~*Sharing Some Gifts*~

Hello Dear Friends! I'm so excited from the weekend and had such an awesome ~*Mother's Day*~... and birthday celebration too. I just have to share some of the gifts I received. They are spectacular! And it goes without saying... my family is too! :)

This prim shelf is from my lil' Sister... It is AWESOME! I think I squealed when I opened it... yup, I know I squealed! The old paint and the antique architecture of it is so GREAT! It is already hanging in our living room over the sofa... with one of the bird nests I saved from the yard last year (after the birds were done with it of course)...

Tony found this darling, prim doll cradle for me. I haven't decided yet where to display it... but I do know I need to get that doll quilt done that was started a couple years ago...

Red is my favorite color... and olde red is even better!

Trinity came home from school last Friday with the sweetest hand made card and a Styrofoam cup with flower seed starts. He was so proud of the flowers... that truly warmed my heart! I didn't get a snapshot of those, but you will see the flowers soon. He also visited the antique store and picked this lil' sewing box out for me. It has the perfect primness!

Last week I told you that I would share the gifts made for my Mom & Mother-in-Law. Here they are...

A punched with yarn rug for my Mother-in-Law that loves sunflowers...

For my Mom... she really liked the notebook covers I made for friends a few months ago. So, I stitched one up special for her. Why didn't I get a picture of her with it? We had supper with her & my side of the family Sunday evening. I had the camera with me. Why didn't I get another picture? Gggrrrrr...

Another one of my birthday gifts was a gift card to buy some flowers - from my sweet In-Laws. I picked those up yesterday... so time to get so planting. I'll share some garden shots with you tomorrow.

Until then... wishing you all warm smiles...
