What is soft and subtle and pretty as can be??

.... My lovely goodies from Bluebird Lane .... (sigh)



Just how pretty is this? And this is just the packaging! Ooooh! I just stared at it for ages, couldn't bring myself to open it.... the prettiest gift to myself.

Of course I did open it.... look.....



Oh my... my mouth was watering...... so dreamy isn't it.... 

I resisted touching anything, just couldn't bear to open those little packages until this afternoon, when I could resist no more....
Just a little peak for you though - I'm saving this card till next week


See? I used some of that scrunched seam binding - only a little mind, got to make it last....

I am going to share something though - remember I told you about my beautiful Aunt in this post and showed you her embroidery here? Well we are going over to Lincoln tomorrow to see her (yay!) and I thought you would like to see one of her paintings...



There was a picture in one of the daily newspapers of a lion with his cub, looking every inch the new father that hadn't slept too well (Lol) .... my Aunt saw it and decided to paint it... She hadn't painted for more than a year as she recovered from a double mastectomy following cancer, (at 83! I ask you) I just love this picture - which of course has my name on it! And I am so very proud of her - she is my inspiration in life...
What do you think??

Have a great weekend...
Till soon,

Ros
