Gifts From Canada...

We've been exchanging gifts for over a year, but it's never expected. I was thrilled and delighted to find a Canadian package from Margaret B. of The French Bear, in my mailbox last week.
ACORNS!!!! Yippee! Inside my package were wonderful things I'd never seen before! A magnetized acorn needle-keep, a mother-of-pearl thread sorter, and two wonderful, brazzy acorn ornaments. (They were heavy!)
There were coffee-stained tags with acorn motifs (and a closeup of the mother-of-pearl thread sorter).
Acorn drawings that Margaret purchased from Michelle Palmer for me, and felted acorns inside real acorn caps!
The final gift in Maggie's wonderful gift package was a handcrafted Christmas tree. A patchwork of pinks and girly fabrics, with a velvet tree trunk and a brass ring at the top from which to hang it. Jingle bells and seam binding for another festive touch.

Maggie, my dear. I can't tell you how much all your generous gifts mean to me. I really was so tickled. The more I looked, the more wonderful gifts I found! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

You know a package is going to be heading north to you, right?!! Hugs and much gratitude for the package of goodies...but mainly for your gift of friendship.
I have more gifts to share with you, my friends, but I want to give my blogging friends their own post to show my appreciation. I'll be sharing more in the upcoming days. I've been receiving some truly wonderful things and I can't wait to show them to you!

Dee, I am so happy that the parcel arrived!!! It always amazes me how long it takes to go between our countries....which is not far.... I just love how everywhere I look these days I see acorns or squirrels or bunnies....those little felted acorns are so sweet, they said "Dee" as soon as I saw them!
Hugs,
Mags
