Cadeaus (gifts) from the North of France......

Remember when I blogged about Shirley giving me the Ritz Cartlton of Paris Tablecloth when I went to visit her in November? Well Yesterday I went to get the mail and there was a package .Inside a little note read "Dear tartlette,Just a few fripperies for you."And out came two napkins the size of small tablecloths 3 feet by 3 feet across.I was squealing with delight when I saw the other items waiting for me.................
three of the most adorable little bonbon boxes that were filled with candy to celebrate ones Baptism....
Then written on envelope outside it said to look inside the bonbon boxes. One would expect some chocolat or dragees, but this is Shirley we are talking about. Out fell three precious and delightful pins with acanthus leaves and wings on the inside. I have a wing thing so I was beside myself. Little scrummy bits as Shirl would say. You all cannot have any of mine but you can go to Shirls Simply Chateau sight and try to outbid the crazies to get some.This is one battle I wont't have to wage.Lucky me.Thanks Shirley. I love up to Jesus and back plus infinity xxxooo Gladys
