A lovely card with gifties!

Even though I knew Tatting-Marie was sending me something, I wasn't expecting these lovelies!
I don't think I've ever seen such perfect clunies in person! The poinsettia is lovely and the way she put it on the card allows me to take it off and frame it or use it as a bookmark. The teensy angel ornament was inside the card. She's about 1 1/4" tall and has that tiny thread bow around her neck. Can you imagine tying that thread bow???? It also has a clear hanger to put on my little tree (which isn't up yet!).

But that's not all! Inside the card she shared a photo of a tree decorated in tatting and I'm assuming Marie is the tatter of all the angels (and a few crocheted ones) as well as the ornamentation on the tree skirt. Do you recognize the patterns? I see patterns by Monica Hahn and Mark Myers and Martha Ess and a few others.

AND...she also tatted a kitty bookmark! All the current cat residents are shades of black,gray, and white but the cat we had for years and years before that was an orange tabby that we called Rusty. He lived to be 18 or 19 years old, as far as we knew - coulda been older, and was quite the character. This bookmark makes me think of him.

Thank you Tatting-Marie in Florida! You brought some sunshine to my cold cold home!
