He said it was “Christmas in July” Ironstone and A Grain Sack Pillow

When I was away at the Haven Conference . . .

~ ~ when speaking to my hubby one evening, he told me that it was “Christmas in July” around here.

Apparently, three packages arrived for me that day . . . Oh, I love packages on the porch!

One of them was a package from my sister-in-law of pictures that I will share later.

Christmas in July

I ordered something from Mary Alice’s Etsy Shop . . .

~ ~ and the cute brown tissue wrapped package is from Kelly (My Soulful Home).

I won a grain sack pillow cover from Kelly!!! . . . She was celebrating a “blogaversary”

Chateau Chic Etsy Shop

Love the way Mary Alice embellishes her card with vintage items . . .

~ ~ my key collection is growing!…and this is my very first vintage clock face.

Kelly attached this ever “So” cute sewing pouch . . .

Ironstone

I was drawn to the shape and pattern of this piece . . .

Mary Alice has such great things in her shop.

~ ~ such as the great Dundee Marmalade Jar and Breadboard I purchased a little while ago.

Ironstone

I love the basket weave and floral pattern on this Alfred Meakin bowl.

I have a few ideas on how I will use this piece.

Grain Sack Pillow

Here is the gorgeous grain sack pillow that Kelly made . . .

~ ~ I love how she embellished it with the ruffle and denim trim . . . she is so talented!
