Thank you Gail and Manuela

Pin It Now!

I came home from work yesterday and there were two packages for me! One from Gail McCormack from Australia and the other from Manuela from The Feathered Nest (click on their names to visit them).

Manuela sent me an email last week and said she had Jessica McClintock's Simply Romantic Decorating Book and it reminded her of me so she sent it to me. Isn't that the nicest thing ever!!! It came wrapped so beautifully too! The book is gorgeous! I love it!
Gail sent me a package of goodies that were wrapped in a beautiful scented rose paper. I had already ripped the paper off before I realized I should have taken a picture of it. The best part was that it smelled like roses! Gail sent me a set of beautiful note cards, two bookmarks, and a door hanger all made from her beautiful rose paintings.

See the teapot in the picture above? I found that at the Goodwill on Sunday. It's a Kath Kidston! I was thrilled when I saw that! It was only $3.99. I think I'm going to frame these two note cards. They are my favorites! I hung the door hanger on my bedroom door and it looks so cute!
Thank you Gail and Manuela! You are both so kind and generous! I was so thrilled last night opening these beautiful gifts...it felt like it was my birthday or Christmas...it was so wonderful! Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!
