Mindy's Penny Arrived!

WooHoo! It came today! I've been waiting for this all week. Last week Mindy, at Ranmond Homestead had a give away. She was giving away this very cute and primitive penny mat that she made, when she reached 100 followers.

Surpriseingly, I won! Waiting........I was excited for the mat to come. It looked so perfect in Mindy's pictures. The colors would look great in my home.   I opened the package...... On top was an envelope with this card. A picture of the mat she was giving away. I opened the tissue slowly, enjoying every moment, drawing the suspence out......

It is so lovely! It is perfect for my home! Mindy's work is lovely. The muted colors in the over dyed wool, adds depth and texture to the piece.

I'm just lovin' looking at it as I write letters and work at my desk.
Thank you so much Mindy! It is a lovely piece of folk art. Be sure to visit Mindy at Raymond Homestead to see what else she is up to.
Thank you for visiting,
