"white things" today.........

I ordered a few whimseys from a new (to me) online shop named "One Hundred Wishes", and look how beautifully packaged it was when it came!
As you click the ordered items into your "cart", it reads: "I wish for:"
Then when the pkg. arrived, this gold sticker says "Wishes Enclosed" (in this gorgeous polk-a-dot paper!)

You'll have to click and enlarge this photo to see some of the little goodies, but I just love the gold fabric "leaf" ribbon; the woven pink/black jaquard ribbon; the little German scrap paper keys tied with pink ribbon, and in the polk-a-dot cellophane bags are wonderful old-fashioned millinery flowers! In pastel and bright flocked paper colors! I've looked everywhere for them to use in my embellished projects.........this online shopping is so fun!

And look who I found uptown yesterday afternoon!!! My "Blaylock critter cousin" learning to use a leash for the second time! (He does NOT like it, but his mom is teaching him all sorts of good manners anyway.) Did you read about this child earlier in my blog about being abused and starved and literally "thrown away" at the doors of our local animal shelter, when it was CLOSED??!!! And the pup was only a tiny thing to fit in your hand, and weighed ONE pound..........well, the right woman connected with him, and boy, now he's "livin' in high cotton"........'cause she named him "Cotton", she thinks! God is good, isn't He?!!!!


And we here in Warren County, NC spent the night and this morning getting winds and lots of rains we needed from the Hanna storm which went right across our area during the night! Many thankful prayers went up from those of us here who live under and among many big old trees!

I am glad you are all safe. What a delightful way to package up your "wishes".
