Beautiful surprises in the mail......

from my blog friend Mea, her blog is called Mayflower...... you have to go visit her to see what I sent her. So we told each other we were exchanging cards and a little something, so I never imagined all these wonderful gifts!

All wrapped up soooo pretty!!!
Look, a friendship bag with delightful petite candles and a silver candle clip.....

Love the scented package, and the white star....also a black clip to hang photos.
In this darling stamped bag, a soft pillow......

with this beautiful printing on the back.
Mea also sent me two of her postcards with photos from her blog.....oh so pretty!!!

I just love her blog. It is always so serene and beautiful and her photos are so lovely.....her decor is one I strive for..... thank you my dear sweet blog friend!!!

What lovely gifts and packaging! I need to work on that when I mail things. I do pretty well in person but need to perfect my mail packages.
I will use these as a fine example to emulate.

Merry to merry to you!
