Some Great Mail

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks so very much for all the kind comments about ATS and what seems like an never ending stitch!!  Not having worked on ATS for a couple of days seems odd, but I know that it is waiting in the Basket when I finish up other pieces.
_____________

The mails, while I was away brought some really fun things.....  and in no particular order.....

A while back I won one of the Gift-a-ways that Nancy over at "Victorian Motto" was having, she is so nice and her things are just gorgeous!!!  It arrived and was a real treat to open...


Not only was there a super chart, but the package was filled to overflowing with her lovely hand dyed floss and finishing trim... and those beautiful buttons and bits.

Another package arrived from my stitching friend Vera...  she has been knitting and sent me a super felted Fall bowl...


It is a wonderful vibrant orange and I filled it with some sparkly Autumn bits, it really adds to our Seasonal display!!
____________

I also got  most of the charts I had on order from various places including the Bay of evil....



You can see the November Cottage, need to trade out a couple of colours there, and the new release from Heartstring Samplery "Baby it's Cold Outside" what a great song and wonderful interpretation!!
____________

I also had a sweet surprise from another Stitching friend, Valerie - she remembered how much I love Old Hollywood and sent me ....



A Hollywood Trading Card of one of my favorite musical Stars!! Jane Powell!!

Here's a clip of her in that super musical "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" - 1954 - 



I have never seen Hollywood Trading cards... now I need a whole set!!!

That's about it for today sports fans.  I think I will leave you with another snap of Florida taken about 45 minutes after yesterdays snap at the beach.

 I took this while stopped and waiting to make a turn looking west across a swampy part of the Tomoka River along US 1/Old Dixie Highway.  This oncoming storm is what got me off the beach and heading for home.

Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!

Take care,
edgar

Oh Edgar, your picture of the beach yesterday is gorgeous! And then the storm pic today...that's the way of FL isn't it? Your mailman should be given a treat for bringing you such goodies! Looks like wonderful fun to return home to! Glad you made it home safely from your trip.
