a lovely package

Take a peek at this package I received in the mail last week from the lovely Jennie from A Little Vintage, who makes gorgeous custom made dolls.  I won a prize in her recent giveaway and was absolutely gobsmacked when I opened up my package to see a beautiful purse with "Simple Pleasures" stitched on it and even my name on the back! A cute little purse made out of measuring tapes (clever!) and some delightful cards were in there as well. It really made my day thanks Jennie :)
Speaking of Simple Pleasures, in last week's Viva magazine there was a great article from Zoe Walker called 'The Enrich List' about people following their passions as well as a list of simple pleasures we can all enjoy. Here they are....

*Let go of the edge, you'll be amazed how you float
*Change your routine
*Bask in the sunshine
*Read the book before the movie
*Surround yourself with things that carry good memories
*Spend an afternoon cooking
*Spend time with people that make you laugh

And some crafty goodness in the Viva as well..

Well, time to finish off my pin cushion for the pin cushion swap now...

Love the measuring tape purse! And loved the "Enrich List". I am a firm believer of reading the book before seeing the movie! (P.S. Found you through KMB. Your header hooked me right in. Love it!)

I do love your header! Very pretty indeed. I also love those thoughtful gifts you received. What a kind lady.

I saw that Viva article on crochet. Isn't that a fab skirt?!! I was tempted to turn my squares into a piece of clothing but hubby really couldn't cope with it! So funny to tease anyway.
