~Birthday Treasures From Priscilla~

Look what I got in the mail this week, a birthday treasure box from my dear friend Priscilla, who lives in England. When I opened the box, it was filled with the prettiest lemon tissue and several small packages wrapped in tissue....
Isn't that the cutest cupcake tag, and look........
at this darling birthday card she made, even the envelope is decorated.
Priscilla knows I love tea and all my treasures had a tea theme...I think that is so cool. The first package I opened was the chocolates...yes, I had to have one right then and there, Mmmmm delish, then there was yummy shortbread cookies, a beautiful tea mug, a recipe book filled with the most delicious treats and a package of Summer fruit tea. I have to tell you this is one of the nicest teas I've ever had. It's a blend of several fruits, hibiscus and rosehip, slightly sweet, I can really taste the cherries....just wonderful . When it's steeped it is the prettiest shade of pink. Wait, there's more.......look at this......
darling stitch. Little House Needleworks is one of my favorite designers and isn't the " Chocolate Shoppe" just perfect. I love it and the floss colors are just gorgeous...this is going to be a fun stitch and I can hardly wait to start it. Priscilla, from the bottom of my heart I thank you...who knew from a little bag of candy corn I would meet such a lovely person...I am happy to call you my friend. Hugs to you and your family...with the warmest regards, Linda
