artful treasures

i am in constant awe of the incredible talent that exists here in blogland. what a magnificent community of fabulous artists......filled with kindred spirits willing to share their artwork and inspire every person who is lucky enough to discover it. and while nuggets of creativity float through cyberspace via blog posts, there are times when the blessing goes one step further and such treasures will also show up in your mailbox.....like this colorful and gorgeously painted, collaged and stitched card (plus envelope!!) that i recently received from blog sweetie gina lee kim.......


and this beauty that jane at painted heart studio sent to me (and as exquisitely painted as the card is, the envelope is just as fantastic!)......


and this stunning purse charm that crystal at bead happily ever after sent after my name was pulled out of the lucky giveaway hat......and it's so magnificent that now i'm considering asking my little dutch sweetie for a new purse to go with it!!


and then just yesterday, this beautifully painted and collaged little gem arrived all the way from slovenia, where my sweet bloggy friend kitty at slovonske technobe lives. we did a post card exchange.....


and this is the one that i sent to her (neither one of us knew what the other was doing, and we both chose to use birdies in our design.....how fabulous is that?!!).

each and every one of these jewels go in my artful treasure chest......right next to all of the heartfelt comments and bloggy hugs that you leave for me here on my blog every day.....
thank you SO much for your warm feedback and encouragement!
i cherish you more than you'll ever know! xox

Well, you should have no doubts now for sure that you are truly blessed AND highly favored!
I deeply love bloggy land and daily comments from all my wonderful bloggy friends, but there is just something about getting something in the real mailbox that is cemented in the ground that doesn't compare. You really got some nice treats in your snail mail. I'm trying real hard not to be jealous! J/K
You deserve it all!
Hugs,
Tara
