Barbara Lilian blessed me with the most wonderful gifts from France.
When I opened this lovely package the scent of sweet lavender drifted through the room. It's fragrance reminded me of summer and the joy of that season. (To those of us who have had way too much winter - it was a welcome reminder that summer will come again).
France. The other was a delightful winter scene. Both are lovely treasures. Also there was a packet of hollyhock seeds and a postcard from her visit to Talmont Atlantic Coast in France.
Knowing I love to cook she included an English edition of Cooking in Burgundy and Champagne. It is filled with the most delicious
recipes. Hubby will be sampling some new dishes in the next few weeks!
Last but not least was this gorgeous handmade heart sachet. It had been carefully wrapped and placed in a special gift bag.
Thank you dear friend Barbara. Your generosity overwhelms me.
You not only gave me gifts from France but you gave me the gift of yourself. That was the best part of all.
