A few weeks ago I entered Jan's giveaway and what a happy day it was for me, I won! If you have never visited Jan's blog :http://janellabella.blogspot.com/2011/01 /i-recommend.html do yourself a favor and stop by and say hi. Her blog is full of her adventures in and around her mountain home in Colorado and being an amazingly talented photographer and artist she shares it all with us!
I knew when her parcel arrived it was going to be special but I was overwhelmed when I opened the package she had sent!
The most beautiful ribbons and a precious watercolor that I had admired when she shared it on her blog!
A layer of pink tissue paper later and I uncovered this! A beautiful Villeroy & Boch teacup and saucer! The pattern is called "Persia"! And inside the cup were dozens of paper flowers that you can see I spread around for the photos...(did you spot the tiny bottle of pink glitter?)
Oh we are not done yet!
A gorgeous package of lovely papers and cards all tied together with more pink ribbon! A sweet little card on weathervanes with a bookmark styled after a vintage weathervane and beautiful notebook I am going to enjoy using!
This is so precious, one of Jan's handmade beauties that is going to be hanging on my kitchen wall when I finish painting it! Notice the little mother-of-pearl disks by the ribbon hanger!
And all bundled up like a little angel was this amazing little treasure! She has such a sassy look in her eye you just have to love her and I am going to keep her close to my computer where I can feel her energy while I work!
Jan how can I ever thank you for so much bounty! You are not only a wonderful photographer and artist but a lovely and generous soul that I am so happy to know.
Thank you so much for making my January feel like December 25th all over again!
