My heart skipped beats.....

~ A magical gift ~

Hello dear friends!

As the title of this post says
"my heart skipped beats"
the day I received a wonderful parcel from
my dear blogging friend

I have followed her lovely blog
for a few years.
She writes about her home and garden,
 her amazing travel exploits
often to quite remote destinations

An exquisite grey heart

and also about her visits
to antiquey shops/flea markety places
you know what I mean!!!

I've always wanted some fairy dust!

I left a comment on one of those posts
which sparked an idea for Mary
and the result was
this beautiful gift she sent me
quite out of the blue!

a beautiful collection of tags

vintage linen and exquisite bobbin lace

Everything in the parcel is divine,
telling me that over the years she
has got to know me very well!
dear Mary - you have filled my heart with
"I'm over the moon and dancing on air"!

So to celebrate - I'm joining these parties
