I've Got Mail!

Last month, the talented Natalie at 'Tins and Treasures' hosted a giveaway to celebrate her birthday, and I was the lucky winner!

.

In a twist of coincidence, Natalie's box, complete with birthday confetti, arrived just in time for my birthday.

.
And what a treat this gift was to open...
filled to the brim with sweet treasures
all pink-wrapped and beribboned!
.
I love this spoon rest...it is
going into use immediately.

.

The floral theme
continued with a clipboard,
notebook, cards and tags, all
in the same girly pink...
so pretty!
.
I must admit, my
reader's heart quickened
when I came to this wonderful vintage book:
'The Teen-Ager's Menu Cookbook'.
It comes complete with Market Lists,
Timing and Utensils Needed. I could
have used this when I was learning to cook.
.
Hmmm...I could use it now. I wonder how
my boys would like Toad-In-The-Hole?
.
For indulgence and relaxation,
these chocolate masques promise
a way to escape for a while, and
come back refreshed...
.
As if that wasn't enough,
this charming little necklace and
exquisite lace ornament were
nestled into the midst of everything else!
.

Natalie... your generosity and
thoughtfulnes touched
my heart and made my birthday
extra special. Thank you! I'm delighted to
have you as a friend...
.

To see more of Natalie's lovelies, stop by her blog and have a good visit. I know she will make you feel right at home...

What lovely gifts...but the best gift of all was surely the love and friendship that came with it! Happy Birthday...a little late. I'm a July baby too!
