I love you guys..seriously..


really..I do.

Just tonight, I got home from a particularly l.o.o.o.n.g. day and was surprised to find a rather large box that the lovely and talented Mailman had delivered..

{I actually don't know our mailman, but the Universe of Colleen, all mailmen are talented and lovely..Kinda like the "Stepford Post Office"}


So, I had received earlier in the week an email asking for my address from Laurie of  http://buttonsnlace.blogspot.com/  ({who just happens to be having a wOndERfuL give away RIGHT NOW!} sent me a package..

But oh no..not just an ordinary package..this package made me squeal with delight and surprise, then reading her words on the card, brought tears to my eyes {and I think even Mr. B had some moisture in his eyes}

So you wanna see what brought such delight?

OK..


..handmade...by Laurie..for me...

Yes.. That is Ella Ireland !

Barring even Ella for a moment, is that not the prettiest, most amazing piece of artwork you've seen??

I mean, the ribbon embroidery, the pearl trims, the colors and the laces..

Amazing..truly..

And to say "thank you" just doesn't seem big enough..

But those words are from my heart..in the hugest way ..humongous..ginormous..
Big..big..

Laurie, you are amazing and I am so very fortunate ..

to you all, for you all..

many tanks..

You are most welcome Colleen, I meant every word. Working on this was an honor, and prayers for you are in every stitch. I loved this picture of Ella the moment I saw it, and knew it had to be the centerpiece of your pillow. She's gorgeous! Enjoy.

That is a most gorgeous pillow. I would have been shocked ! All that and a picture in the middle. Good for you, or as they say in England, "Good on you".

Tanks for showing them to us.
