Everything's Coming Up Roses!

Today, I woke up to a very big, unexpected
surprise! We're having an 'Everything's Coming
Up Roses' secret friend swap on the
Marie Antoinette site.

And, this arrived today, revealing
Rebecca as my secret friend.

There's a beautiful feather bird, hankies, flocking....

a sweet Marie paper doll, ribbons, laces, trims....

pretty images....

And this 'to die for' vintage box....

was filled to the brim with flowers, and other goodies.

I just kept unwrapping one gift after another....

of sweet surprises.

And they all came packaged
in this beautiful rosey tote bag!

Thank you Rebecca, for this
beautiful and very generous gift!

Hubby and I are leaving tomorrow for a fun
little vacation. For three of the days we're gone,
he'll be away playing in a golf tournament.

And then, because I've been sitting in our hotel room
(happily creating) all day, poor me, he's going to take
me out to the thrift/antique stores for some shopping.

hehe! My kind of vacation!

Hi Debi,

I am so dang jealous of all these great goodies you received. Are you sure you NEED them all? 'Cause I'm just sayin' I'd be happy to take some off your hands. lol

Thank you so much for your sweet comments about my lost diamond. I am really crushed about it right now and hope I can get over it. I'm going to have to like it or not I guess.

BTW, Your cuffs are 2DIE4. Just beautiful. xo
