A Special Surprise

I received a special birthday surprise in the mail from my friend, Lynn.

Lynn says she started all of this back in March so she would have plenty of time. When I opened the package, here is what I found.



Isn't it beautiful? It is so nicely done and I just love it.


And, of course it was filled with lots of goodies. A pin cushion and a pinkeep, both made by Lynn, and a bunch of my favorite fibers--even some pink ones!


A little pouch and a beautiful needlebook. Wait until you see all the french knots inside the needlebook!



And here is what was inside the little pouch.


One of her famous fimo creations--a small teapot and an even smaller teacup. They are so cute!

This is truly a box of treasure. Everything is so detailed. The way Lynn uses crystals and charms gives everything that extra special touch.

Thank you so much Lynn! I absolutely love all of it. You are a good friend.

I saw this over at Lynn's site! That is a beautiful gift! That box is beautiful and so are all the treasures in side! Lucky you!
I love her little polymer clay creations!
I have the good fortune of winning a giveaway that she had! I won a needle roll (I think it is called). It had one of her polymer clay roses on the top of a pin. She surprised me with another pin that had a teapot for the top of it! It is so cute like your little teapot there! She is one talented lady!
