A Thank you and a Sneak Peak

About a week ago I told you all about the surprise in my inbox. Obviously I was a bit excited about winning a giveaway from my idol Miss Mustard Seed. Any piece of furniture she's ever done is an inspiration to me and on top of that she is a wonderful Christian woman. 

Last night at dinner I excitedly told my family about how I had started on a secretary that I would finish with my new Milk Paint but I was still waiting for the UPS man to show up with it!! Sure enough after dinner as I went out to the car I saw a big box next to our side door that we never use!! Yay!! 

I took a picture of the box 'cuz I'm a dork and Marian (aka miss mustard seed) had written on it so beautifully but I couldn't figure out how to blur my address so you don't get to see it, sorry! ;) 

I did take pictures of everything inside it this morning when I had some light though! I'm telling you it was like Christmas morning searching through that box finding little packages like this!

And this is also dorky...but just knowing that my absolute hero had sent it to me herself was enough to make me giddy :) And the fact that she had sent way more things than I expected was just too much to take!

Clay Tags from Freckled Laundry

German Glass Glitter

And of course...

Her Book!!

Signed to me!!

Her new line of Milk Paint!!

And I forgot about the letters of my name already all sparkly with german glass glitter and magnets on back! I may have gotten teary eyed by the end, and Scott may have rolled his eyes...

But anyways!! Here's a sneak peak of the piece I've gotten started on! The outside of it will be painted with some of my new Milk Paint!!

I just want to say thank you so much to Marian for her kindness and generosity :)


  1. I recognize that secretary! It used to be in my room.....disregard any writing you may find.....

  2. Wow!! That's a lot of freebies!!!!

  3. Wow! Heidi, that is a lovely surprise package from Miss Mustard Seed. She is one of my heroes too. I love that she is so genuine and giving. You'll love her paint. I can't wait to see how your piece comes out. Let me know what you think of the german glitter glass. I was thinking of getting some for Christmas decorating. x

  4. *virtual squeal*)

    Can't wait to see the finished product.
    I'm so happy for you.

    (I've always wondered, does German glitter glass shed like regular glass...all over EV-ery-Thing?)
