Art on My Porch

No, I'm not talking about my mosaic'd chair planter! I mean that yesterday a wonderful treat appeared on my front porch: it was a package from Lydia because I was the recipient of one of her One World, One Heart giveaways!

The package itself was so adorable, and when I opened it (which I almost hated to do because it looked so cute), inside were these adorable pieces of ephemera:

Look at the way she packaged it! I especially loved the way she made a flower out of paper with her name on it and then used it to fasten the bag closed!

The best was yet to come:

This "ABC's of Life" journal may be used as an address book, too, but I think I'm going to use it as a quotations journal! It is so much larger than I expected it to be, and thick as well, made with high quality paper inside and a kind of ostrich-skin textured cover which Lydia has artfully decorated. Here's the back:

How much fun is that? You have to visit Lydia's blog to see more of her art!
