Mail from France

I assume I am not the only one who greatly appreciates real mail

and parcels even more...

so you guess my excitement when the mail lady brought this package to my door

all the way from France from lovely Kirsty

a big thank you package for the baby blanket I made last summer for her newborn boy

she did the embroidery and I love it ~ so pretty and even the back is beautiful

it is hanging right above the piano now, so I can see and enjoy it every day

the Paris teatowel is for my husband ~ to be able to do the dishes in style, of course

the wonderful French fabric looks like a beautiful scarf to me

and the delicious cookies from the Provence, named calissons

there was yummy chocolate too, but that was gone before the pictures were taken


Kirsty, thank you again for this beautiful and delicious parcel

~ love ~


  1. What joy....and all the way from France...enjoy my friend! Hugs to you.

  2. i love mail too...what a special package..

  3. Wow. I have never seen embroidery like that. Leave it to the French. And lovely cookies from Provence ... you are a lucky girl.

  4. Wat een leuke spulletjes! Het witte borduurwerk vind ik echt heel mooi!
    Dank je wel voor je aardige mailtje:) Sinds een dag of twee kan ik weer berichtje schrijven zonder dat het verwijderd wordt:)

  5. How lovely, to receive a package from France! The embroidery with hoop is very vintage chic and the cookies look heavenly. And your husband does the dishes! I am impressed. I recently saw a pattern very similar on tea towels at Williams and Sinoma; I almost bought them. :) Thanks for sharing your wonderful thankyou goodies with us!

  6. Het borduurwerk is werkelijk prachtig! Het hele pakket is mooi en de koekjes......heb ze vorig jaar geproefd in Frankrijk! MMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm jammie!! knufzz...peebee

  7. Everything looks prettier when you photograph it, Maaike! Glad it all arrived safely x x x
