And I was the humbled recipient of one of those, a just because gift from a dear bloggy friend. A little while ago Salma emailed me to say that she had collected a few little bits and pieces which I might like, and that she was sending me a little package. And a couple of days ago that little package arrived. My goodness, this girl knows me well, just have a look at the lovely lovely things she sent me -
Beautiful pieces of lace fabric -
The sweetest little lace embellishments -
This tiny little scrap of paper was pinned to two tiny little fabric samples -
Handmade broderie anglaise trim -
Some wonderful pieces -
including this gorgeous collar -
and this darling little handkerchief with the sweetest little embroidery, the name Molly -
this piece of fabric is amazing, embellished with tiny beads -
aren't these things just so lovely?
Then there were these gorgeous laces -
and the cutest little sewing accessory I have ever seen, a little drum to store needles -
two more little treasures, a lovely old cabinet card, and an exercise book with some sweet drawings -
I am so delighted with these beautiful things and just want to look at them and touch them for a while before I start thinking about what projects I could use them for. Thank you so very much, Salma, I really am humbled by your kindness.
Salma's blog is written in German, but even if you don't speak the lingo, it is worth visiting her blog, because her photography is so amazing, fresh and modern and so uplifting. Guaranteed to brighten up the dullest day.
I'd like to link this post to Becky's Blissful Whites Wednesday party over at her TIMEWASHED blog. There are always so many beautiful whites to drool over.
