A Gift from Mama's Mercantile

Imagine my delight when I checked my mailbox and I had a special delivery all the way from Lincolnshire, England. I had won a blog give away from Mama's Mercantile!

Inside was a beautifully wrapped package. I just love the little flower pin that I can reuse on a blouse or purse.

And so many beautiful buttons all sewn on the cutest cards. I am not sure how I am going to use them yet but I do have a few ideas..... wink wink

Also included was this sweet little needle case. I think it is so cute. She said it is made out of Harris Tweed. From the Isle of Harris and Lewis. I learn something new everyday. I have never heard of it. I love meeting people from far away lands. It seems we can learn so much from each other.

This is the inside of it.
If you have never looked at her blog go over and check it out. She is a very industrious woman. Always creating and crafting something.

  6. Amy, can you do me a favor? I saw that you were a follower of this blog on Google + She leaves me comments, but I can't respond because she is Google + and I have no idea why I can leave a comment with you and others on Google + and some I cannot?? Anyway if you get a chance could you let her know I appreciate her comments, but there is no way to contact her. I am guessing if I am having this problem a lot of her followers are too. She is "blogger no reply" does not have an email listed on her blog and you can only contact her if you are also google plus Tell her The Polka Dot Closet said Hi.........Thank you so much Amy


I love reading your comments......They mean so much to me!!!
