I tried, but I just can't wait

I know I said I would show you something really gorgeous on Saturday, Pink Saturday, but that is still 2 days away, and I just can't wait any longer. I am just bursting to show you, lol. You may have noticed the little button to Celestina's giveaway on my sidebar, and if you have looked recently, you may also have seen the note I gleefully put underneath it. I WAS THE LUCKY WINNER OF HER BEAUTIFUL GIVEAWAY!!!

You know how much I love roses and how I love to collect rose themed little treasures for our cottage in France. So you can imagine how thrilled and delighted I was to win her giveaway. I had admired her soft and feminine rose painted beauties for so long. I couldn't believe how quickly the package got to me, I think someone in the postal service must have realised how much I was looking forward to this.

So, why don't I let you unpack my package along with me? I managed to get my camera before I started. I had to take many photos because my hands were shaking with excitement, lol, but you can relate to that, can't you?

Ready? Here goes -

When I lifted the pretty pink tissue paper, I was greeted by this beautiful big pink rose, such a perfect delicious shade of pink -

Are you oohing and aahing yet? Two beautifully wrapped little packages...... I carefully unwrapped the one in the fabulous Paris wrapping paper, had to save that, of course -

Gosh, its so exciting, unwrapping gifts!

Under the sweet little lavender bag was this -

See why I was so looking forward to this? It is THE most perfect thing for the pink bedroom in France. But that wasn't all. There was also this huge bonbon!

And inside the bonbon was.............

A heart shaped rose box! It is beautiful, I can't imagine anything more feminine on my dressing table. Of course the box wasn't empty -

Inside the box were -

HEARTS AND KISSES ! How sweet is that?

Celeste enclosed a beautiful card, and you know what? As much as I love and adore the beautiful gifts, this card meant even more to me, and its making me well up again right now as I am writing this, because of the things she said. I am such a soppy cow, but I just want to give her the biggest hug! She is one very beautiful soul.

See, now you can perhaps understand why I just couldn't wait until Saturday.

It is unlikely, but if some of you have not been to her blog yet, go and have a look right here.
If you want to see more of her beautiful designs, check them out here. I am going to treasure mine forever.

Oh Liz, that really is a lovely parcel of wonders! Thanks for your kind comment (I see some in the UK have flowers already out - how are they doing it?).

I also wanted to let you know that I've finally finished filling up my old journal, and have started writing in the beautiful (pink!) one you sent me a while ago. It really is a pleasure to open it every night - thanks so much!

Hi Liz,
You are so sweet to share your win. Thank you for the mention too. I am so glad you are enjoying your pretties and I am so happy that your name was pulled from the pink cowgirl hat.
All your gifts from friends last week are amazing. You are so deserving of everything and I know your pink rose room in France is beautiful.

Have a wonderful day and week ahead.
Hugs from Texas,
Celestina Marie
