Hello sweet friends! I came home yesterday afternoon to find to boxes on my front porch! Guess who they were from? If you guessed my friend, Katherine, then you are right! Go visit her blog, Chatelet and tell her hello and how wonderful she is! She told me that packages were coming and that she had sent them last Thursday. She said the postman reassured her that they would arrive in time for my birthday! Really? They arrived 4 days early! That was FAST! I sent her two packages awhile back and I think it took 3 weeks! I just had to share all the precious gifts she sent! Warning! There's a lot of pics, but I couldn't leave anything out. I'll try not to talk too much, k?
This beautiful package is for my bath-they're called Fairy cakes and fancies. I wished I would have taken a pic of the soaps! They look good enough to eat!
This sweet package had...
This beautiful journal that Katherine's daughter, Magda made me! I LOVE it! I can't believe this was her first one she's ever made! Thank you, Magda!
Isn't this a gorgeous rose? And the book...
Shakespeare in German! This book has such a beautiful texture to it too!
This lovely wrapped in silky material and a beautiful flower that I know Katherine made herself.
Gorgeous, isn't it?
Inside was this fragrant Floris candle with the hyacinth scent! Heavenly!
This precious pink package wrapped in a fabric that I can't think of the name of right now is so beautiful with the pink jewel attached.
Isn't this box fabulous? I love everything about it!
It contained this Honey Almond Shea Butter soap that I can't wait to try!
Some lovely french soap in Lilac, lavender and violet scents.
This wonderful lacey goodness was tied and a pearl gem attached to it.
Tucked inside were these lovely little salt and pepper shakers. I have a few of these that I love setting at the table for each place setting. It looks lovely in candlelight.
This adorable doily was tied up into a little ball and inside...
was this bath truffler scented with Fig and Pink Cedar. Mmmmm.
This beautiful tin was filled with delicious candies that Katherine made herself.
Heavenly scented sugar coated orange slices dipped in chocolate!
I just couldn't wait! I showed my husband and he said that I better give him one now, or there wouldn't be any left! :) He's probably right.
Dear Katherine made this too.
A little box holding my guardian angel inside!
Guess what was inside this pumpkin felt bag?
Yep! Candy! Delicious polish candy! Is your mouth watering?
I love this book, Katherine! Is that me on the front with the little poodle? :)
This awesome burlap bag with...
jars of apple/pear jam, plum/apple, plum/chocolate (yes, I said chocolate!) and a spicy papaya chutney like jam, that she made herself! I can't wait to try them!
This wonderful goody bag was for Deacon. He was SO excited!
He has part of his costume on. :) He LOVES Spiderman and is always pretending to be him.
A treat from Katherine's daughter Vanda. It makes BIG bubbles! He wanted to play with it right then and there. It was only 9:00 at night and it was pouring outside!
A puzzle book...
Candy with a glowing light on the top when you push a button.
Can you tell he liked it?
Deacon says, thank you Katherine and Vanda!! :)
This card that Katherine made me came in the mail yesterday too! Can you believe they all arrived together?
Thank you SO much my dear friend! You have made this a wonderful birthday week and have really boosted my spirits! I'm so thankful for our friendship. God bless you and your two lovely daughters.
I hope all of you dear bloggers are doing well. Are you getting ready for the Christmas holidays yet? I would love to hear about it!
Thank you for your prayers and well wishes for my husband. He is slowly getting his health back, praise God! I think the prayers are working on him!
