May I trade the months of July and August for an additional May and September each, please? I could easily do without these hot and humid summer months, served with lots of mosquitoes as side dish. With each degree exceeding 77 °F/25 °C, my list of enjoyable activities gets shorter and shorter. At 97 °F/ 36 °C outdoors and only little less indoors, there are very few things left, I like to do. Besides taking a shower, eating ice cream and watching our cats, there is only one more fun thing to do. Opening mail from sweet friends that is :).
A package from my dear Marie from Lost Bird Studio is a treat at any temperature.
Marie made this gorgeous bracelet for my birthday. I love everything about it.
She had become a pro at making s-hook clasps. She gave me three fabulous sets along with some lovely bought ones to create jewelry with and a pretty metal number tag.
She was so sweet to fulfill some wishes I had and bought seeds for me that are difficult to find here (lavender, endive, cilantro, thyme and cornflower), a pair of black espadrilles and some packages of gelatin powder.
Marie enjoys gift wrapping and her packages always look so beautiful. Thank you so much, my friend! I love your gifts!
A fabulous flower card came from my dear Dorthe over at Den Lille Lade.
I love the colors and the great textures. The leaves on the flower are real dried ones. Thank you very much, dear Dorthe!
If you guess that I am off now to take a shower and then have some ice cream while watching the kitties, you are absolutely right :).
Have a great weekend! I will be back soon with a necklace that was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers.
