Then I received another surprise gift from another dear friend from days gone by--my former roommate Nancy. She sent me the adorable little mouse which is atop the plaid box. She came in this box, and I loved it so much, that I decided to display her with the box. Nancy knows my love of reading, but how did she know that HEIDI was one of my all-time favorite children's books? This little mouse lady is holding a copy of HEIDI!
My other little studio "friend" I got in Nova Scotia years ago. She holds a sign that says, "When life gives you scraps, make quilts." What great advice!
Oh, the snow man peeking over the jar? That's one that grandsons Malcolm and Dawson and I made either last year or the year before! I was thrilled to see all the snowmen they had made on that occasion prominently displayed in their living room with all the other Christmas decor!
