Have you ever received a surprise which simply took your breath away?
Last week my sweet friend Elizabeth of Gossamer Wings surprised me by announcing I had won her Valentine's give away on her blog. I was stunned.
When the box arrived and I opened it ~a double treat!
My heart truly skipped a beat.
I found the most beautifully and carefully wrapped gifts.
In jewel colors with such lovely attention to detail.
And such a fabulous array of gifts ~ personally chosen by Elizabeth. *heart*
I adore every single one and can't wait to put everything to good use. :)
But first ~ I just had to share Elizabeth's wonderful generosity with you.
I hope you'll go visit Elizabeth's delightful blog ~ Gossamer Wings you will find that she is a true bonvivant.
So talented in many ways; a beautiful wife and mother, an excellent cook and baker, a very fine seamstress, with such a terrific sense of style and I love reading about the time she and her family spent living in France, and visits since. She is a treasure, and continues to live a very interesting life.
Elizabeth, thank you so very much for such a fabulous surprise box. I'm so happy our paths have crossed, and I'm so pleased that you're blogging!
