Beauty from the Emerald Isle….

Good morning everyone!!   This morning, our mail lady brought a special treat from the beautiful Emerald isle of Ireland.   Christine  (Preferably Prim) held a giveaway of one of her sweet penny rug candle mats….and I won!  It is a treasure….thick, plush, and beautifully stitched.    Thank you SOOOO much Christine!!!   I love it!   You MUST click on it to see how much stitching went into this……..

And if that wasn’t enough, Christine included a calendar of beautiful Irish scenes.  So beautiful, so inspirational. Thank you.  Many of you know my mother was born in England in a village outside of Stoke-on-Trent.  I like to think that some of this scenery is similar to my mother’s homeland. Thank you Christine for the gifties…and for being a friend.—hugs, Jan   Smile
