New Neighbor!

Another cottage has joined my neighborhood. This one is from Mel. Isn't it lovely! It is perfect...it really brings my neighborhood together!

Not only did Mel send a cottage...but she sent a beautifully wrapped package with lots of goodies inside!
The little bird ornament is just precious...he is going to hang in my sewing room all year round...as is the lovely door-hanger with my initial on it! Mel included a table topper pattern with some lovely holiday charm squares to get started, and I also received one of her cute sanitary napkin bags with "undie" fabric (if you haven't seen them on another blog...go look...I forgot to put the picture in my collage)!
Somehow, Mel also knew that my quilter's candy jar that I keep on a shelf in the sewing room was empty--she sent lots of Dove chocolates and Werther's to help fill it up!

And here is the cutest little change purse/cell phone holder that I won in a giveaway from Joanna at Applique Today. I kept forgetting to post about it because it went into my purse as soon as I received it! Joanna has a delightful blog and is sewing every day!
I hope there is lots of sewing going on wherever you are!

Nice stuff! I especially love the quilt candy jar. Now all of us could use one of those! Where did you find it, or did you make it?

I saw those door knob hangers on Mel's blog. How exciting you got one along with your block.

I was just reading your blog (I subscribe to it and it showed an update) and I see this cute little polka dot purse at the bottom. I think, Hey that looks familiar, and realize that it's YOUR blog I'm reading lol!! So glad you like it. Your other goodies look fantastic!! You are quite spoiled rotten:)
