Good Thursday morning everyone! It's a bright, sunny beautiful day here in Kendal. After yesterday's much needed rain (although it was quite heavy for awhile!), it's nice to see Mr. Sunshine again and the humidity isn't too bad... yet :) Yesterday I received a wonderful parcel in the mail... I've been waiting for it for a bit and our postal system can be very slow at times. So after being completely soaked from the rain because our van window won't go up( I really hate automatic windows in vehicles and would much prefer the wind up ones, I eagerly opened the mailbox door and to my surprise, a brown envelope was just waiting for me! I knew it, I knew it! So rushing home and drying off, I carefully opened the envelope, boy was it taped good! lol, and than unwrapped the sweet prim tissue paper, and this is what was inside! A beautiful handmade prim bonnet made by Lecia over at Farmhouse Prims. It is stained just perfect and I love the colors. Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful bonnet and for making me smile on such a rainy, stormy day!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Blessings and hugs, Trish
