Goodies In The Mail

Some goodies in the mail this week, some ordered and one from a swap!  I love getting mail like this.  One of the things I wanted to share with you was the tote made for me by Alveen at Bower Bird in the tote swap I participated in.  I posted about my tote to Alveen here.

Wrapped so lovely and look at this beautiful tote!  This will actually go great with a few of my new romantic tops {from Daphne Nicole’s shop}.  Alveen also included some beautiful goodies.  Thank you so much, Alveen! I love everything!

Just lovely and a wonderful gift to open!  Another thing I got this week was my first ever issue of Jeanne d’Arc magazine.  I hear a lot about this magazine and am looking forward to checking it out.

I’ll spare you the pictures of the two large Target boxes holding my new little bookcases for the craft/sewing room.  This picture is from the Target website.

It has gotten horribly out of hand in there and I couldn’t wait to “find” something by chance anymore.  Once I get them put together and set up, I’ll share a couple of pictures of them.  I was actually surprised to find they were a good deal less than the same exact bookcases at Kmart.

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for Lara Spencer’s book I Brake For Yard Sales, going on through April 13th!

The goodies are gorgeous! Love the little tote. Book shelves, I like, and maybe I need to buy some of those for all my magazines and books! Better than stacking!

Happy Easter.

Peace and Blessings,
Nancy
