My dear friend Yvonne from    Yitte  read on my blog,that I was not feeling well, and wanted to cheer me up, and send off to me the most stunning gifts.

I simply love this beautiful journal cover, she made just for me.The fabrics are wonderful and there are so many lovely details, like my name embroidered .the colour pensils in holder,the sweet mopp buttons in their own frame, and lovely ruffel around the front and bag.

See isen`t it beautifully done!

And I love the spine decorated with buttons and ribbon.

And this is the inside of the cover  with the sweetest card tucked inside.

But that was not enough, also I found this gorgeous collage in the other packet.
it is so very beautiful, so wonderfully textural, and filled with little pearls embroidered onto it.
I wish you could see the lower part better, it is  very thin ,and created with only lots of yarn pieces sewn together -so very beautiful,

I love the colours of spring dear Yvonne used and the piece of nature in the corner.

See the many wonderful layers, and sweet text -the laces and bright colours.

On each packet dear Yvonne had maschine embroidered a tag-this one is filled with lovely lavender
is so beautiful and smells heavenly.

And this is so sweet with the bird bringing the key to Paris.

My very sweet and dear friend, you truly made me feel so much cherished and happy when I opened up all this beauty you made for me.
I can never thank you   enough for the joy you brought me Yvonne- thankyou from my heart ,it is a daily pleasure seing the collage on my wall, and the notebook on my table .


I would have shown you another most beautiful gift my dear  LIZ  send me from France- ,but thought it should have its own post, so you will have to wait with that , my sweet friends

For now I wish you all the most beautiful and perfect wednesday.
Here it is grey sky but whom knows......maybe the sun will show up later :-)

I send you all hugs and love

We can't say it often enough, bloggy friends really are the best. They care, doesn't matter if you live round the corner or thousands of miles away, they laugh with you and cry with you, and they make you feel better when you are feeling low. And they are the most generous bunch of people I have ever come across. Yitte sent you such delightful gifts, you got to be feeling heaps better now, like a new woman, lol.
