Royal Mail!

All the way from England!

Oh my goodness! How exciting!
My dear sister-in-law sent me a package from England!
I love you, Martha!

And, just look what was inside!

I am just thrilled to have this Cath Kidston key ring - and look, it matches my big blue house! 
My brother in law Bruce said that I should name my blog, "Strawberry Blue" - and look - that is exactly what this key chain looks like!

And, every girl needs a lip gloss, especially one that will make her feel pretty just opening the lid!
Little roses - love it!

Oh, Dear Cath Kidston. 
I love you, too!


Bruce and Martha came to visit us from England several weeks ago. They had a conference in Long Beach, CA - and we were just thrilled to have them stay with us for several days.  They are a very fun couple - full of BIG dreams and GOOD words. They are easy to have around. As long as there is sunshine - I think they are happy! And, they cook! The perfect company, if you ask me!

I told Martha that if we ever do go over to England for a visit - I will save up lots of money for the Cath Kidston store! (And, Greengate, too!) She was so sweet to send me these special signature items.  

Ok, where are my house keys! 
"Honey, will you help me put my keys on this adorable key ring!"

Loooooove it!
Thank you so much, Dear Martha!

  13. Good Morning Patti, I have to tell you, that your excitement was jumping from the page, as you were telling us about your gift.
    When I reached the first photograph, I thought I recognise that postage stamp.... it's the Royal Mail.
    What a treat to receive such a lovely gift from your sister in law. We have a huge Cath Kidson shop here in Newcastle and it is always busy.
    I hope you managed to get your keys on your key ring as I have to do what you do..... call my husband.
    Patti, I have found you at Claudia's A Favourite Thing and I have enjoyed my visit so I have become a new follower.
    I would like to invite you to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! when you have the time, as it will be lovely to see you there.
    Best Wishes to you,

  14. Patti, those gifts are lovely! Isn't it fun to get something beautiful in the mail?

    If this is intrusive, let me know, but you can easily expand the width of your posting area so that the photos don't poke out into your border. If you want help, let me know.

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!



Thank you so much for visiting! May your day be blessed!
Hugs, Patti
