A Treasured Gift

 Hello everyone,
       I have some beautiful new treasures to share with you today. These treasures arrived in the mail a couple of weeks ago and they are from Wanda a very kind fellow blogger from Regina, Saskatchewan.
 I remember when Wanda showed this beautiful little covered soap dish on her blog and I fell in love with it! I never would have dreamt that someone I never met would know how much I would love it and send it to me.
 Now the little covered dish was not the only treasure that Wanda sent to me- this beautiful matching mug came with it.
and there was also the lace and linens you see here.
And I also loved the old postcards that she sent as well.

A pretty hand embroidered tea cozy came with it.




I think they look perfect in this green toile bedroom.


 Now some of you probably already know Wanda but if you don't please go and have a visit with her at her lovely blog Victorian 1885 and say hello. Thank you so much Wanda for these lovely treasures you truly made my day!
I am joining Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home again today where once again there is always lots to see!
Thank you to all who visit me as well,

Carolyn

How nice of Wanda to gift you with these treasures Carolyn. They are perfect in your green toile room and the lace items are so dainty.
I won one of Wanda's giveaways last year and received beautiful vintage linens.

Wonderful treasurers. How kind of Wanda to think of you like that. You have done the gift justice in your photos.
Our spare bedroom has a green theme. It looks nothing like this. Hmmmmm. Time for a re-think, me thinks. xx

ARTESANATO EM GERAL said...

Carolyn, boa noite. Fico encantada com tanta beleza e sua sensibilidade em tudo que prepara e retrata. É um verdadeiro sonho. Se eu fosse descrever o paraíso, com certeza seria o seu jardim. Não canso de acompanhar seu blog e se hoje tenho um sonho, é estar tomando um chá com você no seu jardim.

Moro em Macaé, estado do Rio de Janeiro, Brasil e gosto muito de artesanato e também gosto de fotografar o que faço. Meu blog: laurianecantinhodasartes.blogspot.com

Obrigada por tanta beleza.
