Last week, a box arrived. A Sizable Box which my DH brought to me, waiter style, and said "Gee, it's big but is there anything inside? It's so light!"
Here's THE BOX:
Upon opening, a pretty package peeked out.
Indeed a very nice looking package with some rustling inside - "Let me out! Let me out!"
And this is what peeked out at her new home.
Welcome to my home! This is "Blossom, Bunny and Butterflies" the creation of the talented Susan of Mouse Droppings. It might have been two years ago that I came across Susan's beautiful creations but it was only until now that I could bring one home!
As you've probably noticed in the photos above, the top pincushion has cross stitched motifs, perfect for a stitcher like me. I had requested RED and French General fabrics and I got both. I just love it!
I came to realize that owning one of Susan's creations was on my Bucket List, so to speak, or my Gotta-Have-It-One-Day list! The subject of a Bucket List recently came up when I went to visit this lovely blog. Corey was having a giveaway and you had to list the top three on your Bucket List. I don't have a written list but I whipped out these three easy peasy as if they've been just sitting there, waiting to be asked to step out into the light.
- Take a trip on the Orient Express.
- Visit New Zealand, especially the places where Lord of the Rings was filmed.
- Get involved with a Literacy Program for Kids.
So that was what got me thinking about Bucket Lists. In the back of my mind, in terms of needlework related things I want to own:
- One (at least) of Susan's creations. (yup!)
- antique needlework items (I bought 2 things online recently - will show them when they arrive!)
- Any one of these French scissors!
Tell me - What's on your Bucket List? I would love to know.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope, with this post, you will take a few minutes to Dream as well! Have a great week ahead!
