Let me first say, I do not have permission to use these photos. I stole them.
This is Val. Isn't she just the cutest?
Val is the creator of The Victorians Didn't Even Like Pink.
I love the name of her blog.
Val has a love for historic homes, vintage hats, and basically anything old which is why I think she likes me. You do like me don't you, Val? She doesn't like Frank Lloyd Wright but then, who really does?
A little while ago, Val hosted a giveaway and I was one of the winners. Dontcha just love that?
I was so excited to see her package in the mailbox this morning.
Here's what was inside:
How cute is this handmade tote bag? It's perfect for my trips to the library.
Not only that, she filled the bag full of goodies. I was so surprised to see that she also sent me:
Three yards of gorgeous fabric and two apron patterns. Now does this girl know me or what??? I love the fabric, the colors are so pretty and I can't wait to create something with it and to try out these patterns. She also knew that I enjoyed making cards so she also filled my bag with scrapbook paper. The really good stuff. Valentines patterns.
What a doll!
Thanks so so very much Val .
I love ya!
