Lavender "Pillow" for Etsy-----and a beautifull package from A Little Bit French

For many years I have collected those little round "Flacons", french used word here,
for little round table-cloths that we used to place under vases,or candleholders....

I have used them for angelwings, but today I suddenly got this nice
idea!  I folded it over,placed a bag inside filled with Lavender,
and then collaged it on the front.

I used old laces, buttons, made a rag-rose, and
sewed on a vintage photo ,copied on cloth.

I love to imagine ,that this woman could have knitted the -flacon!!!!
It can hang in the lace wound wirethread.

Last week, I fell so in love with one of Rhondas (A Little Bit  French) notebooks,and some
wonderfull laces, That I had to buy it. And after 9-10 dayes it was here.

When opening ,I first found this wonderfull bunch of lace,
together with another (right corner) soft colored piece lace, and,the piece of cotton
closed with a wonderfull  pin and a tiny holy emblem, all gifts, from this sweetie.

And those two packages , aren`t they beautifull?
Inside one was this small sweet notebook,see
all the laces and wonderfull ribbons, dear Rhonda have used around the edges,
and the sweet little charm.
I love it Rhonda.

A little peak inside!!

Do you remember the brown Paris-envelope from phote above?
Look what this dear lady had hide inside!!
Lots of wonderfull french inspired tags, they are gorgeus,
Thankyou so very much dear friend.
Rhonda also gifted me with the big bunch of the softest beautifull lace (in upper
right corner), the same as I had ordered from her,that you can see, in the
sweet stamped cloth pin.

 I so adore it,and the sweet stamp on the cloth pin,too, that
hold the lace I had ordered.
Dear Rhonda, it was the most beautifull, and lovely gifts you send me ,
I love it all very much,sweet friend,-Thankyou ever so much, I`m overwhelmed,and you made me so
happily smiling.

It is nine o`clock and I want to go wisit some of you,
so Happy day and evening to all,--- all around the world.
I send you hugs, and love.
