A Surprise!!

A white box arrived in the mail yesterday.
 I love presents!!
 It is from Becca, a wonderful friend, at Patina Moon
 Her blog is about vintage treasures, gardening, photography and mixed media designs.

The tissue paper, an old sewing pattern. Great idea, recycling at its' best.

A beautiful bag and lavender sachet. 
I think the sachet will make a great bookmark.

The little bag is adorned with these wonderful flower shaped, purple buttons

 and contains this beautiful notebook.

With pretty bow in my favourite colour, green

for the garden. 
Thank you Becca, I will treasure your gift.

Take care and
Blessings on this Easter Weekend.

Your gifts are beautiful! Such great work has gone into making these lovely items ... and using old sewing patterns for wrapping paper is a wonderful idea.

What a lovely surprise you received!
It was good to hear from you. Yes, I've embraced my passion for photography. I agree, it does bring a peace, to help heal the heart.
Have a wonderful Easter, my friend!♥

What a lovely & thoughtful gift! The soft muted colors are so serene & calming. Very pretty!

I hope you have a very Blessed Easter, Jen. I imagine it will be difficult without your father this year.


p.s. BTW, I made the simple 2 layers tablerunner. Wait till you see how I turned a goof up on my part to a "design element". It looks really nice & I have some Easter dishes on it this morning. Thanks again!
