today I am sharing a box of wonderful hand crafted treats that arrived in my mailbox all the way from Germany…

I was one of the lucky winners of a giveaway that the lovely and talented Valerie of Bastelmania had recently (Valerie shares her beautiful surroundings along the Rhine River and her passion for creating here on her blog)

Valerie card and art goodies

you’d really have to see these pieces in person to fully appreciate the depth and detail that Valerie puts into everything she makes (also included were some blank tags and a little blank canvas that I have already started playing with)…

who knew a plain brown paper bag could be magically transformed with punching and folding and special touches (the color is truer in my second photo below…my iphone and I are still learning to get along)…

the layers and details on this owl hanging are really wonderful (notice the handmade paper beads and more)…

wishing everyone a happy T day along with all of the friends over at Elizabeth and Bleubeard’s…

  16. Holy cow. What a score. You got some really beautiful pieces. I especially like the owl on fabric. That was over the top, along with the cardboard and flowers.

    Of course, I like the vignette you set up in the tea cup, too. It is truly lovely.

    thanks for sharing this gorgeous happy mail you received from Germany, and your teacup filled with autumn goodness for T this Tuesday, dear friend. Sorry I haven’t been by. Will try to catch up once my internet is working again.

  22. What a bounty of wonderful, artful creations from the lovely Valerie.
    Valerie is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to creating, she is a whirlwind of creativity and to receive her art in the mail is the biggest of treats.
    So many amazing creations.
    Wishes

  23. Just saw this, glad you like your things. Tuesday was a catastrophe here, Blogger locked my blog because of suspected malware, but there wasn’t any, and it got ‘released’ after a few hours, but it really stressed me out! Hugs, Valerie

  24. My dear, dear Patty. I received your card today and couldn’t wait to get on the internet to thank you for everything. I’ll send a formal response later in the week, when I hopefully have my own computer working again. But for now, I appreciate it. I knew it was from you even before I saw the name.

    BTW, did you get my card?
