A Special Gift from a Very Special Friend!

Oh I am so excited!! Why? Because I got a special present in the mail from a very special friend. :) Last week I came home to find a box on my front door. I rushed in and tore open the paper (sorry, I'm one of those that doesn't open things daintily, lol) and here is what I found inside. Just the SWEETEST GIFTS of all and from the Fairmaiden at Sea Cottage. She has the most quaintest sea cottage you have ever seen. She's also very romantic and her blog often features her sweet little feet. Go there, you'll see what I mean. :)

Isn't this apron A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E? I think I once said I probably wasn't going to collect aprons. I think I am changing my mind now! I have received two as presents so far and I love getting them and wearing them! Okay and it's the closest I can get to Donna Reed. LOL!

Making friends with my other special aprons...

And aren't these plates adorable?? So cheery and so summery!

And this sweet, sweet, white vase. It goes so well with my "farm-ish" theme. :) I waited until today to post this because I wanted to display fresh hydrangeas in it.



And princess Mocha saw what I got and insisted she model next to the beautiful vase and hydrangeas. She said she would add a touch of cute-ness. :)

Thank you ever so much, Fairmaiden. You have a heart of gold and a soul of an angel. You are the most "feminine" blogger I know. :) I hope one day we can meet for real! I am dying to see that cute little vintage trailer of yours. :)

Michelle~ I'm so excited you got the gift safely and liked it! The white pitcher is what I just had to get you...I knew it would go well with your country cottage theme. If they had some of those french dishtowels last time I was at IKEA I would have put some in your pkg!!! I just might have to slip one in a big envelope for you...do you have an IKEA nearby?
I do so appreciate the friendship I have made with you...and I hope to come visit someday. My best friend lives in Oregon and I haven't seen her in 4 or 5 yrs. I need to make a trip up North.

Well, I am so glad you liked everything. I hope you will cook up some yummies while wearing the vintage apron! Love, Fairmaiden
