Is it Tuesday already?

Hii!! Wow time flies and I can't remember when was the last time I had tea 
at home....

I'm looking forward to "restfulness" and "quietness"
and time to do some reading and yes Art...

"Art Helps me Breathe"

This came in a surprised "package"
which arrived on one evening, upon returning from a long day at work,
I was yearning for something pleasant to make me "happy"...

and I did, a million times....

a package came in from a very dear friend, Patty


who sent me her beautiful art, and mixed media art materials,
all artistically packaged..


and what a pleasant surprise when I saw this little pendant..


because it was all so personalized and special..


I love lavender and Patty had them in this heart shaped pillow. 

I've also been secretly admiring and hoping to covet her beautiful
match box with her handmade bird's nest....


and her zentangle ATC ..


THANK YOU dearest friend....
Your friendship means so much to me...

Happy Happy Holidays to you and yours!!!

(I'll be posting more art in the next few days..)

Warm hugs
Steph

Patty is so dear and thoughtful that way. Her gifts are from the heart, and she makes everything personal.

I have been so far behind this year. I intended to get something in the mail for you, but maybe I'll make something for Valentine's Day and get it made by Easter. Yep, I'm really behind. Have a super Tea Tuesday, dear friend and a very Merry Christmas and happy New Year.
