Simply Neutrals Tuesday - Surprises

I love getting surprises from friends, who doesn't? And on Sunday, when we got back to France, I got two beautiful surprises from two wonderful friends.

I checked the mail box after we had unloaded the car, and was so surprised to find a letter from my darling Suzy. Had to open it straight away of course, and this is what I found  inside -


Wrapped in that very pretty napkin were these -

two locks of the softest, silkiest hair you have ever touched, from Suzy's goats,

and some of the gorgeous rose trims she uses so beautifully in her collages -


Now I wish I was in England in my craftroom, lol, so I could use these beauties. But then I look out of the window or door here at the cottage, and I just wish I had brought my craftacase with me :-).

After we had unpacked and settled in, we drove down to visit our friend Frank and Christine, and thats when I received my second surprise. Christine knows me so well and she had found something so beautiful for me -


She didn't realise it when she bought it , but it turned out she bought a really beautiful Edwardian wedding veil!




and she gifted me with it!

Two thoughtful and beautiful gifts from very dear friends, I just had to share them with you for Wen's much loved Simply Neutrals Tuesday party.

Have a great weekend, wherever you are, toodlepip xxx
