isn't it gorgeous?
Maria included this card with a lovely heartfelt message inside which left a huge smile across my face. The card is stunning in itself and is now on my bedside table.
Once I unwrapped the gift, this is what was inside.
Now, I took these images as I opened it...I could hardly wait!
This gorgeous sack is where the gorgeous Lavender scent was coming from, and it is chock full of it. When I came back after picking the boys up from School and Pre School, the house was enveloped in Lavender and it was beautiful!
even the ribbon was lovely and I love the number 6 and the lion image on this chunky linen.
The back of the sack is just as perfect!
Another lovely smelling package, wrapped in linen, twine and a cute button.
Gorgeous Poppy seed soaps! =0)
...and oh, I am in love with this...
A vintage linen runner with beautiful embroidery. It is a 'M' for Marley. Mason thought it was for him...um, NO ;0)And finally this. It is a sweet little pillow cover made with vintage ticking.
A soft white linen is on the back and I will be making a little insert for this. It is so sweet.
Now you see why it made my day better?
What a beautiful gift to send to someone.
Maria, these gifts are gorgeous and you are a gorgeous Woman. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Stop by Maria's blog DREAMY WHITES if you haven't already and look at her other beautiful vintage linen finds.
Now onto the next package...
This one I had to sign for and was wondering what it could be...
...it was presented beautifully...
...and all the way from France!...
As soon as I opened it, I knew who it was from
IT'S A VINTAGE FRENCH POSTCARD!
Now, I did know this was coming as a while ago the gorgeous Vicki sent me an email letting me know she was sending me this card in the mail, but I had forgot it was coming with all that I have in my head right now with Christmas orders to get through and the like. So it really was a surprise...a beautiful surprise!
For a peek at Vicki's amazing French Life visit her blog FRENCH ESSENCE
It is from the sweet Tine, who has the gorgeous blog URUGUAY LIFE.
I had commented on one of her posts a little while back about some lovely wooden pegs she had and how they would look great with my embroidered peg bag I recently made
...so Tine sent me some! She is so sweet.
Again, inside was a lovely handwritten note, some gorgeous white embroidered ribbon and this little block type postcard...
...on the other side is this vintage image of a Woman.
Here is a close up of the springs on the pegs. I love them. The ones we have here are drab!
Thank you so much Tine for your sweet gift. It just goes to show that blogging friends are the most thoughtful and caring Women around and I am continually amazed by the power, camaraderie and friendship we all share even though we are miles away.
...I did have a little happy cry surrounded by the thoughts of these lovely Women and I thank each and every one of you out there for making this journey such an enjoyable experience...and for making this get a whole lot better =0)
Have a wonderful weekend, Ness xx
