An Easter surprise on its way

Yesterday I've sent a little Easter package on a 200 miles trip to a dear friend.  Besides this tag

it contains embellished eggs, a birdie and some laces she might like to use in her artwork.

Since the dear friend is a little bit busy right now, she might not read this post. In case she does however, I wouldn't want to have revealed everything already, when the mailman brings my package. Therefore I don't show you the little surprises that are in the large egg and the paper envelope. Besides, I forgot to take pictures anyway, lol.

Yesterday I received this sweet little pillow that Rhonda over at
"A Little Bit French" has sent me as a giveaway prize. Thank you so much! Rhonda loves everything French and makes beautiful fabric books, pouches and a lot more. Please hop over to her blog or her Etsy shop to take a look at her wonderful creations!

The pillow was lovely packed in sheet music paper and came with that sweet Marie tag.

Hugs to you,

Hi Julia,
what a lucky friend you got.
It all looks beautiful and the french pillow is gorgeous.
Have a wonderful day.

Karen said...

Good morning Miss Julia.
You've been busy! How sweet, love it all. But you forgot to take pictures of the rest? OH UGH! You'll have to let us know her blog name after she receives your package so we can go check it out there!
I'm still working on the paper dolls. I must tip my hat to you for working with tiny items. I keep dropping them and twisting them and it's taking me soooooo long to get them all finished up! My fingers just feel so clumsy! LOL.
You hvae a wonderful day and we'll "talk" soon!
Big hugs from America! Karen

Such a pretty package! Wow!

June said...

Oh Julia your friend is going to be so delighted by her gifts. They are truly beautiful. What a sweet thing for you to do. I saw the tag first and thought what a lovely gift and then you showed the rest and I was wowed! You do amazing work!
I love your giveaway win from Rhonda, it's so sweet!
I love it when you come by and leave me a message to make my day!

Sue said...

Julia, your friend will love her gift! What beautiful contents for her to discover and so wonderfully packaged! Lucky friend!

Wishing you a beautiful day!

Oh wie schön, liebe Julia. Deine Freundin wird total aus dem Häuschen sein bei so wunderschönen Sachen. Das Vögelchen und die Eier, das tolle Tag. Und alles passt so wunderbar zusammen und ist so zauberhaft "vintagig". Bin total hin und weg.
Das Kissen ist auch einfach umwerfend.
Viele liebe Grüße aus dem endlich frühlingshaften Hannover.

You have a great feeling for winning prizes Julia, please tell us your secret! ;-) But not only that, you have a great creative talent too. Lucky lady who receives your gift, it is so charming!

Rostrose said...

Liebe Julia, die Empfängerin deines Osterpäckchens wird sich (wie man bei uns so hübsch drastisch sagt) die Haxen ausfreuen über dein Geschenk! Toll!!! Und das Kissen, das du (samt hübscher Verpackung) bekommen hast, sieht auch süß aus :o)
Was ich dich noch fragen wollte: Ist das Cecilfoto in deiner Seitenleiste eigentlich neu, oder hast du das schon länger drin und es ist mir erst aufgefallen, nachdem du mir von deinem süßen Streuner erzählt hast? Wie auch immer - knuddel ihn bitte wie üblich von mir, und Mäx & Nina schicken Katzenpfotenstüber :o)
Alles Liebe, traude
PS: Meiner Mutter hab ich deine Grüße samt Belmondo-Erinnerungen am Wochenende mitgeteilt, sie grüßt dich unbekannterweise ganz lieb zurück!

Lisa said...

How did I miss the last post?? I try to check on you at least every other day. Okay, that bundle of goodness is making me drool!! I want it all. Don't send too much, save some for our swap! I love the necklace from the previous post. That took less than an hour?? You need to come visit & teach me to bead. Love it my friend. Lisa

Ivy said...

Oh my, I adore the eggs you made...actually I adore all of your art!

Thank you so much for your kind comments on my Petit Doll painting. I haven't done any drawing or painting in a very long time and I'm very excited to be doing it again!

She is going to love it for sure! Love the silk ribbon you used least I think it is?
You always do such an amazing work.

Hi Julia!

And oh my gosh...I thought you sent those pretty Easter goodies to ME...then I read it was only traveling 200 miles instead of 2000 miles. (pout pout) haha
I was so lonesome for you while I was at Round Top!!! I walked in so tired but I did read your email and as soon as I get some SLEEP, I'll get back with you soon...I promise!
Just wanted to pop in and see what "prettiness" you posted while I was away!!!!!!! ;)

Jane said...

I remember reading this post and thought I had commented but it looks like I never sorry.
I love the decoupaged eggs you made. In fact, you inspired me to make something similar as part of an Easter swap I participated in. The tag and little bird are adorable too.
I love your style!
