Hi everybody, I am happy to say that the postman brought me a lovely, fat envelope from Diane yesterday. I knew a surprise was on its way, but there were so many goodies inside I was still surprised. Everything was tied up into neat little packages, wrapped with pretty tissue and bound with fine twine, all of which will be re-used, too.
After carefully opening the little packages, all these goodies appeared - butterflies, little smiley beads in the form of moons and stars, beautiful buttons, brads with pearls and gem-stones, fantastic metal keys, charms, sparkly embellies, die cut frames, peel-off corners, masses of gorgeous lace, glass flowers and some of the most beautiful, hand-made paper I have ever seen:
And one of Diane's fantastic cards, with matching paper lining the envelope, and inside a riot of pop up fairies and butterflies. I have received a lot of beautiful cards, but this one is easily the most lovely one ever. Thank you, Diane, for putting so much love and thought into your present. It has really made me feel special!
I spent a lot of time just drooling over all those lovely goodies, spread them all out on the couch and just enjoyed them!
Today I have to go to the orthopedic specialist again for some more acupuncture and treatment for my foot and other aches and pains, so hope it helps! Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!
