What a pleasant surprise...

to arrive home today and find two packages awaiting me. The first is an amazingly beautiful bookmark from Jodie Lejeune at She has a wonderful blogspot that I am sure you will enjoy visiting. The second surprise was a pair of lovely earrings that I won in a giveaway from Dawn at This is another wonderful blogspot well worth the visit. Thank you both for being so gracious. It was so much fun coming home to such lovely treasures:)
This was the handmade bookmark from Jodie Lejeune in its delicate paper doilie envelope. What a creative and beautiful way to package it!
Here is the bookmark which is just wonderful! Jodie, you have a gift! Thanks for sharing it!

All of these lovely cards came in the package with these amazing earrings. Unfortunately I couldn't get a better picture of the earrings without it being blurred. The earrings are pale blue flowers with faceted glass beads and filligree stems.
I feel so special:) Thanks ladies!

Nothing's like coming home to parcels, parcels and more parcels! I especially love the earrings, they look very feminine and I love the color. Actually, I love everything you've shown here.
Happy night!
