You must have been a fly on the wall to understand the grace and thoughtfulness behind every gift here. Look thru the photos and see. Anna has created a novel setting for me. Thank you Anna, truely, from my heart! You had already out done yourself, and now with this most special package...your generosity is unmatched! You are so very kind and thoughtful!
I can get cozy in my sweet shawl, sipping any number of heavenly delicious teas (tasting the English tea first), snacking on divine chololate, reading Teacups full of Treasures, Mitford series or an Anne novel, all while listening to the Celtic Woman, which I just recently took off my "wish list" because I thought it may be to expensive.....Crocheting a doily in thread, just about any size...80 perhaps? With, yes, dare I say a hook size 15 or 16...Oh Joy!!!!! Is it a sin to be this happy? lol. My tea will stay warm in the sweetest tea cozy, one of Anna's own designs, and it has the most darling little rose buttons, yes, they do look like Queen Elizabeth Roses...also my favorite, Anna does know me very well. Smelling potpourri of Morning Dew, there is also coffee, which I can not wait to try, stickers, Ferrero Rocher, a calander, Leisure Arts Lacy Snowflakes, beautiful blue beaded purse handle, Bernat baby coordinates yarn in 3 colors, an asortment of thread, All new sizes to me, and my fingers are itching to try.
Now, my goodies, made by Anna, the tea cozy described earlier, the most beautiful shawl. I am utterly stunned by this, in pink, it is heavenly! This purse, I must admit...I was going to buy the pattern to make one for me, I wanted to work out the fat bottom bag first (the Fat Bottom is cute, but there is no comparison to Anna's bag, hers is so charming, reminiscent of Ladys' in days gone by), Anna...how did you know I loved this purse? This is also one of Anna's designs, and it is in brown and pink, one of my most favorite color combinations.. Doilies.....they are added to my 37 Doily Challenge...so beautiful! The small one is maby for my tea cup and saucer as a coaster, the detail in it is lovely! The pink scarf is made of the most unusual fibers, I cherish this scarf...I'm wearing it now, I just can't bare to take it off yet! Anna, Thank you is simply not enough...I must invent a new word that means thank you. After all this description, I am speachless, it amazes me at your attention to detail, there isn't anything in here that wasn't thought about. I do love the Blue Moon beads, they are more exquisite than I would have imagined. The purse, I am wearing tomorrow with a new pair of heels I purchased a few weeks ago, the same color, I just didn't have a bag to match..Thank you! I hope I haven't left anythig out, This was my first exchange, and Anna choose me, this was simply the best exchange I believe I could have ever participated in, both my known and my unknown have become dear friends of mine...I have some really big shoes to fill next time..lol...Thank you again Anna! Now, off to send you a thank you...
