They arrived!  I am smitten with these little things.  They are painted to represent our family.  The very talented Erica Daley painted them.  She did an amazing job!  I just can’t get enough of them – they make me smile really BIG.  Growing up in a quilting family and playing with wooden spools when I was little makes these even more special.  I first saw them on Carrie’s blog and knew I had to have a set myself.  I put Erica’s link above if you’d like to have her paint some for you. 

And my son is very upset with me that daddy (and just about everyone else) is blurry in the second pic.  I told him I did that on purpose.  It is one of the cool things I can do with my lens.  He’s like, why would you EVER do that mommy????
