“Sunshine Mail”

My girlfriend, Vicky sent me a ‘pressie’!

She sent me some of the most beautiful pale red velvet that I have ever seen!

I wish you could see it up close…and feel it!

She tucked one of her candy corns in the package, too and a sweet note!

Thanks Vicky!

Her blog is HERE and Etsy shop is HERE !

(she has some more of these candy corns!)

I’m linking to a new party called “Sheltering the Shelter”. Pamela wrote, “My passion is encouragement and sometimes we just need an idea to get us started.” I like her style!

Are you still having fun decorating for Fall?

How lovely, Diane. So nice to get something in the mail besides the electrical bill!

So far I've been enjoying God's decorating for fall, but now that the leaves are mostly off the trees up here in NW Wisconsin, I might try to bring some of those gorgeous autumn colors into the house!

What a sweet package! I wonder what you are going to do with that beautiful velvet.

Hubby put up the Halloween decorations, and I bought some new fall things, but have yet to find the time to do something with them.

Vicky has a cute shop! I added it to my favorites :)

Love the candy corn and that is a luscious color of red/pink. I love this time of year. We have our windows open today. It is 66.

A nice gift! I like the cute candy corn! The shade of velvet looks as if it makes that little bit of, what looks like the same color on the flower in the background, really pop! Might make for great accent pillows?! Can't wait to see what you'll do with that velvet!
I have been doing a bit of Fall decor at my place, stop on by my page and have a peek, I always enjoy hearing from you and your sweet comments!
Hugs!

Vicky said...

I'm glad you like it, Diane! I'll have lots of Christmas elves and Santas to dress in a few weeks with some of this. Sure does make cute little hats!

The Boston Lady said...

How lovely! Now what will you do with the velvet? Ann

Pamela said...

Is there anything better than a package in the mailbox? Certainly a day brightener. I'm beginning a "Sheltering the Shelter" linkup tomorrow on my blog and was hoping you would link this to it. My passion is encouragement and
sometimes we just need an idea to get us started.

Blessings,
Pamela

Pamela said...

I'm honored that you took the time to help get Sharing the Shelter started. Next week I'll have the thumbnails larger and make it possible to link two posts. I'm going to be haunting your blog to see what you make out of the beautiful velvet. I'm itching to buy some after I saw yours.
