If you do, then look what the postwoman brought me,last week.
Already when seeing whom send it, my eyes were big,as I know
makes the most fantastic art.
Opening up, the packet I saw, was wrapped in this wonderfull handdyed piece of fabric.

and out of it came this sweet and lovely card. Viola could not know,but
this old card,showing 3 sisters- almost looking like the 3 of us.
My little sister alwayes a little round, me with my long face, and my mittle sister ,yes -just in the middle
of us, in face shape,too.
Thanks dear Viola

There was also this special ATC -

And then friends, look what this dear soul  giftet me with.The most gorgeus little shoulder bag.
Look at all the detaiels, and the so yummy colors.It is fantastic, and so lovely heavy,hanging .

And such a beautifull work of art,I`m totally in love with it,and already used it.

But my goodness, there were more,(see the tag )  sweppet inside a wonderfull old embroidered fabric pice,
I found:

the beautifullist (can you say that?) collage,  ever---the colors cheeting a bit here---
you can immagine that my heart hopped ,holding this -
see the soldered Paris charm,all the flowers added,laces,pearls,stones,all in the
quiet beautifull tones of beige,creme,and a tiny spot of blue

I love it Viola, ALL and every thing,-you are a so giftet artist,and the most
generous friend,-thanks from my heart dear, you not only giftet me with all those gorgeus pieces,but also
gave me a happy day,by knowing you did all this for me.

Showing this beauty, I`m wishing you all, a very wonderfull week-end.
Hugs and love to all my dear friends.
