Christmas Came Early

In yesterday's mail came a wonderful Christmas package. In a group I belong to we had a Christmas swap of 6 things. My package came from dear friend, Lynn, in California. I am just so thrilled with everything -- I hope to get better photos, but had to share my wonderful gifts with you.
Be sure to click on the photos for enlarged views.
First is the absolutely gorgeous round box. It is covered in material of my favorite colors. The top is all hand beaded by Lynn and I just feel so fortunate to be a recipient of one of Lynn's wonderful boxes. Then there is the antique perfume bottle with beaded accents, the charming dragon fly pin, the adorable pin cushion, a lovely button pin and, not shown, a squishy bag with fantastic fabrics and threads --- now how fortunate can one person get? Thank you, thank you, Lynn. I love each and every piece and will always treasure them -- as I treasure our friendship.
