May Gifted Gorgeousness

Hello again. It is GG (Gifted Gorgeousness) time. You can read more about it in Jo's of 
Serendipitous stitching blog post where you can find all the linked-up blogs too.
Unfortunately this month I haven't stitched much. I finished my craftpod hoop.
And I hang it on my craftpod hoop wall.
I also stitched very little on the April bookmark on the Bucilla Flowers of the month bookmark kit my friend Marabeth gifted me with.

This is another gift I received although not cross stitch related. I hope I will stitch a Santoro girl one day. This notebook and bookmark was a gift by my best friend Gia.

But I can't possibly leave you with so little. So here you can see my Easter candle handmade by my friend Dimitris Mangoulidis.
And these are some vintage stitched finds from the open flea market that I couldn't pass.
By the way this is my balcony. I have prepared it for my spring and summer time out and hope I will manage to stitch a bit here.
That's all for this GG. Hope you enjoy all the links! Hugs.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month.
I love your hoop wall, the designs all go together so well.
Your balcony looks like a nice spot to stitch. I did use my conservatory during the week but it's being used as a woodstore so it wasn't very attractive LOL

Ωραίο το μπαλκόνι σου, Αριάδνη μου. Είμαι βέβαιη ότι περνάς όμορφα εκεί τα απογεύματα. Μου αρέσουν πολύ οι σελιδοδείκτες σου και τα όμορφα δώρα που έλαβες. Σε φιλώ, φίλη μου.

I have enjoyed my visit this morning. You have such lovely pics. Your hoop is lovely, and sits well with the others on your wall.

Your hoop finish looks great and I like how they are displayed on the wall together.

It looks like you have a nice place to stitch, I hope you get to use it frequently.
