Warning!!! If you read this you will be jealous...
I celebrated my birthday on Sunday, went to lunch with the fam and then I had a work meeting to attend at 6PM. (BTW the lia sophia girls had cupcakes, a gift and they even made me stand while they sang Happy Birthday, so it wasn't a bummer to have a meeting that night.)
Then...I got these in the mail...
What is more wonderful than a package from the mailman, with all of the possibilities it holds? How about two packages?
Not one to ponder too long on what might be contained within these tempting boxes, I promptly tore into the first...
Sweet Ms. Jodie LeJeune, my bestest Cajun buddy sent me a lovely rose printed card as well as one of her signature tags. Gorgeous!
Look what else! One of her beautiful stuffed hearts with a darling button tag attached, Everything Vintage of course.
One side is just as perfect as the other. This is one talented gal, if you don't already know that. Jodie, thanks so much for remembering!
Then of course I had to rip open the other package... Another rose on this card from sweet Bella best friend and roomie Sandy, who made me laugh so hard I couldn't breathe.
The cute little heart tag inside says it all.
The things that we love tell us who we are.
Well Sandy, I definitely love you!
There were little packages inside the big package to open. Lavender flowers made from netting...
Pink floral pins created from knitted trim...
A packet of words to inspire.
Adorable paper doll fabric, to encourage me to sew a bit.
An unbelievable bracelet of buttons and snaps keeping with Sandy's blog theme Sew Revived. This gorgeous pendant of glass and filigree.
As well as a CD of images to use in my collage work and a box of chocolates filled with peanut butter from her home town. (These, alas, are already gone, tee hee)
Girls, you overwhelm me with your generosity and talent. How could I ever want for two better friends. I wish we lived within shouting distance instead of spread out across the country.
Jodie and Sandy, I am sending you big hugs. Hope we get to reunite soon. Love you both!
Have a wonderful weekend, P.
