Goodies in the Mail!!!


Look at this sunrise that greeted me today! It was awesome..Dark red was the sun, it was just a huge orb as it was coming up..too bad I'm not a good enough photographer to have captured it....

I had to be up and at'em early this morn..got a paint job ..so when I came home, Merl the mail man had been by and boy, was the Big Black Mail box full up...other than bills and magazines it was full of goodies!! Yea for me ;)



This one was first to be opened when I saw it:

Marsha from Tumble Fish Studio and I are in a swap..she's made this wonderful collage.

Then made these smaller ones, that I am going to turn into pendant!! Fun or what??



These little lovelies were from an Etsy shop:




Wait till you see what's in my head for these..charms and then some!!!

My wonderfully talented friend Andreea made me a gift box!!




She filled it with lovelies and look at the crocheted wrap:





Tiny little nests! Some are empty..some are full..isn't she the most wonderful friend???








Bobbin' Heads riding in the back dash of cars....Remember these?? Well I had to find one for Son's 55 Chevy..well, I won enough in one auction..for Hub's 55 Chevy, my car and even my Daughter's car..lol..
They may all go in the jalopy...just for fun~




I won this wonderful print from:
Stephanie Rubiano's Blog!! She another Texas gal I like to check in on and see what's up..She's been in Somerset more times than you can count with her wonderful perching pixies and at Art and Soul and other retreat..maybe we need to see if she'll pop in at Paper Cowgirl???..Now to find the perfect frame for it...
Ya'll have a great day, I hope your mail box is full of goodies too today!
hugs,t

Okay, well, I was trying to be discrete in my first post after Becky emailed me, but now Cindy has it on her blog so I am going to yell it from the mountain . . . unending prayers are being lifted up for you. FAITH, my friend. You had that appendix for a reason and it is certainly good that it spoke up. So FAITH! Believe in the millions of prayers that will be lifted up and all of the love that will be sent your way. Believe. Love you! Let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do for you or your family. I'll do it!

Lynn Richards said...

Hi Tina!
I'm Lynn. Nice to meet you!! I do so love your blog.
I have gotten to know Cindy over at Yapping Cat. She has asked us to send you cheer and encouragement since hearing of your diagnosis. I would like to leave you with this scripture which has gotten myself and some others that I know through some tough hurdles.

"Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders."
Deuteronomy 31:11-13
Lots of hugs to you!!

You are such a sweetie, and I am so glad to have met you in this crafty-swappy world!! Hugs, Tina!!!

Jan (J.T.) Thomason said...

I'm going to hopefully get some comments about your "medical adventure with C." started here. I think this is the perfect post to say a few words about your new battle....the sunrise in which you can see God so plainly and then the gifts you received in one day in your mailbox....God and gifts. They go hand in hand and I know that He has many gifts planned for you in these coming days. They will be mixed in with your trauma, the complete upset of your world and your new life battle.

I know that you wear the armor of God and that He will give you the strength you need to fight the good fight.

I also know how much He loves you.
At least three times as much as I do.

You are my precious friend,
I love you,
Jan

FILIGREE MOON said...

Tina, please know that you are in my prayers in that you have much peace in enduring this battle with cancer. Know that this will not defeat you and that your spirit must remain open to the peace and healing of prayers sent your way. It is so shocking that one of your beauty and energy can be hit with such a hard blow. It is that same strength that will get you through this. Know that you are loved by so many and wished that the very best care and blessings surround you and your family at all times.~ Angela

Gina2424 said...

Tina- what are those doorknobs/escutcheon things you got on Etsy? I believe you called them charms. Are they paper? How big are they? Very cool. Can you point me in their direction. And thinking of you, having read Jan T's alert. Now, you need a different kind of mojo. Focus on that. The entire art community is sending you our thoughts.
