Pretty in Pink
Hope you all had a good weekend. Very lazy and relaxed here. Much eating of chocolates and oranges, lolling around on the sofas watching films and playing games and 48 hours later it's over. Weekends really should be one day longer. Something that more than made up for the greyness and apparent shortness of the weekend was this little parcel here. I love getting parcels (even when I'm expecting them). Look how beautifully wrapped it is, shame to open it up ...
... oh my, how pretty is that?! A parcel from Michele that had had me glued to the front door waiting for its arrival, since I ordered it on Wednesday night, a belated Christmas pressie for me, much nicer than a new woolly jumper! Michele at Cowboys and Custard makes the most beautiful box frames filled with vintage and nostalgic childhood items that more than feeds my need for whimsy! A beautiful vintage 1920s/30s bisque doll stands cradling her little doll against vintage ephemera and the whole thing is charming (can't think of a better word to describe it). If you click on the photo it should enlarge. I followed a trail a few months ago that landed on Cowboys and Custard doormat and was made to feel very welcome indeed. It has been wonderful catching up on all her funny, warm and touching posts and I am so pleased to have been able to have made contact with her too. Thank you Michele, I love it. Go and take a sneaky peek at her blog, you probably won't be leaving empty-handed!
