This just in!





A parcel was waiting for Isabella in the mail today! (I just love the word parcel) It was a birthday present from her Great Aunt Gaye-Gaye! I absolutely adore what was inside...just look at the beautiful illustrations in the vintage story book! We are in love with these books, I cannot wait to read each story out of the classics collection, we're going to start on it tonight in fact! It was all wrapped up in this to-die-for fairy wrapping paper and the beautiful, homemade, pink and white card. I love the wrapping paper! Thank you so much Gaye-Gaye, you can always find the niftiest stuff!

As it turns out, it's been an exciting mail week for miss Bella... not only did she get a card from her great grandma Newman, but she also received a box from her Auntie Kelsey in Japan! it was a bath time bubble machine and we had so much fun breaking it in...in fact, Isabella learned to say the word bubble that night! it comes out more like "bubba" but we all know what she means :)

Isabella and I are currently getting ready to undergo a very messy project...we have many thank-you notes to write and I have the probably not-so-brilliant idea in my head that they should be home made and Isabella should have a "hand" in making them. We shall see how this goes...

Well, I'm off to put my face on and dry my hair before the princess wakes up. Hope everyone is having a great day!

She does find good stuff doesn't she? But then, again, she has a fantastic flea market just around the corner from her house. I spent a few $ there myself a few days ago...

Oh good!! My *parcel* arrived. I was beginning to get worried. So glad you girls are happy with it.

The fairy paper was purchased at Dollar Tree, btw.
