Mitzi is someone I met online, and whose blog I really enjoy. She knows her antiques and is interesting to read. I've not met her in person yet, but I hope to. I already know she is a generous person, each year she has donated to the "tweet" bags for Birdsong.
Darling Linda, also sent some goodies. Each is wrapped with this cute tag she made from her photo taken last year at Birdsong 3.
Her gifts are hand made tussie mussies each filled with a sweet bird. Dozens of them! That is devotion, isn't it?
Kim has put together these caged beauties for us too. I can't wait to peek inside to see all the goodies.
Marriane sent these wonderfully wrapped bundles. I have no idea what is in them, but the packaging itself will make fun crafting supplies.
Aren't these old butter boxes cool? Pam Perilla sent these.
Tami dropped by to visit and dropped off her gifts. It made me even more anticipatory for our party to begin, after having a visit with one of our "Peeps".
She made these switch covers from decopaged napkins! I don't think I'd be able to get so many so perfect, those flimsy napkins are hard to work with, she did an admirable job with them.
She also made this pretty teacup nest for me!
And brought dress up clothes for the grand fairies.
I've already mentioned that Gwen has gifted the "Birdsong Ladies" (as Sugarwings calls them) with $50 worth of gift certificates at Bottom's Up antique mall. To draw the names, I thought I'd Wonka it up. I made of list of how many were going to attend that day, then posted the list a few times to make sure no one was left off.
Then, wrapped up 25 mini candy bars (if the ladies wonder why there were no Krackle bars in with the others, it is because they were quite delicious.) Inside the wrappers of 3 of them, I wrote notes in gold ink to create the Golden Tickets to use as prizes, then mailed them all to Gwen. When the Birdsong Ladies arrive to shop, each gets a sweet treat and 3 of them will get gift certificates.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the bags and the drawings. Their generosity and kindness makes the party even more special for our guests.
