The Bottomless Box: A Little Bit of *Parker's Paradise*

Woo Hoo!!
A few weeks ago, Linda from Parker's Paradise had a giveaway for her followers to celebrate her 4th year of blogging....and last week, I found out I was one of the four (yes, four) lucky winners!!
This week, a wonderful box arrived on my doorstep....
But this box was not just any box - it was from Linda....and it truly seemed to have no bottom....
Every time I took something out, it seemed there was still something more inside....(Now, if that isn't a little piece of paradise, I don't know what is!!)
Look at all the wonderful things that came out of that awesome box:


Where do I begin??? There was an apothecary box with 4 primly painted spoons; a creamer and sugar bowl; a little advertising canister crock; and a bar of goat milk soap....





A little tote in sage green paint and a painted plate with a pineapple.....

  
A wonderful little red candle shelf, with a grubby flicker candle and two wonderfully old rolling pins: 


And a partridge in a pear tree....


Just KIDDING!!!
But there were some stencils too I forgot to show in the photos...

Thank you, Sweet Linda, from the bottom of my heart.  I truly love all my treasures (still trying to figure out how you knew I wanted some rolling pins though!!)  What a generous and lovely gift you have given me and others.....Not only in this box with no bottom, but through your friendship and loving heart. Anyone who knows you, knows they are blessed.....

Wow, you must have been so excited to open all of these wonderful things!! You know I have to tell you I am a bubblehead...wondered why your posts never show up on my sidebar and I realized I never signed on as a follower!! You always post such nice comments on mine and I thought you found me because I followed yours!! A blonde moment for a brunette!! ~Kriss~

Mary said...

Good Golly! Been catching on my reading. You really are a hoot. Reading about those snakes gave me the willies. My pool and pond rocks would disappear asap if snakes started showing up in them. And after the round up incident I would run out asap and look for some irish moss seeds and try sprinkling in the brick cracks, LOL. That'll teach him!

I do have that purse started. Really I do. My craft motivation has gone right in the crapper lately. Come to think of it, I haven't finished that remodel either, LOL. :o(
