Birthday Surprises!!!


I received some amazing treasures in my mailbox from some wonderful blogging friends and I couldn't wait to share them with you....My dear friend Celeste of Celestina Marie Designs has been designing for over 30 years and has thousands of customers in her Etsy shop--She created this box. You can imagine why she is so popular!! What a treasure this is, indeed!


This beautiful box arrived with this gorgeous handmade card and clip--so precious!!!


I was already in 7th Heaven when I realized there was yet another surprise inside--this exquisite fleur de lis!! WOW! Being from New Orleans, this has a special place in my heart and I am already wearing it!!!

This absolutely beautiful handmade card and tag arrived from June of Dezinaworld--I was so surprised and if that wasn't enough...

June sent me one of her Lucky Treasure Bags!!! I really wanted one!! It is filled with decorating treasures. June is the owner of Dezinaworld--one of the premiere online shops for images. She has just "rolled out" these Lucky Treasure Bags for her customers and they are incredible!!

My dear friend Donna of My Shabby Chateau sent this gorgeous wooden box that was designed with shabby goodness!!! I opened it and was so surprised!!! I adore her style as do so many of her clients of her fabulous Etsy shop!

Just look at the detail--with sheet music inside--"Be still my heart!"

And Donna sent this precious handmade card~I adore the little girl and the baby buggy!! It is so, so darling!

My dear friend Melody sent me a vintage cookbook~Melody is from Brown Gingham Creations! But look what else she sent~

A beautiful vintage apron...and guess what? Melody completely embroidered the apron!

I hope it is possible to see the intricate stitches~She is so talented!! This is truly a heartfelt treasure.

Thank you all SO much--You made my birthday so special and I can't begin to tell you what this meant to me!!
XO
Cindy
