Special Deliveries

I thought I would share with you some of the fun things that arrived in my mailbox this past week. I participated in an art exchange that was circulating throughout blogland recently. It was similar to a chain letter, but in this particular one you send a piece of artwork to the top person on the list and then pass the letter on to 6 other people. I decided to give it a try and see what happens. My letter came from Natalea instructing me to send an art piece to Vivian. Here's what I sent her:
One of the people I passed the letter on to is Cami and she sent it to Leann who sent me this wonderful bingo card Christmas collage hanging. I just love it, don't you?
So far this is the only little art piece that I have received . . . . guess not too many people are into chain letters, even if they involve art.

Then I entered (and won) two giveaways during Natasha's It's All About Me Swap Event last month. This is the fun box of goodies that I won from Paula (aka Pearl) . . .
I hung the little witch toy on my front door to greet all the Halloween goblins. And I just love all the vintage ephemera included in the package.

And below is the beautiful print I won from talented Natasha herself - sent all the wayfrom Australia!
I have always admired Natasha's glorious paintings of her pretty pink vintage prom dresses, so you can imagine how winning this prize made me squeal with glee! I want to find just the right frame for it and then hang it in my studio where it will look amazing and offer tons of inspiration. Big hugs go out to Leann, Paula and Natasha for all your generosity!

Looks like you've received some lovely things. I especially like the Bingo card collage - it's time to make something Christmassy!

HI Jeanne! I love the sweet little collage you sent me. I ended up recieving four things in all. And still need to post about them. One of the girls sent me a sweet pair of earrings that she made, and I have lost one of them already! And of course I hadnt taken a picture of them yet. figures!
anyways.. I was pretty sure that the letter wouldnt generate 36 gifties to my front door, But I do love the 4 things that did show up!
The bingo card you recieved is cute too!
have a great week!

Hi Jeanne

So glad that you like it! It's hard to create something for someone that you've yet to meet and get to know. But, you can be sure that I'm signing on as a follower. I haven't rec'd anything yet, but maybe people are in holiday mode and it will take awhile to get something in the mail.

Enjoy your day my friend!

Leann

The mailman has been good to you. So many treasures. I participated in the fun art swap too and sent a gift to Stephanie of Angelic Accents.

Well, at least the piece of art that you recieved was beautiful.'I ended up being a part of the chain letter swap two times. Ugh. two fabulous ladies asked me at almost the exact same time. How could I say no. So, I sent out two gifts. I still haven't gotten one. Oh well, it was fun anyway.
Besides, look at the lovely things you won.:-)
Have a super day
