Linda Claus Strikes Again

Happy Sunday!! Hope you all are enjoying your Sunday!! We're having beautiful sunny cool weather. I've been crafting up a storm for my upcoming shows. Not getting too much finished, but I'm trying.

I want to show you some wonderful goodies that showed up at my doorstep last week. A totally unexpected package arrived from a very sweet lady. She's been spreading cheer throughout blogland with her goodies & has earned the nickname of Linda Claus. I think the name came from Little Raggedy Angie, but I'm not sure. Anyway this sweetie in none other than Linda of Parker's Paradise. You can find her here

Here's what she sent me...

These nice quilted pillow shams (she said they were packing...I like her packing materials).... Okay I somehow erased the picture of the shams, so I added it back in but can't move it from the top of the page.

One of her awesome baby shoe pinkeeps...... Can you see it with all my others??

Here's a closer shot of my new pinkeep....

One of her wonderful stitched pictures... Bless this Home.... I put this on top of my cabinet that is at the entrance to my home. A wonderful reminder each time someone enters.

And this wonderful little Americana pillow...

I added it to my basket with my other little pillows. Can you see it peeking out??? Love it!!

Thank you so much Linda!! You really know how to brighten someone's day. I'm honored that it was my day to be brightened!!

Please know that I am reading & enjoying all your wonderful comments. I am a little strapped for time with 2 big shows coming up & haven't been responding to comments. I do enjoy them though & will continue to read them. Give me a few weeks & I will be back.

Have a wonderful week my blogging friends!!

That Linda is a sweetie-pie! Those are lovely treasures and especially so because they were a surprise from a friend. I'll think positive crafting thoughts for you as you work on your shows. :)

You are most welcome, Sweetie.
My life has been good and I am truly blessed. It pleases me to share my good fortune and make others smile.
Are you smiling, Becky?
Big hugs,

GOODNESS....what a sweet Lady that Linda is...I know she's so very sweet and generous and has a heart of gold. Bless here!
What beautiful treasures. She certainly does send out things that 'fit' the person she's gifting.

Hope to see you in Sept. at the FARM!!
