LOVES in the Mail!!

I've received some unexpected LOVES in the mail in the past few weeks, and just HAD to share!!

First up:
The cutest lil' felt ninja you will ever see! My bloggy friend Karen from UrbanCraft -- who is an absolute CRACKUP -- made and sent him to me! I originally saw a trio of these guys at The Toy Society, and immediately fell in love. Months later I came across Karen's blog, and -- lo and behold -- she is the genius crafter behind them! Anyway, long story short, she knew I loved them and made me one to cheer me up after a sewing disaster!

The cutest little rock mouse family! My friend Andrea, who I have known for ~Y~E~A~R~S~, painted this sweet little family of mice for my boys, who are obsessed with baby mice. Aren't they just the cutest?? There has been endless fun at my house with these guys. The boys, like me, love all things tiny. They've got a collection of very small things that they and the mice play with. It's so fun to listen in!

And last, but not least:
I actually won a giveaway (!!!!) during Sew, Mama, Sew's Giveaway Day!! Isn't this bag/purse just amazing? It was handcrafted by Sarah of SimplySarah. Just looking at all the stitching and details, it's plain to see that she is a skilled sewist. I am in LOVE with the bright orangey-yellow lining. And check the dangly beady fringe at the bottom!
