Gift Recieved

I recieved this gift from a blogging friend in Australia. I love the card she sent me. I do not do scrapbooking so I love cards made like this.

In my package was also this lovely set of coasters. I love the birds on them. They are so colorful.

This is the fabric bundle she enclosed and the beautiful piece of trim.

After my mom passed away in March she ask me for some pictures because she wanted to make me some scrapbook pages. Here are just 2 of the pages she did for me. They are all beautiful. I will always cherish them. The V is for my real name. This is my mom and I when I was only a few months old. I have this picture on my headboard shelf above my bed.

This is my mom and I many years ago at her home. I remember having it taken very well.


  1. What a lovely gift and card! Enjoy! It's always so fun to get gifts from our international friends!

    Have a very happy 4th of July!
    Thank you for visiting my blog today! :)

  2. Tudy I am so glad that you love your gifts. the birds are called Rosella's and they are truly beautiful. If you are lucky enough you can actually get them to feed from your grandma used to have a feeder on her balconey for them when I was little.

    I hope the fabric pieces come in handy for something.


  3. What great gifts! They are wonderful! And the scrapbook pages are great! Congratulations on Addison, and hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!

  4. How special are those
    I think I see Terry in your Mom in the younger picture of her.

  5. These gifts are so lovely!

    And the pages you did of your mother are so elegant and such a beautiful tribute to her!

  6. P.S. Oops. Forgot to ask -- is that a wild rose in your blog header? They are simply gorgeous!
