Fairy Mail

I came home from school tonight to find YOE Fairy mail. The package was from Val so I was excited and knew it would be a good package. I opened it to find everything wrapped up. What is it about a nicely wrapped package that makes it even more exciting to dig in to see what's inside?!

Val spoiled my daughter and I! She sent fabulous treats for both of us. Here's a picture of almost all of the goodies we received. I say almost because Val made a hair clip with a big orange flower and a clear jewel. When I unwrapped it I immediately put it in my hair and forgot about it. It's still in my hair now.

The ornaments are beautiful! Here are the two flower fairies Val sent. I think the little fairy is so delicate. I can't wait to get them hung up.

Now here's where you'll get jealous, if you weren't already. . . look at this sweet flower fairy house! I LOVE it!!!! Val crocheted these little flowers and leaves then put them all over the house. It's so beautiful and unique! I can't crochet for beans so this is something that I am in awe of and I appreciate. Val is a talented fiber artist. Combining the yarn media with a painted wood media was genius! I never would have thought of it.

Val also sent a children's book for us. It's called All the World. I love the illustrations, particularly this page. I love the landscape drawing. It says "All the world is you and me." I like the sentiment that together we make the world, so we can make it a better place. Thoughtfulness and kindness always make the world a better place. Val's package was filled with both. Thank you Val! I Love everything!
