A Surprise Gift from Miss Sandra!

Surprise Gift #1

A couple weeks ago, I entered a Second Blogiversary Giveaway
on the one of my favorite blogs,

And guess what?

Surprise Gift #2

I didn't win!

BUT, Miss Sandra decided to draw one more name
for a SURPRISE gift.. and then I won!

Surprise Gift #3

But what has arrived in this beautifully wrapped
little bundle?

Surprise Gift #4

A sweet little card was attached...

Surprise Gift #5

Ooh, it looks like the roses on my quilt!

Surprise Gift #6

What a fun surprise! A woven vintage doily,
with beautiful hand embroidery work!

Surprise Gift #7

The colors will fit right in at Eastlake Victorian!
And I think I know just the right spot for it!

Surprise Gift #8

AND, a lovely cabinet card portrait
of a pretty young lady from the c. 1880's!
She looks like she is posing by a quilt or pretty throw.

Surprise Gift #9

Surprise Gift #10

Thank you so much, Miss Sandra! I use doilies all over the house,
and I collect Victorian era photographs.
Your thoughtful gifts will be put to good use!

Surprise Gift #11

Be sure to visit Miss Sandra and her faithful companion,
Mr. Knightly the cat, at Musings From Harmonie House.
Miss Sandra has a GORGEOUS dream home
and loves to live life to its fullest IN THE PAST!
She is also a wonderful poet and music lover.
Do stop by Harmonie House for tea
and say hello to Miss Sandra!
:-)

What a lovely gift. The cabinet card is perfect. I'm sure you will find the perfect spot for that embroidery.

Hi Liz,

I like the shape of the doily, long and thin. Sometimes round doilies just don't fit on a narrow area. There are a few great places I can use it!
