Last week, two new, and very special, house guests arrived here in Nod....
Are these two not just seriously adorable???
They were the incredibly generous gift from Miss Misi at
1890 Gable House Musings in her Awaiting Autumn Giveaway, and are the creations of Miss Mary from Prairie Homeplace.
Misi was welcoming Mary's wonderful handmades to her shop and selling blog, Gable House Goodes.
Mary's work can be found on her picturetrail:

Misi is one of the most talented artists I've had the good fortune of meeting (in a "virtual" sense). Among other things, she makes the most wonderful things of wax and her "smell goodes" are a little bit of heaven....She is one of the most creative and generous people I know....Besides her amazing talent, she's funny, artistic, beautiful, and everything I want to be when I grow up. As for Mary - well, these sweet folk speak for Mary's talent more articulately than I ever could....Thank you so much Misi (and Mary)!!! Every year these two will await autumn with me with special thoughts of your gifts, talents, and generosity.
And while I'm here....I want to also include a little, but very sincere, note of appreciation for another one of my favorite blog buddies....The ever-sweet and kind Pam from basketsnprims. Pam is one of those people that if you know her, you can't help but love her...but if you didn't know her, you probably wouldn't like her because she is so stinking talented, it makes you a wee bit green.
See Pam kind of does everything....she stitches wonderful stitcheries, she makes wonderful beeswax creations, and is an amazing basket maker....Plus she has a very cool home, family and garden.....she also skateboards on occasion - but I wouldn't bring that up right about now... ;o) Anyway....I digress....
Pam recently listed these fun little candle lights (made in zinc canning jar lids) on her selling blog, primitive basketcase, and I had to have one (ok....two....)
And Pam, the sweetie pie that she is, sent me this:
THANK you Pam!!! You're a for sure and for certain sweetheart!! (Hope that arm is doing better!) ;o)
I have truly been blessed with amazing blessings...of a material and of an even more heart-warming kind....
