A heart full of kindness....


J'aime le coeur!!

Today I received a surprise gift
from my gifted friend Yvonne
in the Netherlands,
please visit her lovely blog
where you can see the
beautiful handwork she creates.


I LOVE all the details of this
french heart -
the pretty floral background fabric
embellished with beautiful lace
and beading, and french words
Je t'aime


a sweet vintage button
reminiscent of Marie Antoinette


some pretty blush pink fabric roses

and soft satin ribbon
with mother-of-pearl buttons


and finished with my initials
embroidered on the reverse!


Also in the parcel was a
fragrant lavender sachet -
only Yvonne can embroider
roses like this!



My beautiful heart
now makes up a pretty
vignette
just inside our front door.
EVERYONE
has commented on what
a beautiful work of ART
I've been given.....

THANK YOU so much
dear Yvonne for making me
such an exquisite gift - I'm
"over the moon"
YOU are one of Blogging's
real treasures!

WELCOME
to my newest followers:
Leslie of Trouver le soleil,
Jillayne of A Fine Seam,
Julie of The Cloth Shed and
Gusos of Gusos Santos.
Do pop into their blogs
and say 'hello'!


I hope you have all entered
giveaway!!!
Closes on Sunday 27th.

Thank you my dear friends for visiting
and especially those of you
who leave me a comment - love you!!
Be kind to one another
hugs
