Keeping the postman busy

Oh, I do love it when my bloggy friends keep our postman busy. Look what he brought me yesterday afternoon, a package from Denmark, and that could only mean one thing........ it was a package from my friend Dorthe, yay! The first thing I saw when I opened the package was this -



Beautifully packaged blingy embellishments. The bag was tied up with roses, a religious medal and the letters of my name. How sweet is that?!?

Dorthe's packaging is always beautiful, so beautiful that I didn't really want to disturb anything -




Inside the package was...........

 this exquisite angel!

The details are superb, from the lovely bead embroidery -

and her wonderful halo/crown -

to her dainty wings -

Next to her in the package was a sweet little heart -


And finally, there was this stunning Christmas card -



So lovingly and beautifully made. I can't help feeling Christmassy when I am surrounded by so much Christmas cheer from my friends. Hugs and kisses to you, Dorthe!

From one sweet angel to another. Isn't she so gorgeous Liz with all the beautiful little details added like the beads.
From the letters of your name, medal, bag of metal elements to the dear little velvet hearts and roses.
All put together just for you because you really are special!
Friends like this in blogland are just one of those special blessings!
Sending some beautiful fragrance from our Christmas Lillies here!
