Sweet Gifts From A Precious Friend

My sweet friend Lynda visted Rachell Ashwell's beautiful place in Round Top Tx. recently for a jewelry workshop. You can read her first post about it by scrolling down to the next post. She will be sharing more pictures soon. Lynda makes beautiful sterling silver jewelry and wanted to expand to making vintage inspired jewelry. Lynda surprized me a few days ago by giving me one of her first pieces of vintage inspired jewelry, and OMG it's absolutlely gorgeous!!! Well just check it out for yourself.

I'm very excited to annouce that we will be carring Lynda's new jewelry line on our website within the next few months. You can check out her website here at Now I want to share another beautiful gift that my dear friend Lynda gave me after the jewelry retreat at Rachell Ashwell's. She visted Rachel's linen store and gave me the most beautiful pillow slips that you can see in the next pictures coming up.
This was on the front of the bag that she gave me. Who wouldn't get excited when seeing Rachel Ashwell's name on the bag.
When I opened the bag.... the most beautiful and soft pillow slips.

I've decided their to gorgeous to use. I will just display them on my bed.

I'll post again when we get the vintage jewelry on our website, it will take a little time for her to get everything ready as Lynda also has a full time job. Hope everyone has a great week!!!
