favorite ,
she fashioned a cage from wire around the bird

more beautiful pages.

are you drooling yet?

then the back cover. I'm still in AWE of its beauty.
I can't thank Meri enough for the gorgeous and most generous gift.
I will treasure it forever!
I just received this Wonderful package from my dear friend Jo at
Who sent all these treats for my upcoming Birthday.
She made that cool altered birdhouse in a Halloween theme.
and the darling burlap gift bag held more treats. Some
wire mesh, several yards of ball chain a doll head and
how cool is that wooden hand!
I LOVE it all. Thank you Jo

A close up of her Altered Halloween Birdhouse!

Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart!!!
I feel so blessed to know so many talented and generous blog friends.
I will cherish everything for years to come.

Be sure to stop by on Saturday where I'm playing along in the
bog hop. I'll have lots of Halloween treats up for grabs.
