A thing of beauty

I couldn't stop gasping when I beheld this treasure.
Feast your eyes:











 
What detail!  What talent!  What beauty!
It's everything-I-love, a gift from Tami for my birthday.
The gift came in a beautifully decorated hat box, and included vintage linens,
scrapbooking embellishments, notecards, and a crocheted and embellished pin keep.
The box it was mailed in was decorated with vintage wallpaper!
To be "understood" by a friend is, I think, among the greatest gifts of all!
I am so lucky!
