A Beautiful Gift

I'm participating in a swap in the Marie Antoinette
group where we were to send a pretty box
filled with goodies to our partner. With those
goodies, we will create a Marie/French themed journal.

My partner is the beautiful and talented Holly.
She sent me this pretty book box filled
with the most dreamy selection of goodies.

Instead of choosing what colors we wanted our
goodies to be, we both decided to let our partner
choose for us. I'm absolutely thrilled with her choices!

This beautiful, soft green and pink hankie
was folded in the top of the box....

and inside, was this sweet crochet glove.

I received beautiful fabrics, jewelry,

images stamped on muslin,

beautiful handmade flowers,

and lots of pretty ribbons and laces.
Even an 'M' pin!

And I'm over-the-top crazy about this
rhinestone studded Eiffel Tower!!

I was so excited about all these beauties, that
I just couldn't wait. I started working on my
journal last night, and will have it finished tonight.

I'll show you photos as soon as it's finished.

Thank you so much Holly for putting
together this beautiful package for me.
I love everything!

OH! MY! GOSH! I can't imagine getting a box of that through the mail. What an abundance of beautiful items. And, although you didn't say, I am sure, knowing you, that the reciever on the other end of the exchange is thrilled with her own "box". I can't WAIT to see your journal! Hugs- Diana
