They arrived in this most gorgeous box, that Liz created , in her 
so beautiful and romantic style!! which I love- see all the tiny pink
stones she added , and the beautiful old drawing of the sisters!!

Here they are ,so beautiful,  inside  the cover from the box!

Hello Dorthe,
Such pretty gifts. MMmm I love French soap, the perfumes in it are divine.
Liz's box is wonderful and the napkins are gorgeous.
I hope you are enjoying the summer. It's been lovely here so I have been taking time out and enjoying the sunshine.
Sending you smiles,

Hi sweetie,
What a great post! I love the lavender sachets from Yvonne, so pretty and I'll bet they smell amazing. Liz's stuff is great too, need to check her shop & see what's left:) Love the napkins too, we have a couple of stores here that sell great paper products and I always buy a pack or 3 of napkins. Now I'm hoarding napkins, LOL Hopefully soon you'll get another belated birthday gift.

Hello my dear sweet friend, Dorthe
What a beautiful selection of gifts from dear Yvonne - those pretty sachets, fabric, dear little mouse and napkins - all the things to create more beauty with!
That was such a gorgeous box Liz created for you to hold those special rosaries and more trims - You are truly blessed sweetie!
Hope the weekend too was so special with the sweet grand kids. It will be hard to get back to "normal" after all these wonderful days you have been having of late.

Hi sweetie, of course we love to see the beauties you receive from your sweet friends. They're eyecandy to us and it's so heart warming to see them, because you can tell that there has been a lot of work done to make them and carefully wrap them to send them to you. Just like you do when you're sending your precious gifts to them. It's always such a delight to see and so generous you all are. That's something I learned from you, by seeing yours and your friends' gifts displayed and hear you tell about it.
Big hug to you! xx Wendy
