A Pocket Full of Pretties. . .A Lovely Heart. . . My Garden Blooms




































































Hello, sweet friends, and thank you for coming by for a visit!! My friend, Ann, from "The Tin Rabbit" made the gorgeous pocket for me. It is made from a vintage suitcase pocket and covered in beautiful lace and ribbons and filled with lovely ephemera. Isn't it pretty? She also made the wonderful heart with a pocket on it to fill with pretties. They both smell heavenly, too. They are making my whole home smell so nice. She included a delicious paper rose, some delightful egg soaps, and a sweet, sweet egg topped off with posies. I love everything, Ann. Thank you so much! Ann is a Texas gal like me and sweet as can be. Please pay her a visit when you have the opportunity. You will find her here: http://thetinrabbit.blogspot.com/ The other pictures are just some things from my cottage garden. Don't you love spring? How wonderful God is to bless us with new life each year after a long winter. "Today I rejoiced in the beauty of life and love and danced with the angels". I hope you are having the happiest of weeks!! Sending love and blessings your way!

Vicki,
Ann’s handmade works are really very delicated and lovely. Unfortunately, I can’t smell then!
