A SURPRISE FROM THE U.K.

A parcel arrived for me the other day and it was post-marked 
from my friend LEE (http://leescraftycorner-lee.blogspot.ca/)
in the United Kingdom. 
 I was not expecting anything so I was 
anxious to see exactly what it was.

Well, this is what it was....






First of all, 
Lee made me one of her famous
House Mouse cards.  It is like a
breath of Spring air.












These adorable PINK fabric 
baskets were flat and just needed
to be tied at the corners
with the ribbons to assemble them.










And finally, this incredible little
hand-painted canvas.  It's uncanny just
how much it looks like
my LILY.

The details are incredible.
This artist is very, very talented.






It's hard to express in words, especially from so far away, just how touched
I am to have received these gifts from you, Lee.  It is my dream
to one day be able to meet you and thank you in person.

But until then,
BIG BIG HUGS to you, my sweet friend, LEE.

♥♥♥♥♥♥

And thank you to everyone for stopping by,

~Bonnie~
