Happy Surprises..







































What a happy surprise I received yesterday in the mail from my dear friend LaVieEstBelle
She has a blog and is from Malaysia..She takes the reader on her travels to many different places, explains the temples and the wonderful operas..in her part of the world..Introducing you to the people as she goes visiting..Just a fantastic blog and one everyone should read..
First picture is the envelope that my note came in..second is a handkerchief that are used in Chinese weddings..then the wrapping paper the last gift came in..A beautiful hand held fan..
The fan is made with real pressed flowers/foliage which has been tastefully arranged to create a beautiful design..If you will notice the word "HEI" on the envelope, paper and handkerchief..which means "Double Happiness"...What a lovely meaning..and such a touching gift. Thank you so much LaVieEstBelle for even thinking of me and taking the time to send me such treasures..



Till next time, keep looking up..

I love the attention to detail in every element of the gift, including the packaging -- so thoughtful. (I have such a weakness for paper and fabric with Asian characters -- I've been trying to incorporate some into my own items too, even though I can't read a word of what I'm using.) And now I'm off to visit the blog that's responsible for your lovely gift!

This is a very thoughtful gift.

Your love birds are adorable too. Your story about Yoko using the hamster wheel as a ferris wheel is cute. I enjoyed having that image in my mind:)
