Wonderful Goodies In The Mail...


You might remember a few posts back when I shared a lovely old floral tin I found!  Well, my friend Kat from Low Tide High Style was interested in buying it to use in a photoshoot.  Kat is a wonderful photographer and I asked if she would like to trade instead!  She is so generous and sent me a beautiful group of photos from her Wildlife and Beach Galleries!  I framed them up to display at our family lakehouse... won't they be perfect?


Sandpipers...



shells...



and a seagull...


and this lovely surprise... a photo from her trip to Europe...Fountain's Abbey in England!  I'm looking forward to framing this one up, too!


 You'll have to visit her wonderful website, Kat Warren Photography , to see her beautiful portfolio and photographs she has for sale!  My photos don't do hers justice!  And if you haven't discovered her blog, Low Tide High Style ,  I hope you'll stop by and pay her a visit!  One of the sweetest bloggers around, she is also one of the most talented...her photographs and articles have appeared in Cottage Style, Country Sampler, Country Almanac, and Romantic Country!  I am always inspired by her willingness to "go for it"!    Thank you so much, my friend!



Also this week, I received a wonderful giveaway win from creative Ann of Moonbeams & Fireflies !  I won one of her charming handmade For Giggles and Grins Journals!


Isn't it lovely?


It is full of vintage and found papers...



little hidden surprises...


You know how I love vintage ephemera...



and anything with vintage bingo has my name on it!


Ann has such a fun blog... full of her repurposed projects and vintage collections!  I hope you'll stop by and say hi!  Thank you so much, Ann...I know I will have so much fun playing with this!



And I want to say a BIG thank you to all of you for your sweet and supportive comments about my entryway project...it inspires me to finish some of the other projects around here!

Until next time...
