As Promised ~ Unwrapped!

A little later than I had planned, but...

Here are the thoughtful gifts
wrapped so beautifully...
from Alice W.
Every one a gift within a gift!

A beautiful hand made
"Believe" ornament

The most beautiful fleur de lis napkin rings.

Alice gave me a complete set
which I cannot wait to use...

Maybe with the weather in the 70s here
we can have a picnic outdoors?

Wonderful poetry, so good for the soul
along with a beautiful candle to burn.
I'm day dreaming along the way...

Ooh, Paris Remembered
The loveliest old photos calendar
the most
romantic city in the World

I'm rearranging my office and it will have
a very special place ;)

A darling hand-made ornament such detail
(I secretly wanted her so bad!)

Thank you Alice for sending her to me!

Her sister, Noelle resides at Romantic Thoughts
We've named our pretty birdy Nicoise

(since Zeke and I both love nicoise olives ;)

Isn't she so cute with her curly feathers?
And look at all that handmade detail,
I think she looks really happy here
at My Petite Maison
Zeke has also met a kindred spirit
Sweet Renoir...

As soon as Zeke heard his name and saw
just how charming Renoir is he just knew
they would be fast friends forever
Loving the good life and all
Renoir picked out just the perfect gift
Soft, very plush Tigger (fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!)

Merci, Renoir!

Also, you can find more of Alice's artistry and romantic
way of life in the latest
Somerset Life,
she has not one...

but two articles published
in this great magazine.

Thank you for stopping by,
I've got a lot of visiting to catch up on myself
with all of you this week!

Talk to you soon...

Au Revoir for Now

January seems to be the month of reorganizing and organizing. I am reading about it in all the magazines and I'm doing it myself!

Alice W. said...

Aww Tracie! You are so sweet! Everything looks gorgeous in your home as I knew it would! And I adored finding out Noelle's sister's name is Nicoise! She looks beautiful there with you...and Zeke looks like he is becoming fast friends with Tigger! Renoir sends love and high fives!

And thanks for the magazine plug!!! ;)

Hi Tracie... Your friend certainly did a fine job of spoiling you with such lovely gifts... It was a joy to see them all... Can Zeke possibly be any sweeter-looking than he is with his lil Tigger?! Just ♥ Precious! Wish I were there to enjoy your awesome weather, and curl up for a nice long chat... God bless...

~hugs 'n prayers~

Oh Tracie I am so glad you put a picture of the Believe ornament on your blog! I received those too and I posted about them ( I think it is set to post tomorrow not sure or maybe I already have posted it, lol ) but I took a picture of how pretty the package was and FORGOT to take one of the ornaments!!! I was so in awe of the package alone! And your pup is such a sweetie!!! I want to reach in and give big hugs!!!

Have a great day~
