The past few weeks the UPS truck, Fedex, and our mailman's jeep have been paying frequent visits to our humble abode. Between things I've ordered and happy little packages sent by others arriving nearly every day, it's been a little bit like Christmas.
Recently the lovely Tricia Rose of Rough Linen fame created her very own bread bag out of some of her beautiful linen. After road testing the bag herself she offered to send a few out to her readers, and I was one of the lucky ones to receive one of her bags.
Now I know I've been mostly gluten free since January, but trust me, I will find a million and one good uses for this lovely bag. And just having it makes me pine for Tricia's linens which are on my "most wanted to buy" list! Thank you Tricia!!!
The next lovely package to arrive on my doorstep was one from The Polished Pebble. Those of you who have followed my blog for any length of time know that along with my love for Rough Linen's wares, I share equal affection for Kelley and her amazing design talents!
Along with her design business, Kelley just opened a shop where she sells one of a kind vintage pieces and some of her homemade goodies, like soaps and potpourri. Kelley was so sweet and sent me some samples of both her Lavender and Rose potpourris and to say they smell heavenly would be a bit of an understatement.
Each generous bag is filled to the brim with the scent of her Ojai Roses or snippets of the beautiful lavender she grows in the highly coveted yard of her California home. Now my home can smell a tiny bit like what I image lounging in her backyard on a gorgeous summer day must feel and smell like! Thank you Kelley!!!
Last but not least are some documents I ordered from Oscar Naylor on Etsy. Alwen, who owns Oscar Naylor was so wonderful to work with and helped find me just the right antique ephemera I was looking for.
These are beautiful vintage documents, many dating back to the 1700 and 1800s and I plan to get them framed to hang in just the right spot in my house. And along with the items I ordered, Alwen gifted me with a few extra goodies...thank you so much Alwen, I will treasure these!
So as you can see, it has been like Christmas around here, with lovely little surprises showing up each week. And with Mother's Day right around the corner I think there might be a few more surprises coming my way.
I hope you each have had a few pleasant surprises at your house lately, and for those of you who are moms, I wish you each a VERY Happy Mother's Day!
