More about the treasures


Today I decide to post another blog on the goodies from Jo because I knew I was not satisfied with my last night post. Pictures were too small to tell what I had received from Jo. As I wrote yesterday, I can tell Jo is really talented with "handmade" and I can tell how much she enjoys it in her every day life. As I explained it yesterday her scraped book is really lovely. Besides her own hand made items, she picked up a book on water color paintings and magazines introducing the way of American women enjoy handmade in crafts, house-living, cooking and all sorts. How inspiring ! There were some other nice goodies like a box of chocolate, a fragrant candle, a box of bath flowers, a frame she added her art on, handmade tags and a collection of cute little, colorful buttons and a roll of tapes in a drawer of the paper Efel tower, writing pads and finally and unexpectedly cute summer pajamas in beige bordered with lace! This is really something to know how much she devoted her time out of her busy life to make this surprise for me. I'm so happy!

Well, well, for those who want to see the pictures much closer, click the picture above and you will see the slides show starts.
Hope you will be able to see the lovely treasures I received from Jo.
Thank you everyone that left each comment in my last night post.
And Dionne, thank you so much again for hosting this Summer Swap.

PS:Dionne, you know what? It's magic you made me Jo's partner. We exchanged so-called "Birthday Presents" each other. Both of our birthdays fall on June!!! What a magic, Dionne.

Dionne said...

Wow, that is so cool that it happened to be both your birthdays around the time of the swap! That's great to hear!

Dionne said...

Hehehhe, no worries on deleting that comment. But you should comment on that post anyway - what are your top 3 music artists? You should enter the contest! It's open to anyone from any country - all my giveaways are international

photojoy said...

Gee, it's very kind of you! I've got to come to yours right away!

Dionne said...

Unless I say otherwise on a giveaway post, you can safely assume that all my giveaways are open Internationally. I want everyone to have a shot at it!

Dear Mekkan,
First I want to thank you for your so kind words. yes if it was possible, it was nice if we where neighbors ;), than we could be creative, making arts, together. Thank you again, for these nice words. Than to your gift from Jo, I love the little book, and the tags, I’m now into making tags, so I was so trilled to see her patterns. I will try to make some too. It is so nice to read your blog, so far away, and yet, still nearby. I hope we can ‘visit ‘each other for a long time. I wish you a very nice week, see you soon, big hug from Jeany
