Judging by your comments yesterday, you quite liked the goodies Alexandra sent me, yes? Alright, so that is somewhat of an understatement, lol, just kidding. You LOVED it all! You can imagine how I felt. But, as I said that was only part of it. Because she couldn't fit everything she wanted to send into the bag, there was also the treasure outside the bag! I am just going to shut up now, and let you see the photos. You'll be gobsmacked. Promise.
Look at it, all this !!!
Of course you want to see everything properly, don't you? Here goes. A gorgeous Eiffel tower heart with a proper Eiffel tower charm -
It just so happens that one of the guest bedrooms in the cottage is done in blue, so guess where this is going to live? Yep, you got it.
A piece of THE most beautiful sea green embroidered silk. I wish I could capture the colour and sheen properly, but its so difficult -
Then there was this intriguing little package -
and inside? This -
Isn't that just exquisite?
What about this beautifully wrapped little something?
A sweet little tag with some original ephemera and the sweetest little trim, and inside -
I think I might frame these, because they are so pretty.
And yes, there is still more, unbelievable, I know. This little package felt as light as a feather and I was so intrigued as to what could possibly be in it. Well, feathers was a possibility, lol. But instead of feathers there were these -
Tiny sparkly diamante jewels. I didn't dare breathe in case I huffed some off the table. I found an old pill box of mine, stashed away since my student days in the early 70s, and put the beautiful diamante in there for the time being.
A sweet little music sheet envelope filled with religious medals-
The prettiest pink lace -
Another fab envelope -
A PARIS bag, woohoo -
This one is soooooooo beautiful, so delicate -
And another pile of amazing ephemera -
They all seem to be church records, like birth/baptism records, wedding bans etc. Marvellous.
I am planning on making a wall hanging for the French cottage with some of the beautiful pieces Alexandra has gifted me with. But that will take a lot of planning, because I want to do those beautiful things justice. So don't expect anything in the very near future, lol.
Now I am off to try and find ribbons for my tag for the Tag Tuesday challenge over at Kard Krazy .
