I have known dear  TERRI for some years now, we have commented on each others 
blogs, and once I won a fantastic giveaway from this sweet woman.
Some weeks ago, I once again was touched so very much
by the kindness from this lovely friend.

I recieved , just like that,-a gorgeous packet from Terri, 
with beautifully wrapped sweetnesses of all kinds.

AND THIS amazing and so beautiful wristcuf that Terri made for me!
I was in love at first sight, with this wonderful jewelry -please click the photo 
to see all the beautiful stones,and crystals- it fits me perfectly, and
is one of my favorite colours: the colour of the Sea.
Thankyou my dear friend, I am so touched by your beautiful gift,-and
kind heart.

And if you look through the photoes you can see that Terri in every way
had made a Sea  theme, in the things she send me.

Beautiful seambindings , wonderful handmade papers,
and a roll filled with the most gorgeous strips of velvet and silken fabrics.
There was also a lovely inkpad in the turquise sea colour.

And here so lovely packed ,seambinding and a stamp,
shown below, -wrapped so sweetly with the feather ,I believe also 
found on the shore.

Dear Terri wrote me that she found the shells in Canada,
when having a vacation there, and
brought them back home to wrap and send some to me!!!

Isen`t it the sweetest thought! You can see  the shells and 
a wonderful collection of buttons ,wrappen in turquise tulle, both.
And have you seen the old papers that I love and the yummy teabags,
she also send me :-)

Here you can see all those goodies a little bit closer..Please
click my photoes for a bigger view! I haven`t beared to unpack these
lovely collections yet---as I so love to watch them in their seablue tulle.

The beautiful tag Terri had already made for christmas , for me,
it is so gorgeous  !
Thankyou from my heart dear Terri, you have made me very happy with all this
beauty, and  most of all by the act of wanting to do it. 
I feel so happy knowing a special kind and lovely woman like you.
I know that many of you often visits Terri and her : Teacup Tuesday-
to see her collection of amazing teacups, -but if you don`t  please click her name,to
see her wonderful blog.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend- here I`m off to watch the 3, period of 
Downton Abbey  - LOVE IT...

and love and hugs to you! from me.

You have a lovely friend in Terry (I love her blog too), though I expect she was also delighted in compiling this gift package for someone who would really appreciate it. I know I do when I'm putting a parcel together when I am in a swap.
