Just Because...Friday Pretties

Happy Friday Pretties!
A gift for no reason...
My friend, Renee, from
gave a few of her buddies,
(I happen to be one of them- Yey)
these adorable 
Blossom Pins.
The very talented Miss Renee
made them for us.
How Cute!
And, because of our mutual love
for Cath Kidston
She made mine with some 
of her coveted CK fabric.
Do you remember my 
Renee joined me in a very 
dramatic gasp when I showed
her my find!
Love it  :)
I think that even the grass she put 
in the package is
too, too Cute!
Presentation is everything...

Please take a few minutes to visit
the wonderful blogs that
 linked up for

 I am going out of town this weekend.
 I don't know if I will have
internet access. 
So, if you don't hear from me 
right away you will know why.

Hi Joyce!
Very, very pretty!
I love pretty fabrics too. I have some special fabric I bought a while ago... this pin is reminding me that my fabric needs to come out from hiding :o)
and that I need reacquainting with my sewing machine!

Have a wonderful weekend away!
