* Gifts From Creative and Delightful Carmelina *

My beautiful "2000 Follower Give Away" gifts from Creative Carmelina! 

I apologize for the delay in getting my photos posted, but I was having problems with my camera. And as usual, the colors don't seem quite right, but if you click on the link above, it will take you directly to the specific post with Carmelina's gorgeous photos.




Carmelina is so creative and talented. She used a dress pattern as gift wrap!



This elegant crocheted starched tea cup set is just beautiful!



Lovely hand crafted floral note cards with envelopes!


Two of my favorite things in the whole world: embroidered flour sack towels!



Charming pink doily and white crochet dish cloth!

and...........


Since Carmelina is such a sweetheart, she included some extra gifts for me!
The above cream colored doily with lovely embroidery in the center.


And....these darling handmade pins!



What a fun surprise when I opened the box brought by the mail carrier!
Thank you again, Carmelina! I will definitely use and cherish my gifts!
