Spotlighting "Shirl"!

Spotlighting "Shirl"!

I made lots of pictures during the holidays of my swaps & Christmas & birthday goodies, then "misplaced" them. Senior moments seem to be happening more often these days & it doesn't help when you are taking down Christmas, having company, having new grandbabies, & trying to keep working, too!! Too many things vying for my attention & I forget absolutely everything when I'm around my new little grandson!!

But here is the first in a boat-load of pics for you .....

My dear sweet friend & PRH Sister Shirl of Shirl's Rose Cottage gifted me with some glorious goodies for my bday & Christmas, & when the packaging is THIS GOOD you just know the inside is going to be yummy!!
My picture turned out too light ~ but Shirl makes the most beautiful SRE (silk ribbon embroidery) and I'm so lucky to have several of her special pieces! She sells on etsy here, so go check her out ~ you will be amazed!!

Shirl makes THE sweetest tags ever, just full of millinery flowers, beads, glitter, & TONS of soft pastel seam binding!!

Love my mini-stocking & Christmas tag!

And Shirl shares my affinity for adorable snowmen so she bought this special piece for me! I just love how it glistens!

She also knows how I love to stitch & embroider, so she is trying to get me hooked on yet another stitchery craft!!

She even gifted me with my very own "Tweet Baby" Grandma's Brag Book for new little grandson ~ and boy, has it been getting used!

Quite a haul, wouldn't you say? I love you, Shirl!!

Now many of you may know this, but Shirl is only one half of a very dynamic duo, so I'll post soon about the other half!!

Hi Steph, Wondeful pretties from our dear sweet Shirl. She always does make such a special collection of treasures.
I know you have special places for all. The snowman is adorable and the little stocking is so pretty.

Have a great weekend and see you again soon.
Love ya, Celestina Marie
