Happy Monday everyone! In spite of the gloomy, rainy, English weather here in my little part of the world, it's a lovely day inside the Whimsy Ways studio. I've got homemade beef stew simmering in the oven, I have every candle in my house lit, and my newly carved pumpkins are glowing softly......and if that isn't enough to make a girl happy, my hands are covered in paint from the fun new mixed media piece I've been working on this morning, and I have a goofy old Halloween movie on in the background. Oh yeah...it's a good day indeed!!
I wanted to pop in quickly to show you something so adorable, so AWESOME, that it just has to be shared. Remember me mentioning that I had won the recent blog party giveaway from Julie of Pippins Nest? Well...her lovely package arrived over the weekend and oh my goodness, what a wonderful bunch of goodies she sent! First there was this gorgeous handcrafted ticket that was part of the theme of the carnival blog party. You can't tell very well from the picture, but it has lovely silver sparkly goodness all along the edges. So pretty!
Then there were these totally and completely adorable little handmade miniature pumpkins. Perfect for adding autumn goodness to little spaces!
And then, last out of the carefully wrapped package was this gorgeous handmade art doll. It was love at first sight. I mean...just look at her!! I really was truly smitten as soon as I'd unwrapped her and gotten a good look. Her quirky expression, orange hair with little tophat, and black lace dress are so much fun.
She is now in a place of honor on my mantle and every time I look at her it makes me smile. Big big thanks to Julie for her generous giveaway and for sending her gorgeous handmade creations. I will truly treasure them!!! If you have not visited Julie at Pippins Nest, please do pop over and say hello!
Now it's back to making a mess with paints for me. Thanks for visiting!
