Look what the UPS man just brought from my sister (who says she isn't talented)!!!

She calls it "A Touch of Pink" for the pink Saturday postings, but I'm not waiting.
She told me that she sent me a book of some sort, but I couldn't stop yelling long enough to open it. Plus it was wrapped is such pretty paper that I hated to tear it open. Look at the details in this!!! Oh my gosh!!! She needs to submit her stuff to Somerset, don't you think?? I'll take another picture of it full length so you can see it entirely. For now I have it on a side table where I can see it all the time and it looks nice there. I might end up hanging it on a wall. It's beautiful; the pictures don't do it justice.
Now here's what she said she sent me - I've picked up this book every time I've seen it but wouldn't let myself buy it. And she made the sweetest card. As hard as I try, I just can't make pretty cards like this. It even has a cool stamp on the back of it.

The book was meticulously wrapped in this pretty paper and tied with rafia. It even has a slight scent of lavender; I'm not sure if it's the paper or if it's the scarf but it smells so nice! I'm saving the paper; I can do something with it for sure.

I give nice gifts but am a sloppy wrapper; I was laughing the whole time I was looking at it; she was on the phone with me and must have thought I'd lost my mind.

This really has been the best birthday I've had in years!! Happy day!

What delightful gifts from your sister; and your earrings in your previous post are beautiful. I am catching up on blogs before I leave tomorrow for Arkansas. I'll catch up again next week after I return.

In the meantime, happy belated and enjoy all your treasures!


Hi Phyllis, Sisters can be so thoughtful and yours is creative to match!! Happy belated--I am new to your blog--so and I am a fairly new blogger myself!! I really liked some of your new fabrics too--it's fun to buy then decide what to make with it, isn't it??? Have a good week--Just, Di

That is truly beautiful. I can't even imagine being able to creat something like that!
