A Gift From Normandy France


This Friday I got a wonderful
surprise when the mailman
came driving up the lane
and handed over a 
parcel from
France!


Back in February I won a
Give-Away
from my very first follower
and blogging friend
Catherine
who has a wonderful
blog called


The Give-Away was for
a sweet miniature doll
in a basket
that you could use in 
a doll house.
But when I opened the parcel
all of these wonderful treasures
were inside!


I LOVE this 'days of the week'
picture holder made from 
heavy material 
with little clothes pegs
to hold pictures or
what ever treasures you have!


The days of the week are
embroidered!


I'm going to have fun 
displaying 
favorite photo's 
on this.


Catherine made these 
sweet clothes pegs
with red and white
 polka dot fabric and
little lady bugs.
Aren't they cute!


There was also a lovely
card displaying a spring
bouquet
and a note inside. 


She also made the beautiful
Paris tag.
I LOVE Paris!


Catherine also included 
this wonderful
package of candy 
from
Normandy France 
which is where she is from.
They have Calvodos
an apple brandy from the region
in the center...yum.
Aren't they cute!


THANK YOU
CATHERINE!

I hope you'll stop by and visit her
wonderful blog.
I know you'll enjoy it.

Have a wonderful week!
Maura :)

Hi Maura, I am taking some "Me" time to visit blogs that I haven't been able to do for a while. Your gifts were unique. I liked the clothes pins with the lady bugs so cute. It has started to cool down some this afternoon, maybe the cold front is getting closer. We just have the high winds, but they have taken out the severe weather at the moment. I hope you are having a wonderful afternoon. Take care. Your Missouri Friend.
