Mailbox Surprises from New Zealand

Hello blog friends ~ Blessings to you this beautiful Sunday.

Another mailbox surprise gift awaited me again last week and this one was from my friend Carolyn from Draffin Bears in New Zealand. Carolyn won my Christmas giveaway and she so kindly sent me a sweet thank you gift in return.

After opening the pretty gift wrapped package, I found a gorgeous lavender tea towel made in Germany and detailed in the prettiest designs of lavender, beautifully rose scented soap wrapped in french tissue paper, sprig of lavender all the way from New Zealand and a darling tea cup note card. Oh I love it all and what a sweet surprise I never expected. I am being spoiled lately with goodies in the mailbox, but I know the blessings I am granted and thankful to have wonderful friends from blogland.




Thank you so much dear Carolyn. I cherish these pretties because they are from you and I will think of you every time I enjoy them. You are a dear friend in blogland and I am blessed to know you.

Thank you friends for stopping by~
Have a special Sunday and see you tomorrow for a Link Party hosted by Cindy from Whimsical Musings.
XO Celestina Marie

I love the way a smoked background looks. The first time I took a class in smokey backgrounds we ended up making the smoke alarms go off in our classroom - funny but scarey. As always, your paintings are beautiful. Have a great week in your studio,
Brenda

My mom is visiting with me for weeks now...and have a couple more with her. I tell her often of all the lovely blogging friends I get to visit. I need to show her your blog. :)

Hugs... (PS - I went to New Zealand in 2000, it is BREATHTAKING!)
