Oh Goody Goody!

Okay friends...ya'll just know how I love to brag on my fellow bloggers right? Well, I'm doing it again today.

I know that Geralyn is training in Boston this week for her new managerial job but I have to show you what I bought from her etsy store a while back!

It was wrapped so delightfully pretty, I really didn't want to mess it up. The tissue paper was gorgeous so I saved it for a future collage project. And the lace. And the millinery. Get the picture?

All of this loot was in the tissue...just bursting at the seams. The best part about it was...she sent me way more than I purchased. The precious package was FULL of surprises!!!

For $9.99, I purchased all of these Remnant Collections by Rebecca Sower!!! I am a BIG fan of RS and I just can't enough of it! Let me say too...some were even doubles!!!

I had no idea why she had price tags on some of them because her price is still well below what they are brand new and what I paid! Treat treat!

Sorry to make you jealous but I just had to share my excitement with you.

She is cleaning out her art nest and sporadically putting packages for sale in her store. If your supplies are "short", you may want to peek inside. Dare I say if "you need anything" right? ;)

**She is out on training so her etsy store is on hold**

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a few days...that is so not me. But I am STILL cleaning and saving all of my "stuff" I bought and accumulated while Sandy was down for the week. I promise, it was that much! :)   I CANNOT PART WITH MY STUFF...how do you do it Geralyn??? (But I'm glad you did!)         :)

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday, xoxo (the hoarder)

Oh I can see why you are so excited. A pretty package holding lots of little pretty things! :-)I bet you have lots of projects in store. Is your mind already overflowing with ideas? :-)

What a fabulous package of goodies! Everything's so pretty - right down to the wrapping. I can't wait to see what you're going to create . Sue

Now I know why you didn't respond to my latest email yet. You are soooo lucky. When I get a package in the mail, it's like Christmas all over. Especially when it's wrapped so prettily (is that a word, well it is now). And extras, my oh my, how exciting.

Oh how pretty and so much fun in that pile of goodies!!! I love RS too and did not realize she had a line of her own??!! I have fabric that matches that tissue paper too!! I know what you mean about loving your stuff...I have been trying to purge a bit and cannot seem to part with "anythang"!!!!! I always regret getting rid of things that I lOVE and I love it all!!! Have a wonderfull creative day!

You're right, the packaging alone is a treat, but the contents are 2Die4!!!
Sorry I didn't make it to see you. We had to cut the trip short since I got puny. I did see some of those wonderful sharecropper houses you did a post on and I am in love. I tried to talk C.D. into bringing one home for a souvenir and he said no. Can you imagine? He told ME no! We're planning a return trip because we saw a lot we want to come back and check out.
Looks like I missed quite a lot while I was gone.

Geralyn is one fabulous girl. You all will really be jealous when I post my give away prizes that she sent me. I almost fell over with surprise at all that she included. Love all your goodies, Pam

You look like you hit the jackpot! What great stuff! I love the way she wrapped everything-the lace really made it lovely. No doubt you are going to have fun creating with all of those wonderful goodies:)

Geralyn Gray said...

Parting is such sweet sorrow-----not really. Do you really think I don't have more???? Seeing it bring such pleasure is enough. That made my day----thanks for such a nice post----Reading all those nice comments made me feel great.

The Chick said...

Beautiful tissue paper, ooo baby! What a nice suprise to get extra goodies- you lucky hoarder you! Yes, I have cut myself off for a few weeks because I can't get rid of anything either. It's a problem in need of a 12 step program that's for sure :o)

Sares said...

What fabulousness! Makes me wish I could so sew, LOL! Don't you just love getting something delivered that you have been anticipating. I know computers make it faster and easier to communicate with people, but every day I still get excited to get the mail, is that weird?

Linda said...

Geralyn is such an angel it doesn't surprise me all of the goodies she stashed inside. Thanks for the treat of seeing how beautifully she wrapped the package. I have a terrible hoarding problem too, but I have to start parting with some of it or hubby is going to leave. I was tagged by another sweet blogger and I've tagged you. Come by my stardustmoonbeams blog to check it out. I put up a link to your blog, but there's no pressure. Hope you're having a great day!

Beautiful! I soooo love opening the beautiful packages from fellow Etsy sellers :) Part of the reason I'm so addicted to it!

Hi Jodie Hoarder,
I'm like that too, in that I can't make myself part with my stuff. I get it out now and then to look at it and adore. The house is getting pretty full. Maybe Hubs and I could sleep on the couch and make another studio out of our bedroom. Hum, I'll have to ask him.
Hugs,
June
