See that adorable French Market hand towel on top? That was in the package...so adorable! I am definitely now a collector of cute hand towels. :)
And since I am now a collector of vintage aprons, she sent me this back issue of Romantic Homes magazine that features aprons! What a sweetheart to give up her back issue for me!
Don't you love how the aprons are used as curtains?
And look at the adorable card that came with it! This is SO Fairmaiden.
On the back of the card she wrote a beautiful poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The note was written in her own handwriting...it's so sad that handwritten notes are not the norm anymore. Reading this in her own handwriting really made it that much more special to me.
"Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."
And just look at the envelope! She took the time to decorate them with these sweet, sweet butterflies!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Fairmaiden. Your friendship and special, thoughtful gifts I hold dear to my heart.
This gives me a GREAT idea! I'll have to get back to you on it (hence my bad habit of procrastinating). ;)
