Beautiful Gifts From a Friend~

Hello my dear friends! I want to share what I received in the mail yesterday! My sweet friend, Katherine at Chatelet, wrote me and told me she was sending me some awesome smelling soap that she gets from Scotland. Well...I should have known from previous experience that that wouldn't be the only thing she would send me!

She MADE this for me! It is SO beautiful! Double click so you can get a better view of it. The photo does not do it justice! I love it, Katherine!

Here is the pattern up close. I love the creamy white and silvery gray that is in it.

I have NEVER smelled soap that smells as good as this soap! I shut my eyes and smell it and it smells exactly like lilies!

Katherine had one of these sweet tweets in her last giveaway! She knew I loved it, so she sent me one! Adorable! Deacon LOVES it too!! :) It is so cute.

This was inside the package too. She said this is part of a song from one of her favorite Polish Bands translated into English. Just beautiful.

This stunning cross necklace was wrapped inside of the paper.

Can she make beautiful collages or what? Look at the detail of this piece!!

Please double click on the photos to get a better look.

This is what the sides looked like clear around the collage. Bead work clear around.

This is the back of the collage. This fabric is beautiful.

This is the back of the collage on the right hand side.


Are you swooning?

Aren't the details amazing?

See what I mean?

Always love the pearls and bling! :)

More bling! Gorgeous butterfly!

And of course CHOCOLATE! I love my chocolate, how 'bout you? This chocolate is to die for, have you ever tried it? Well, I have and it is heavenly!

Thank you so much to my wonderful generous and sweet friend, Katherine. She has amazing talent and a very giving heart! I will cherish these gifts, dear girl!

Please go visit her and tell her how incredible her talent is!

This next couple weeks are going to be busy, busy! Thank you so much for stopping by and for all you wonderful comments. I hope everyone is having a great summer.

Blessings and love,

Sonia, I think I've come back here 3 times to drool over that beautiful sweater! What a treasured gift along with all the OTHER special treats, too.

I'm going over to Katherine's to see if she talks about HOW she made it.


p.s. Thank you for your compliments on Ms. C's pettiskirt. I hear she even took it to FL to wear around Disney. LOL
