Today in the mailbox I received a lovely Spring package from a blog friend.
What a treat to get a package from my friend Northern Cottage.
We are just starting our March Break here in Ontario, and I am looking forward to getting a few spring projects completed so this burst of Spring colour was just what I needed to get started.
What pretty colours they are too!
The gift included this lovely altered notebook with ribbon handles. It will be fun to jot notes and lists in it and pretty enough to leave out too.
I will enjoy all the inspiration in this copy of The Cottage Journal -Spring book/mag too. The colours on the front cover are perfect.
And just look at these adorable handmade mug mats.
Love the colourful pattern and the pretty coordinating backing. They will make my tea even more enjoyable.The packaging was so pretty too, and check out the lovely two sided petite tag (mug rugs for you and sweet) -adorable.
Thanks so much my sweet friend. Now I just need to tear myself away from this magazine and my other newest magazine love, Romantic Homes, and get started on those projects.
Here is a closer look at the true colour of the pine bread box I painted robin's egg blue and shared in this post. Those photos were in our basement kitchen and it is hard to get true colour there.
I am really looking forward to having a week off from work. We have a few things planned but lots of time for myself and some playing around the house. Yeah! Hoping you have a great weekend and that you get some of this lovely sunshine too.
