Christmas came early for me....

Dear friends, I feel so lucky...
I was one of the winners of 
Marie's  divine 'French Christmas'
Every time I've visited her blog
 I've been inspired by
her dreamy creations .

... but when her magical parcel arrived
it was much much more than I imagined.
I couldn't believe how beautifully
everything was presented...
the exquisite angels wings tied on
top of the parcel with ribbon...
this is Marie to a T
the detail is breathtaking.

Also tied to the parcel was such a sweet card
(French inspired - just what I love)
with a lovely message...

The lace detail on the top of the stocking
so beautifully finished with a pearl and rhinestone brooch.

Marie included one of her trademark
soldered embellishments too

it's so delicate

and this sweet wire heart
with a soldered 'Noel' tied with delicate lace

... and these lovely vintage tree decorations
all in silver and white
my favourite colours for Christmas.

Merci Marie
I feel very spoilt!!!

I'm linking to Becky at

leaving such lovely  comments.

Take care and be kind to one another


Joyeux Noel

  12. There is such attention to the tiniest of details in your goodies. Lovely to win!

  13. Thank you so much for your kind words,Shane and I'm so glad you liked everything.It was such fun to wrapping it all up)

  14. Oh you are right Shane - your Christmas came early! I want to change the fabric of the stockings I bought at Farmers years ago when I lived in NZ. I am thinking of covering them with hessian and adding lace and vintage brooches. I don't have time this year though - too busy selling cake stands and I have my first booking for a wedding to supply cake stands for next year!. I had a big craft fair last weekend and have markets right up to Christmas - plus a custom wreath and crackers to finish for a friend. Remember when you encouraged me to make them to sell? Most people are not willing to pay the price for the work involved though, so they are a one-off order for me and I will stick with the cake stands for now! Have a wonderful Christmas if I don't pop over to say hello again as my next few weeks are going to be hectic!

  15. Exquisite! A lovely parcel of beautiful
    goodies to enjoy.

  16. What an absolutely gorgeous collection Shane! Congrats on your win; I can certainly see why you are so delighted!Marie's attention to the vintage style and details is realy breathtaking.
