Christmas in Paris

Bonjour my friends,
no I’m not in Paris but that’s how I felt when I received my swap from my dear friend Alexandra over at Cottage Dreams. Oh,la la but have a look for yourself!

Isn’t the box just gorgeous?? Alexandra used my favorite image from the Graphics Fairy and look at all the lace she used. Oui, all kind of treasures in the box!!!DSC00937
I’m so in love with the Paris bracelet she made for me. Oh, everything was wrapped up beautifully but I couldn’t wait to open up the packages. Sorry.DSC00941
I’m not good with  long posts, usually I manage to mess them up somehow. So I’ll let the photos do the talking.  Are you ready for more treasures?DSC00949 DSC00942

This is an old coffee sack, which I love, but how do you photograph it?
Dear Alexandra, thank you so much for this wonderful swap and all the treasures you
