the squeals of excitement were wonderful and beki seemed to choose the most perfect things for each of the girls but you should have heard the ooohhss and the aahhhss over the hand made items beki made for me!! oh such talent, so different to anything i could make but so much to love about it.
presents all lined up... each parcel was labeled with the letter of friends and a theme for that letter. not sure why this has turned?? we have already used the tea set with our pumpkin scones today... so cute and perfect for my book loving, tea drinking mischief maker. lili couldn't contain her excitement and has begun the stitchery already :) (just like her mother) this little fella is for the whole family and is with our other special softies. the cards were so pretty too!
as you can imagine there isn't much left of this now onto my goodies. we had decided to include one present for each other and here is my divine lot. a gorgeous hand towel that says 'eat dessert first' a gorgeous magnet, a hand made button heart (really really great) a hand made gift tag which i just adore and think that beki should sell them at markets, a hand made wall hanging that is beyond words, paisley designed cup cake cases and a white chocolate flower (which i haven't eaten yet). i will give you a better look at the hand mades. all mine!! it has turned again, not sure why it does that sometimes. anyhow this is the button heart art, i just love it.
this bit of wonderful is the other side of my gift tag. the photo doesn't do it justice, it really is lovely. it also reminds me that beki has angel babies watching over her and her family. and this wall hanging is so pretty, i just love it. very clever how she has used different mediums but they all mesh so well with the overall theme...how unique and artistic and clever. the more i look at it the more i fall in love with it. here it is on display, i have since moved it from that spot into my 'studyio' where i can see it right now :)
there you have it parcel goodness for the bonser girls. thank you beki for your generosity and sharing some of your special creations with me!
hope you are all having a great weekend.
