THE MOST AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL GIFT FROM LISA


Some time ago I ordered the most cute old baby boots, from my dearest   Lisa`s   Etsy Shop


And they arrived in this beautiful handmade bag...aren`t they adorable?
I love baby boots, and thiese are so sweet.


But  my  dear friend Lisa ,made my heart beat extra when opening up the package -
where her wonderful card first appeared...Isen`t it beautiful!


Because beneath this I saw  a gorgeous book appear!
The cover made from the back frame, of an old picture , see how  wonderful , it is closed with the brown velvet and an old mother of pearl buckle.


And you won`t believe the beauty being revieled ,when opening up the many pages, in Lisa`s stunning book.


This  sweet family of 3 , could be me ,my daughter and grandkid :-)
I love the border of flowers....


See the stone heart Lisa gave me , I feel so happy for such a token of blog love, --and the lovely girl so fantastic in her own little life-cirkels !


I love every page ,and every little bit of fabric and paper ,-dearest Lisa used for this book,: a Kids summer subject,-- and it is filled with beautiful transfers of  lovable kids--, this gorgeous page also with dried flowers,under a lovely transparent piece of fabric. 


And this with the sweetest verce in Sweedish, so I can read and understand -it is called:
Summer prayer! and is beautiful.


A tiny wonderful old book with childrens verces of Robert Louis Stevenson- incluted is  : The land of nod, which I so love.


And seing this page,made me cry (happy tears) - this is my darling grand daughter Mathilde, and my dear sweet Lisa, put  her in this book for me, too. 


Together with all the other lovely photoes -


and pages with amazing old fabrics and laces- and beautiful old bits and pieces of jewlery and nature items.


See the  spine, Lisa made to bind it all, and the little"tail" of buttons and a mussel.



On top ot this stunning book, I also found a big bunch of wonderful transparent fabris and laces,
and also a handfull of the sweetest serviettes , with birds and some golden embossed ones.


Can you understand I am in awe ,over this gift ,made with so much love ,- it is an amazing treasure that I will love and cherish for ever. 
Lisa my dear, you don`t know how happy you have made me , I alwayes admire your so amazing art pieces, and to actually hold one of your books in my hands is so very special.
Thankyou from my happy hart dearest friend-and mostly thankyou for your friendship, which is so precious to me.
