* It's Christmas (yet again)

I am so SPOILED.  So many people have sent "stash stuff" for me since I've been here in Mexico.  Today, at the post office, yet another huge, heavy box appeared.  I could hardly wait to get home.  I wanted to rip it open right then and there.  I did refrain however!

It was absolutely chocker block full of incredible vintage things.  Things I could never find here in a million years.  Here we go ....

I actually have some antique spindles from the woolen mills in Scotland.  I have, however, never seen a top like this.  It is so beautiful!  Can't stop looking at it.

Wild an wonderful fabric from the 70's!  WOOOOOSa!
You are no doubt wondering who this wonderful culprit is.  So generous, so giving, like most artists I am finding out first hand.  The lovely lady's name is Nancy Lynn.  Nancy I cannot thank you enough.  I feel like a small child at Christmas.  I just keep looking at everything and seeing the possibilities.  

You will love Nancy's blog. Using Up All That Stuff.  Nancy is having a whole bunch of fun over there, so I do hope you will drop by and enjoy!

Thanks for popping in, my lovelies.  It is indeed an honour to have you here.

 Even after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens with
A love like that.
It lights the whole sky.  ~- Hafiz of Persia
