step eleven :: thank some folks

lots of nice things

before i start this love fest - if you have a minute - check out the auction for the christian carlos fund. it's a really good cause... and there are some fantastic things to bid on

i have been very very behind in thanking people for some lovely things in the mail... and i fear that i have forgotton somone or something in the above montage - so if i did i apologize in advance....

and i must also thank leonie for a wonderful all new zealand music compilation that just arrived... and risa for my tea party favor [of which nonething exists anylonger... but it sure smelled and tasted fantastic!!].

above.... clockwise... a print from mav . very very excited about her new project to be launched march 1st :: amazing print and fanciful bird from gracia and louise {i'm waiting for gracia to finish the teleporter so that we can pop around to each other's shows... maybe it will show up one day in a brown paper package w/ string and an 'id recorded' sticker front and center} :: the puuurrrfect color for me piece of wall jewelry by julie :: a box full of too many goodies to list from the lovely christine [vegas&venice] :: gorgeous holga prints [look at that chandelier!] from wenders :: charming framed photos and an andrea zittel book [!!!] from annabelle :: the cutest apron [with the sweetest note] from mary :: the best smelling package award goes to amisha for the luscious [i'm going to have to get over my fear of using them] indian papers and lovely soaps :: and karen who sent me such treats AGES ago... i'm finally reading the book and wishing i had more time for it... [and i wear those earrings ALL THE TIME!!]

from abee

abee sent along this delicate necklace... i think it looks a lot like a doily *smile*. {have you checked out her latest photos on flickr ??}

from gwen :: pyrex

and last but certainly not least, the dearest gwen sent some candy covered goodness.... pyrex... oh why do you make my heart beat so??

thank you friends - sometimes i come home and there's a thoughtful package waiting for me and my mood lifts and i get the biggest grin. i can honestly say that your kindness has altered my life. THANK YOU.

i do have to say gwen and i are on similar wavelengths .i think i've still got some fumes and am not on empty yet, but i do need to stop and get some gasoline soon. you know when you are at that point where you have to stop looking for the cheapest gas and just pull into the darn station? if i'm a bit inconsistant here - please bear with me... i'll try post some of what's cooking as i can.

don't forget that shari hosted the documentary project on monday. it will be back here next....

please do check out karen's post - the last on Taxonomy of Barnacles - on ship of fools . you can find the next book and the start date there too.

be well friends - i leave you with a chair i found on the side of the road
by the side of the road

OOohh, lots of wonderful goodies. I love how Julie's wall jewellery look against the old green door, perfect combination. Wow, Gwen's pyrex are amazing, and everyone else's goodies are lovely, lucky you :)
louise said…
Hi Lisa,
You're very welcome. I know Gracia's beautiful print and our little blue bird have found a very special home over there with you and your new found candy covered pyrex dishes and other gorgeous gifts.
Cheers, lj

oh you lucky thing you! such pretty gifts... i think i need a necklace like that, i'm going to have to stalk down ms. anniebee to find out where she got it.
amisha said…
you are such a sweetie... so glad that you liked your paper + soap :) and oohh, such lovely mail overall! hope that you get a chance to fuel up soon. xo amisha
risa said…
wow! what fabulousness you have received! receiving mail is great but it's also great fun to put packages together and actually looking at those photos made me want to put some mail together for people. on a different note, i was just writing an email to julie telling her how you always give me wonderful artists to look up and how i bet you are an excellent teacher and how i would love to take one of your classes (if i could be lucky enough to get in, it seems a lot of other people feel the sae way). hugs! risa
LeeAnn said…
The pyrex certainly is eye candy. I started my polka dot phase late last year and it's just about to hit full stride soon!
wendy said…
so much eye candy...I am always so impressed by the worlds ability to create.
you are charmed to get so many treasures.
abigail said…
love love road side furniture [and these polas rock!}...always feel it has such hidden potential with some tlc, and wonder who will rescue it and take it home ;))

Goodies galore - and all very well deserved...yumola! xox
Karen said…
Hey! When did you get comments back? SO exciting to be able to comment again. Or maybe it's me being obtuse (as per usual - insert rolling eyes at myself here). What a great visual post and I agree with Risa, it's just as fun to give as to receive...

xok
jenny said…
loveliness, you are so loved, :)
jenifer74 said…

bugheart said…

wavelength...

to handle it
so gracefully
and
graciously...
you deserve
all the
prizes
in blogland...

Vanessa said…

cally said…
Such goodies, and that chair!
gracia said…
Good, good mail! Guaranteed to induce a grin. Such a beautiful haul of delights... I'm glad my 2D Hungarian lass is in such good company, with teas, prints, Indian papers, and more, more, more.
take care, g xo

shari said…
such wonderful treats and a great polaroid pair. hope you are doing well. will write so we can "catch up" soon! xoxo
lisa s said…
so so glad you all liked the goodies as much as me!!

and no... i didn't take the chair - as cute as it was it had been sitting out a spell, so i didn't want to worry about cleaning it.... i do always seem to find chairs by the side of the road though....

xo
Mary said…
