The Netherlands ...

I love the Netherlands ....
In fact I think I would like to live there ... Not that I've ever been ...
But they have wonderful traditions ... Like welcoming Saint Nicholas on 5th December...
They have the prettiest tulips and the sweetest of people...

People like my dear friend Stella  who just sent me this package


which contained this ...


...beautiful die cuts and a huge letter "R" made of chocolate ... another of their lovely traditions

And would you believe that on the very same day, this arrived?


A traditional Dutch Christmas card, a handmade tea light holder complete with tea light " ... to lighten my darkest hours ..." and the most beautiful handmade yoyo's and crocheted snowflakes ... not to mention... 


yep, another one of those yummy chocolate bars
and these all came from the lovely Jeanneke ... who just happens to be one of Stella's many sisters!

But my happy mail did not stop there ... no, no ... The next day I received this absolutely STUNNING card from none other than the very talented Ira


This is even more beautiful in real life

So yep, I love the Netherlands and the kindness of these lovely ladies ... 

Thank You so much Stella, Jeanneke and Ira ....
I'm so glad we're friends 

Enjoy your Sunday
