What's this I see? A gift for me!

Hello one and all, thanks for dropping in - it's great to catch up as I can't believe that it's been a week since my last post.
As ever life is busy and full of activities which call us away from the computer and when the weather's so pleasant, it's a given that we want to be outdoors and my front garden is calling loudly!I received a package in the mail the other day and I wondered what I had ordered online and had forgotten about - hands up if you've ever done that!lol! Not this time however! My sweet friend Shazy of Countryprims blogspot, picked up on my love of Americana and made these beautiful items for me!The quality of Shazy's work is amazing! My 11 year old daughter even said they looked 'professional' but that is exactly what they are!

I have already started to work them into my summer decorating, though this is a slow task, just bit by bit...

Here's where I put the lovely little doll - she seemed to be made for this spotThis is a display on top of one of my kitchen cupboards - the colors always cheer me up!
Had to include a pic of my primitive shelf!!! Still love it!

Speaking of the primitive shelf, I've been busy stitching another x stitch sampler and I've just finished up this little one~ it's a Primitive Betty's pattern~Thanks again for all your sweet comments - you keep me going! I still really enjoy blogging and the friendships I find here!
Best wishes and enjoy summer,
until next time!
