Last week the postman knocked on the door and presented me with this huuuuuuuuge parcel. I had no idea what it could possibly be. Had I ordered something this big? Errmm, didn't think so. And then I saw the sender's name, and the penny dropped. I have had the most wonderful packages from Alexandra before, so I knew I was in for a real treat, but what I found when I opened the package was beyond any expectations. I am just going to show you the photos with shaky hands, they will speak for themselves -
Isn't it just the most exquisite wall hanging you have ever seen? I was instantly totally in love with it. And then I realised that the pockets were actually filled with presents as well! -
I so wanted to open them straight away, but I thought I save the pressies for the actual day of my birthday.
I am sure you can imagine what I felt like when I saw all these beautiful things, made with love and friendship. One day, I will be able to hug this wonderful woman properly and tell her face to face what an amazing friend she is.
This would surely be enough to make anybody's birthday, but I received two more packages from two of my very dearest friends Dorthe And Suziq. You are going to drool when I show you those beautiful beautiful gifts tomorrow, so be prepared for another long post with lots of pics for you to feast your eyes on.
For now I am signing off, too much to do before we go to France next week.
I am linking this post to the fabulous White Wednesday linky party at the Faded Charm blog. If I haven't worn you out, do hop over there for even more white wonderfulness.
