Christmas Arrived Early...

in my home!

Look at the pretty wrapping!

But more excitingly, this was nestled inside one package... toes! How did that happen?
 An amazing quilt in my favourite colours of red and aqua,

 See the blocks with the sweetest little bow ties in the corners!

And the fabulous French fabric... 

And will you look at the Spring garden on the back!

With its hand embroidered label!

All fantastically hand quilted by my dear friend Mary!

It has brought back many fond memories of my holidays in Paris...

And will make me think of my special friend every day!

Can you tell I love everything about my beautiful new quilt!

Words don't seem enough!

Oh, I almost forgot!

 This sweet tea towel was in the other package....

from Anthropologie! 

- but I don't think any dirty dishes will be coming anywhere near this

any time soon  


Thank you again Mary, I will treasure my early Christmas present, always!

Happy days indeed!
