A Gift.......

At the end of February my dear friend Barb arranged for me to meet a lovely lady Angela and to see her garden. I had the most lovely morning that day. Barb had also arranged for me to choose a beautiful charm that Angela made for me.

This week, I met up with Barb and received my beautiful gift. Thank you so much again my friend.

Angela paints the lovely little water colours onto old papers and then solders them into the beautiful charms. I just love the beautiful minute details. The little box that it was delivered in is also an absolute work of art. Covered in lovely old music and then waxed and tied up with a sweet pink ribbon - all just me to a tee!!!
The lace in the background was a recent find at the "thrift" shop!!! Just beautiful.
So glad the weekend and the school holidays are here. I so look forward to the weekends at the moment when I hopefully don't have to venture very far from my home and garden.
A trip to the large Bunnings near us last night produced some lovely purchases that will need to be planted out tomorrow. I will show you more next time. Looking forward to a great weekend.

Hello Leisa! That is your gift set in the picture! The pic is darker than it should be because it is actually brighter and a pretty pink. Autumn's dishclothes are different. Sorry you had to see it already but I just had to post a picture! The pillowcase is pre-washed, ready to use. I hope the postman hurries to! I was told it will take 2 weeks. I love the beautiful charm you received! It is just lovely! Have a wonderful day Leisa! Hugs, Maryjane
