Mail received, a sneak peek and a freebie

A while ago I purchased a gorgeous lace heart from Suzy of

Suzy is one of my favourite artists and her work always inspires me.
She has a great eye for colour combinations, beautiful images and gorgeous details.

Along with the heart I bought this gorgeous card.

On the card she added some of her own goats hair, which she dyed herself.
(Only the hair, not the goat ;)

The sweet and generous Suzy added some beautiful things to the package
which I can use for my own work.

Another package arrived.
It came from another generous soul.

After seeing my beachy works, she sent me these beautiful beach finds.
Sea glass, pottery, stones, all beautifully worn by the waves.

Thank you dear friends, you're so generous and such inspirational artists!
Big hugs to you!

And here's another sneak peek of my other blog

And last but not least a freebie for you.
One of the antique French postcards I bought last year.

Free for you to use in your own projects.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend!
