I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!. I had a really nice one. Earlier in the week, I got a surprise gift from a very sweet sister in law, not for Mother's Day, but a "just because" gift. It is the beautiful purse you see above. It is a tote made by Isabella's Journey, a beautiful tapestry with beads on the handle. It has a zipper and also some useful pockets inside. I was delightfully surprised. Thanks for the lovely gift!
Earlier in the week, I also received a package from my daughter who lives in Northern Ireland. I, of course, couldn't wait to open it until Mother's Day, so I didn't hesitate to tear off the paper on the little wrapped gifts inside the mailer and found an assortment of wonderful things!
First, there was a little book, which I will use as a sketch book and it has a handpainted flower design on the front of it, done by an artist in Kent, Egnland. Very, very cute....a clever idea. In another box was a pretty flowered writing pen that matches it so well.
NOTE:I don't know what all this space is between my photos, but since Google changed Blogger it is very hard for me to properly blog, and I am pretty disgusted with it. So bear with me.

Also in the package was a really beautiful necklace with two strands of chain and beads and a darling little dangling tea pot! I love it and wore it yesterday to church and to our Mother's Day breakfast/tea at church. It received rave reviews!
And a very pretty cactus dish garden in a pottery pot. It came with a little squeeze dropper to use to water it. How handy that will be and hopefully will keep me from over-watering it.
Well, I got a phone call from Kelli, my daughter, and then Greg, my son and the two grandsons came for a visit and we went to our new "Applebees" for lunch. I had a wonderful day and thank all those sweet ones who made it so. I am still smiling!
