After walking with Mathilde yesterday,by the beach, coming inside my kitchen, there on
the table, was a packet. I had not ordered anything,so I flew over to se the sender, -and my eyes opened wide up, as I read, the name JULIA .Julia from Vintage With Laces, has become a dear friend, but never in my life I would have thought she would -just like that- send such a precius
gift to me...

I opened up and here was the most beautifully packed things inside

This wonderfull way of making an envelope was on top of the parcel

and underneath the most beautifull egg, I so love this polka dottet paper,
and see the beautifull flower the sweetie made on top.

opening it up ,peekt out a nother little egg,
isn`t it beautifull,all nested up in old paper cuttings

Next to ahhh and ohhh over, was the handmade yarnholder,filled with
the most thin and wonderfull old laces,
Julia I so love this fragile old laces--
and on top of that a clothes-peg also filled with wonderfull laces.
I am sure you want to know what was inside the paper envelope!!!!!!!
a collection of wonderfull laces,-see the sweet little hearts,and the so special
I think ,chrochted flowers-and Julia`s flowers are so beautifully made,

Here the 3 eggs ,and this sweet little bird, just look how all goes so elegant and wonderfull together, -I`m going to didplay it together,-maybe in an old silver tray,you will see.

And -yes I know it was lots of photoes, but I had to show all of my many treasures,from the ever so sweet, and loving Julia, -dearest friend, this is such a fantastic feeling ,to recieve a wonder of a packet ,without any other reason, than you Julia being a lovely person.
From my heart thanks, and love and blessings to you dear.
I know what to do,-just give me a little time Julia.
Also thanks to all my other friends for your alwayes sweet,and inspirering words to me,it means a lot, to open up my mail every morning ,and recieve words from each of you.
Today I trawel home with Mathilde, and will be back here again sunday.
Till then , love and hugs
