As I pulled the package out of the padded envelope, I found a beautiful box wrapped in white tissue paper. I just love Pre~Raphaelite paintings so to me this box is itself a real gift.
The back of the box is also very beautiful but when I lifted off the pretty ribbon saying 'imagine, wonder & dream'...
I found the box was personalized with the letter 'H' and filled so prettily that I almost did not want to take things out to look closer. But curiousity would get the better of me so look I did!
In the floral tissue paper I found a gift which was a vintage eyeglass case. And laying next to it was an adorable card...
It instructed me to 'Open & Read' almost like Alice in Wonderland. This is the cutest idea Mary and I have never seen it before. I will save this to hang on a sewing Christmas tree in my quilt studio.
Inside the eyeglass case was a pair of vintage eyeglasses. I collect them and love adding this pair to my little collection. These are so fun as they are a very strong perscription and have bifocals in them. Who were they made for I wonder? Eyeglasses are great fun to use when decorating.
I thank you my dear friend from the very bottom of my heart! I will treasure these and think of you often when I see them. I think of you often anyway Mary!
