Don't you love when the mail comes? I don't know about you, but for me getting the mail is fun. Well, usually. Sometimes it's nothing but bills and flyers. But sometimes, like yesterday, it's this:
Gotta love Marie Claire Idees. The pictures and ideas are so creative and inspiring. Now if only I could read French. You can purchase a subscription through Amazon, by the way.
And even better......this:
A gift from my friend Lisa. She made this piece of art for me. Isn't it sweet? A fun surprise to open up! It says, "Friendship is a serious affection; the most sublime of all affections because it is founded on principle, and cemented by time."
And then, this arrived in the mail a few days ago. I ordered it from Lauren Mumford's etsy shop. It can be worn as a necklace or belt or it can be hung on a hook or peg or draped around a dressform. It's a length of old velvet ribbon with here and there "bits" of lace, buttons, jewels. Just wonderful, don't you think? I saw it and had to have it.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
