My Give-Away-Prize Has Arrived from France!

OMG!! I was as excited as a kid on Christmas Day, as excited as a girl getting married, or as excited as someone winning the lottery! Yes, it is true. When I saw that package waiting for me on my dining room table, I jumped up and down with glee and clapped my hands. I even think a little squeal of delight popped out......LOL This was my first ever package from France! (Floss at Troc, Broc and Recup' had a lovely give-away, and I won!) I took it very slow and enjoyed every minute of the process, the beautiful and unfamiliar labels on the box, the cool way everything was packaged in MAPS! One package was wrapped with a button on a string which I will save and use as a bookmark in one of the two marvelous books. And oh the card, so beautiful, so very French, so very nice a sentiment inside. (yes, Floss I do indeed love my gifts!) Here are some photos of my new found treasures! Thank you very very much Floss for this wonderful prize. I can't wait to start paging thru these lovely books and of course, my next cup of tea will be in my new rose cup. :)

Hi Kit... congratulations on winning all of those wonderful treasures! I love Cath Kidson's things, and your teacup looks just beautiful! It certainly was wrapped so pretty in the maps!... xoxo Julie Marie

Oh, I'm so glad to see that it's arrived (in one piece - I wondered about the mug...) and is looking so good chez vous! The beautiful French-style card was in fact made by one of your fellow Americans - I won a set of her wonderful cards and tags and have been using them very sparingly ever since - I don't want to give them to people who wouldn't appreciate them! I knew you would like it though, and it fits in so well with the rosey French/English theme. Thanks very much for this happy post!
