Quick Post

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and you celebrated in your own unique way. I had a lovely day with my family and it was filled with children's excited voices, paper being torn, festive food and loads of fun in the pool. The grandies love the pool and we have a group of little is a collection of little photos from the day.
We had a pair of crazy Darth Vadas running around along with two little Peppa pigs LOL! Loads of trick diving and jumping too! Boxing day was spent relaxing big time after the initial clean up of the abode.
My final FHFS gift which was under my tree was extraordinary..
My very generous swap partner Keryn tells me these were collected on a trip she had to Paris...yep that's Paris France...oh my! First was this lovely canvas bag with two of my favourite fabric type words on the front...
Inside the bag was something so very special and made my heart flutter... a beautiful piece of Antique French linen...
More excitement as it has the letter "M" embroidered on it!
Gorgeous! It appears to be a small coverlet or an slip for a very large continental cushion as it has sweet little buttons on the back piece.. this photo does not do it justice.
As someone who will probably never leave these shores and has always harboured little dreams about France, I am so thrilled with my beautiful very precious gift. Thank you Keryn. You truly have the kindest heart and have really made my spirit soar. I shall always treasure it. xxx
Ok off for another day of R&R...I love this photo of my boys having fun (please excuse the old drowned lady also present in the photo).

Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
