A Smile from Sun City

 Just today, the postman delivered a smile for me...from Paris?, no, one might think so after seeing the pretty Parisian box it came in, but the smiles were from Sun City!  I was lucky enough to have won  this adorable needle felted one of a kind art from Penny! Please take a few moments to browse her blog, if you have not met Penny, it is your lucky day. She is a sweet gentle soul, and it shows in the magic she creates. :)

 Please meet Colette! A tiny slice of sunshine lovingly created by Penny, and given away to the lucky winner...ME, through her blog.
I am very fortunate, as is Miss Marie Mousie, my first gift from Penny!  Pictured here with her newest best friend, Colette!

 As you can see, the girls are happy as can be, and are already dancing together!
My beautiful gift was packaged so nicely as well. Penny wrapped her in tissue, and placed her in the pretty box with a magnetic closure. Included was a delicate hang tag, and Penny's card. I am so happy to have won, and SO very blessed to have Penny as a dear friend! Thank you so much Penny, I will cherish Colette!

Good morning dear Christel,
Thank you so much for your most encouraging words about Mary...

Oh Christel,
I have one of penny's dancing mice, it's in grey felted slippers and a tutu that dances about, I adore her art.

Congrats to you to add a bit of wool to your group of molded.
