It has been almost two weeks since I left town to gather with my family to celebrate the life of my brother-in-law. It was good to be together with my daughter, my brother and sisters, in-laws, cousin, nieces and nephews. There was much eating and visiting, as usually happens when we get together.
Also, since I have a June birthday, it was celebrated a bit, as well! I received several charming children’s hankies!
The girl in the pink dress is from Dearest Sister and the girl with the dog is from Dear Ms A. I unwrapped them at different times and places and until I put them side by side, I thought they might be "related"...
This is the one I opened first. I love her eyes and her gloves!
DS also gave me this bunny skater! I love the cable sweater and the vintage colors!
Dear Ms A presented me with this beautiful bird necklace!
I received many cards, with and without musical accompaniment when opened…
and “art supplies”!
Dearest Sister presented me with some of the raw materials for “Sealing Wax Art”. I am not promising that it will be used for that purpose, though. The instruction booklet is filled with cautions about burning fingers on hot wax! Also, I do not have an alcohol burner. I am intrigued, though, so I may give it a whirl. Who knows? Maybe I will come up with a variation and start a new trend amongst crafters everywhere!
