It was a lovely day here made even lovelier for me by a very kind and generous reader Lauriane from Brazil who sent me a beautiful gift-well several gifts really.
Lauriane sent me this beautiful handmade shoulder bag specially made to match the colors she knows I love.
These beautiful tulips are grown here locally by Vanco and I look forward every winter to their arrival in the grocery stores.
Here is a peek at the beautiful place mats also from Lauriane. I love the little tea cup hand stitched on them and they are a pretty shade of pink.
And this lovely pink victorian toile make up bag was also in my parcel.
When I opened my parcel I was so excited I had to have a tea party!
Can you see how pretty the pink placemats are with my pink dishes.
A close look at the shoulder bag-I love the lace heart.
And even a cute little teacup that belonged to Laurieane's grandmother was included.
and wonderfully scented soap!
Can you believe it,there was more- a beautiful tea themed hand painted wooden tea chest! .
It didn't take this tea lover long to fill it up with my herbal teas-it is perfect!
Why don't we have a cup of tea? I think I will have peppermint-what about you?
Love these glasses from Homesense.
Thank you so much Laurieane(pop over and see more of her lovely handwork on her blog)-I am so amazed that some one I have never met would send me such a beautiful gift all the way from Brazil .It really made my day!
I am joining Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound today.
Thank you to all of you who come to visit me,
