Treasures to share

Back in December, I won a wonderful giveaway from Marilyn at Cordelia's House. Look at the box full of goodies she sent me!

I just love this handmade card. I don't want to give it away because I want to keep it for myself! She has so many beautiful cards for sale in her Etsy shop.
She also sent me all of these wonderful lavender sachets. I love Paris and anything French so I can't pick just one favorite.
And that is not all! I also got this painted box filled with rag balls made with the prettiest shabby chic vintage fabric. They are proudly on display on my coffee table! They are one of a kind and they are all mine!
Marilyn is a sweet and talented lady and I think you would love her 3 Etsy stores. If you are looking for handcrafted, beautiful cards; sweet smelling lavender sachets or any other lovely vintage items, please visit her shops. I promise you won't be disappointed!

I recently participated in an altered key swap at The Altered Paper. Here is one of the altered keys that I received from one of my 2 partners, Red Apple Junction. I love what she sent me. An altered tag with a very neat looking key plus another key that I can alter myself. She also sent some fun tag cutouts, buttons and sparkles. I love it all-thank you so much! I forgot to take a picture of the keys I made-oops! When I get my other key I will be sure to share!
I have been an absentee blogger lately. It is commencement week at the college that I work for. Board meetings are taking place as well as last minute events and fundraisers. I do love to be busy so I am not complaining! I also wanted to let everyone know that I applied for a different position-Events Coordinator. I know that I am perfect for the job-my dream job-so please keep your fingers crossed that I get it!
