Feast your eyes

Yesterday I promised to show you some more sweet treats. You are so going to drool over these, I sure did!

My very lovely German friend Alexandra surprised me with a gobsmackingly gorgeous collage. A lot of you will already know her and her beautiful blogs, but just in case you haven't been there yet, go check them out HERE and HERE. And this is the totally exquisite collage she sent me -

All those beautiful layers, all those amazing embellishments, it really is an exquisite piece. KNUDDEL, liebe Alexandra, ich hab dich auch ganz lieb!

And as if that wasn't enough eye candy, I am also going to show you a couple of things I treated myself to from the amazing Parisgal, Rhonda! I just can't resist her beautiful things, everything is so beautifully presented, so imaginative, just sheer pleasure to receive. I had ordered a couple of packs of cardstock scraps from her, and this is what I received -

Isn't that just absolutely delightful? The wonderful girl also sent me these adorable pouches and tags -

You are a very generous girl, Rhonda, thank you so much, I'll be back in your beautiful shop soon. I am sure you all know her, but for those few of you who don't, here blog is HERE
and her irresistible shop is HERE.

More treats tomorrow, my friends, until then, toodlepip xxx

Dear Liz
Alexandra's lacey Paris collage is so divinely gorgeous - layer upon layer of gorgeous laces and even some of that so lovely embroidered netted lace too. I so love that!
Little treasures from Rhonda are beautiful also and you so deserve to have all this beauty around you now!
Big hugs and love,

Hi Liz- you have been gifted such a beautiful collage. The lace is absolutely exquisite - it just looks dreamy! It's the perfect gift for you!

I always look forward to seeing your beautiful creations-- I know you'll be crafting with your new treasures-I'm sure you will share that with us too!

I hope you are doing well this winter- I'm sure you are staying busy! Somehow I lost you for a while- could not find you on my blogger list- so I just joined again ( I hope I'm not on there twice-- but I think I might be--!)

Stay warm!
