My mail carrier brings the best treasures and today was one of those special days when something pretty arrived from Connie of Rose Porch Designs and blog~Living Beautifully. Recently she has been designing gorgeous aprons and she had one I could not live without. It was a shabby rose with black check accents and beautiful details. Wow, does Connie ever make the prettiest aprons. I tell you, her workmanship is awesome. So today it arrived and I was more then delighted to add this gorgeous creation to my cottage.

I also recently entered her give away on her blog for a pretty hanging tea cup that she created. I never win anything, but, to my surprise I won and that was also in the box. Talk about another beautiful piece. It is just darling with a pretty rose pattern and filled with moss, dark pink rose and leaves all tied with a sheer white ribbon for hanging. I can't wait to put this pretty in a place of honor too.

And lastly, she sent me a pretty french inspired soft burgundy box with bees scattered all around, just because she thought I would enjoy it. And, truly I do. I love boxes and I have already placed this one on the tub ledge filled with a few goodies for a luxury bath. That may not happen, but it sure looks good. LOL!

Thank you for letting me share my mailbox treasures.

Thank you my friend!

The above picture is our master bathroom tub area. The walls are soft light yellow with dark pink, soft pinks, red and sage accents. The combination is soft and pretty and follows into the bedroom attached. I will show more pictures of that at another time.
