How will my other gifts top these?

Sometimes you stumble across a blog that speaks to you.  There are photos to drool over, words to contemplate and a life that you are envious to emulate.  Gypsy Brocante is one of these blogs.  I visit Jill often and one of my comments won me some beautiful gifts!  Oh, I'm a lucky girl!

The little Charlotte's head arrived broken but her face is still intact.  All the more special.

Each present was wrapped deliciously.  My fingers caressed the cabinet cards, the wrinkled seam binding, the millinary flowers, the crocheted garland.

Inside one package was this scrumptious scarf that Jill created herself!  Silky on one side and shabby print on the other.  Not to mention the lacy goodness on the ends.  Yummy!

And the item that knocked my socks off!  A copy of Rachel Ashwell's new book!  Well, I sat right down and oogled each and every picture. 

But the best part?  Signed by none other than Rachel herself!  So special!

Gorgeous photos!  See?


Thank you Jill!  The new cookware that I suspect is under the tree pales in comparison to these gifts.  I am a lucky girl!

Run, do not walk, to Jill's blog and then get thee to the bookstore to get Rachel's lovely book for yourself . . .
