The first piece of mail to arrive at the cottage after our arrival was indeed such a package :-), a birthday gift from my sweet bloggy friend Marie of Lost Bird Studio!
This sweetly decorated little bag...
contained these two little packages, beautifully wrapped -
Oh my, just look at those gorgeous dangly bits, teasingly poking out of the wrap -
This is the most beautiful soldered charm I have seen Marie create, I really love the image she used and the soldering is so beautifully done -
She also sent me something to play with, some enamel tags, yay! -
I think I may use that beautiful charm to make an assemblage necklace with. I have some rosary chain bits and some rather lovely beads........
And because it kind of fits in with the photos of the beautiful religious charm and because it is Sunday, I thought I'd also post a photograph of a beautiful statue of Christ outside a home in Luzy, the closest town to us where we have a couple of supermarkets and a regular Friday farmers market -
