those wonderful spring gifts from my dear friend Julia Vintage with Laces

I think they are very elegant in their old ledger pages,and the brown seambindings.

This beautiful heart was inside one of the packages,I so love Julia`s handmade flower-

And the most romantic and stunning needle book -see the embroidered pearls-

and inside a pocket, and pages for needles.. Isen`t the tag beautiful,also?

Here the second heart , on the bag of the needle book. All pure beauty.

The  card so gorgeous ,and sweet- I love it all, dear Julia, THANKYOU sweet friend so much- it was a very beautiful gift ,and I adore all your creations, 

At the same time Julia send off the gifts to me, I had also made her a a little something to tell her :
"happy mooving"

A collage using lots of laces and lovely old pieces-

and an angel to travel with her to the new adress.

The cord is old golden cord,-not easy to see here- and I used a button from Abby`s wonderful collection

Well I think this enough for today, 

Being here I want to welcome new followers, to my blog- I feel so flattered you want to visit now and then.

And to all of you I wish  a happy day or evening... take care of each other, and be well.
Hugs and love
