Goodies in the mail

Today I went to the postoffice and got the package from Spaine. It was fun to read the adress on it. I live in Elverum and they had addressed it El Verun :) I imagine living at such a place as El Verun must be very sunny and warm. And when I came home from visiting my mom another package was in my mailbox.
So I rushed inside to see what was in the packages.

The first I opened was from my dear friend Nancy. She have been in Birmingham, but had bought me a thimble from Holland because their flight was by Amsterdam. And I also got some beutiful fabrics as a prize from her 100th post blogiversary.
And look at this card she sent me. I LOVE IT. "Life is nothing without friendship" it says. I guess Nancy have thought about me and her looking like this in some years.

And then there was time to open the package from Spaine. Four small wrapped gifts was inside the envelope.
And look at this cute keychain made from tiny hexagons made by Teresa L Sako. And the cute passportholder made of Ana Serrano. Perhaps it's a sign I ought to go there :) I wish I could. In the package it was also a lot of wonderful ribbons, laces and beads.
I love all the things mention above, but when I opened the package with these two wonderful pictures the tears came. I LOVE THEM. These are made by Ana Maria. She have sewed a tiny house and a tiny tree, these are then framed by paper I guess she have made by herself. And in the paper it is added dry flowers and straw. They are both so beautiful. I will buy some frames on monday, and I know exactly where to hang them.

Thank you girls for giving me these wonderful gifts because of my two years blogiversary in august. I feel so honored. And your place is now on my "want-to-go-some-day list". Big hug from me to you all.

Saying for today:
A friend is what the heart needs all the time
