Wow Wow Wednesday!

Despite a rainy dismal day outside things are feeling warm inside thanks to some extra special deliveries I just received.

Lori from My Faerie Window graciously agreed to do a swap with me. Her creations are truly amazing, so sweet, and filled with extraordinary detail and materials. When she told me I should be expecting my box today, I waited for the mailman like a puppy! Make that a puppy with a digital camera!

GASP! I love pretty packaging. Even a card with my name is attached to the bag with a small brad. So clever! I could hardly wait to open it. GASP!

How adorable is this? They're aren't words!

Lori calls these "felties" and I have no idea how she even makes them. I'm guessing faeries take care of things while she sleeps. Pale blue is my favorite color.

And another pretty package with a felted heart and millinery flowers on top!

Inside were Lori's wonderful collages and I love her business card!!! Check out more of Lori's creations at her shop ~ here!

Next came my order from MaryJane's new Etsy shop. MaryJane of The Beehive Cottage was my very first Etsy customer. As soon as I saw that she opened a shop, I couldn't wait to buy from her. Look at these beautiful tags! I love the images and the ribbon!

And MaryJane being the sweetie that she is, also surprised me with a beautiful journal that she made.

I love the details, the ribbon, the images ... the thoughtfulness

I have never received anything like this before and just adore it.

MaryJane is about to receive her own special delivery. Here's a sneak peek (inspired by her trailer ButtonWillow).

Borrowed some Playmobil props from my youngest son for the chick pic! Serving suggestion only.

Hope you're all having a Wow Wow Wednesday, too!

I jumped over from Lori's to see your sweet goodies she sent.. I am in love with "Queen of Cottage"! Even more so now that I know she even created the felted bunny & heart! It's an amazing piece! I would have been as tickled as you were, waiting for the mailman! I'm like a little kid when a box arrives! lol...

I am fairly new to blogging and have just discovered your lovely blog via My Faerie Window's blog. That bunny is gorgeous! I like the things that you make. I can't make anything at the moment as the whole house is undoing redecoration and quite a few changes. Can't to be all up straight again so that I can start making things again.
