A French Birthday Gift

Today I would like to share with you what my very dear friend Julia @ Vintage with  Laces spoiled me with.
The most beautiful petit lavender pillow with my favorite image on it ,she knows me so well:) Can you smell the lavender? Vintage lace and price tags but there is even more.

This beautifully altered bottle - love everything about it.

A beautiful card and it doesn't stop here.

Dear Julia also gifted me with one of her lovely collages.So many details, you can click on any photos for a larger view. As you can imagine I was just thrilled and speechless.
Dear Julia, thank you so very much and you know how much I love everything you send me.
I feel so very blessed and lucky to have so many friends who made my birthday extra special but the best gift of all is the friendship.
Here is a little teaser for a very dear friend.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend my dear friends and a happy 4th of July.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.

Hugs and love,

Oh Marie how gorgeous are those gifts. I love this colour palette, a colour palette you use yourself of white/cream and winter white, I would love to be able to work with these colours but know I could never pull it off like you girls do.
Everything is so precious. If anyone deserves gifts such as these, it is certainly you.
