Even if it's to my sweet friend Carola's, Boxwood Cottage in Germany...
I felt like you were with me as I opened the "friendship parcel" you sent, I swear I could almost hear your voice, telling me what every little thing was, just like you do on flickr and your blog, it was really cute, lol :)
I loved every little bit from start to finish. You put so much care and detail into everything...and the priceless gift of a dear friend was the most enjoyable of all...
All the things we share in common were in the parcel....
You know how much I admire your soldered pendants...your workmanship is just perfection!! I love them...
Friendship Seeds from your BEAUTIFUL garden to mine... I just know they will grow since they came from your "enchanted" garden!
LOOK at the packaging!! Too PRECIOUS!! ~ Rococo Pansies!!! woohoo!!!
This is just beautiful... It was all tucked in the sweet cone you hand made... It was so fun to pull it out and see that I can wear it in my hair or as a pin/brooch... you clever girl ;)It is GORGEOUS!!
Been wanting a cone for the longest time ... it is soooo pretty!!! I love the color and all the gold dresden details and the scalloped edge...
Another Carola original... " A Token of Friendship" Card/Collage... LOVE!!! & the pretty lace... I tell you, you spoiled me :)
I am so enchanted with this little girl... she really does make me so happy!!
The little red box is adorable and had the cutest bird button tucked inside... I love the "Tinted Shea Butter Balm", yummy, I have never seen anything like it here and the "Eau des Vanillers" is just heavenly....
I also loved the German Magazine, oh my, so much "eye candy"! ~ thank goodness for the pictures since I can only understand "Wilkomen", lol!!! and all the beautiful dresden and little cutouts... I just adored everything!
THANK YOU dear, dear friend...so glad you are only a click away... :)

BUT IF YOU CALL ME ANNE, PLEASE CALL ME ANNE SPELLED WITH AN "E."
"Oh, it makes such a difference. It looks so much nicer. When you hear a name pronounced can't you always see it in your mind, just as if it was printed out? I can; and A-n-n looks dreadful, but A-n-n-e looks so much more distinguished. If you'll only call me Anne spelled with an "E", I shall try to reconcile myself to not being called Cordelia."
You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ~C.S. Lewis
I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.~Jane Austen
One's home is like a delicious piece of pie you order in a restaurant on a country road one cozy evening - the best piece of pie you have ever eaten in your life - and can never find again. After you leave home, you may find yourself feeling homesick, even if you have a new home that has nicer wallpaper and a more efficient dishwasher than the home in which you grew up. ~Lemony Snicket
"The sweetest flower that blows, I give you as we part. For you it is a Rose, For me it is my heart." ~ Frederick Peterson 1859-1938
"I must warn you, Miss Potter, I am more than prepared to like you!" ~Millie Warne
I've loved creating since I was a child..I was blessed to have had very loving & creative parents ~ my father was a chef & the most wonderful of storytellers! Mom was an accomplished seamstress who loved making clothes for all the family & neighbors, a generous soul. They say that what one loves in childhood stays in the heart forever & that is so very true! I love hosting tea parties, gardening, painting & playing with scissors, papers & glue. Sharing is a big part of who I am ~ I put my heart into everything I do, whether it is friendships, crafting, or in day to day endevours. I find inspiration in the written word: poetry,quotes or a special letter from a friend that can make your day or maybe even change your life. I love beautiful music & friends like TiffanyJane who has been the encouragement behind starting this blog :)~ I'm married to my best friend...we love all things in nature but have a special place in our hearts for birds & butterflies. We love to go on nature walks & are always on the lookout for gifts from nature, whether in a park or a walk in our neighborhood. I'm so very grateful for my little fairy tale...
