Small Boxes, Big Boxes

Good things come in all size packages.
This week, two wonderful pieces of white
 arrived on my doorstep.

This lady I ordered from Carole and I LOVE her!

She will remain on display all year to remind me
of our friendship.

This next package was a complete surprise, 
and I must say 
tugged on my heart strings.
 I received this from the  lovely and 
talented Marcela;
she told me Santa left it for me under
 her CA Christmas tree.
I LOVE it!

In the busy Holiday season, 
she crafted this to inspire me and 
I will always think of her whenever I see it.
 It will reside in my studio.

This lace is so intricate, and check out
 that pretty little frame.

Thank you my dear friends so very much!
I am truly grateful for all the good people in my life.

I'm sure she will love being with her other Nicol buddies. Are you going to bling bling her like mine is???
