A Sweet Thank You~

Do you know Marie @ Lost Bird Studio? Well, I do! And if you haven't met her...you need to! She is a very sweet and talented lady! And generous! She was one of my giveaway winners and she sent me a "thank you" in the mail. All the way from Germany! Do you want to see what's inside the envelope? Follow me...

This is one side of the card.
The front of the card. I just love birds, don't you?
Sorry this photo turned on me. Can you see my initials? :) I love the feather.
Front side of the little tag...
...and the back side.

This was the wrapping paper. Isn't it great?! Such beautiful penmanship. See the date up at the left hand side? It says 1882!
This quilted burgundy suede pouch was on the inside of the wrapper.
The front of the pouch. Such a beautiful heart (Marie's). ;)
What's inside?
A lacey pouch with a pretty pink posie tucked inside of a ribbon. Can you see the paper clip with the little clock on the top of it? Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen? And look another sweet tag.
What's inside the lacey pouch? Lets see...
A BEAUTIFUL cross necklace! And the beads are red...my favorite color!
I told you she was sweet, didn't I? Now go see her and tell her!

From the bottom of my heart, dear friend. Your gift is wonderful and I will treasure it always.


I had the best time with this giveaway. And have met so many sweet new friends. I really mean that. Sharing the same interests and developing kindred spirits. And appreciating each others gifts and talents. Thank you, Lord for this blessing. And thank all of you who care enough to visit and leave encouraging comments.


God bless you~

Sonya

That's so incredibly thoughtful. What a lovely, kind thing to do. I love the wrapping paper too. I love the idea of using old paper as wrapping.
