Gifts and Buys

Hello Everyone :) WOW 400 followers   It is always such a joy to me that so many people follow me and a shock each time I reach another 00  Thank you all so much. As promised I want to show you the items that I bought while on holiday. But first I will share my delight with you. A couple of days after I arrived home the postman called and handed me a big package. Hmmm from who was this I asked myself .  From Greece but I wasn't expecting anything from Greece even more important it was from Anne  "littlethings "Well believe me I did not wait to take a picture of Unopened  large package sorry lol . Anna had sent me a surprise package just because wow. When I opened the package these magical beautiful gifts were inside.
One of her very special " Anna Style "cribs. Its even more beautiful in real.
It even has 2 tiny drawers under it and look what I found inside :)

Also more lovely books.

She also sent me one of her very much admired prams.

Thank you Anna from the bottom of my heart. I love your gifts and will treasure them. Anna's husband had a stroke recently but Thank God is doing well. If you don't know Anna's blog then please go and visit you wont be disappointed. 
These are the items that I bought in San Francisco  I tried to buy only what I couldn't get at home really I did try lol.

Trims I love lace and ribbons :)
Glass bottles and fimo cutters and yes transparent push pins I can not find these at home at all. 

Mirrors and even some lovely frames. Who could resist these wonderful silver shoes :D

Yes I did fit them all in my suitcase lol after leaving a pair of slippers and a nightdress behind but it was soo worth it hehe. Now all I need is to find some energy to use all this stuff :D
Thank you all for reading my posts and all the always wonderful comments.
Hugs to All My Friends

Ruth Ramaekers said...

What a lovely surprise to come home to! I do follow Anna's blog and she is so generous.
It's exciting to bring back little treats from abroad isn't it?
I just had a visit with my parents this evening, they picked up some kitchen accessories at a miniatures store in Oregon, USA.
They were upset because my mom had left it in her suitcase, which is at my Dad's cousin's condo, and we were meeting for a brief dinner.
I told them not to worry! I'll go to visit my Dad's cousin and pick up my treats later. She's a lovely woman and I enjoy visiting with her. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip.
