Gardening In Style

 Hello my dear friends,
I will be gardening in style now since  my dear friend Julia @ Vintage With Laces  created this pretty and tres chic apron for me.Truly a gardeners dream come true.


 Julia also surprised me with this gorgeous needle book - I always wanted one:) she must know me well.




 The inside is beautiful as well.
 When we decided to swap out gifts and Julia asked what I wished,  I told her I was dreaming of a thread catcher similar to the one she made for herself  a while back.

 
 Thank you so much,dear Julia.You know already how much I love everything. Oh, everything was wrapped up so pretty but I could not wait and only have two quick shots of the wrapping:)

 Just to give you an idea.

I'm sure most of you know Julia and her beautiful Blog Vintage With Laces already but if you don't
please go and have a look at all her gorgeous work and find out what I sent out to her as well.
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday and as always thank you so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment. I'm still having renovations going on so it will take me some time to catch up with you.

Hugs and love,

If there is one thing I take away with blogging, it is that there is an enormous generous community of friends here. Your apron from Julie makes me want to garden right now!!

These are such tender and beautiful gifts. Have a wonderful day, Marie.

How lovely to receive such beautiful gifts made with you so much in mind. The apron is so practical and beautiful at the same time. The needlecase is gorgeous too, they are so handy my friend made me a case for Christmas and I do not know how I lived without it! So nice not to have to search for your favourite needle! Popping over to look at your gifts you sent to Julia x
