A whole lotta love from my Hermanita

I just received a parcel of love through the mail. My friend Pattie (The Joy of Nesting) sent me some treasures from her paradise.


Some lovely lace pieces - so gorgeous.


Beautiful milagros and a watch casing! Can't wait to do something with these.


Pattie shared some of her precious Mexican amber with me - I am so thrilled and honoured! 
Amber is a beautiful material.


And she gifted me with this fantastic necklace she made, using turquoise and coral with brass chain.
Thank you so very much, Pattie! 
I can't wait to see what you have created for your Art Walk that takes place this Friday.
Why don't you hop over to Pattie's blog? You will love her fabric art too!

Oh, I hardly know where to start with my awe of the treasures Patti sent you. But the necklace is such a wearable treasure right now. And the rest of the gift you will work your magick on and I can't wait for that.
