Alice in Wonderland

“I wonder if I've been changed in the night... Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is “Who in the world am I?” Ah, that's the great puzzle!” (Alice in Wonderland)

That’s how I feel whenever I’m out here—in the garden. I always feel a little different, a littler happier, a little behind the times; a little cornier or sappier if you will. This craziness must have also something to do with the enchantment of the magical package I just receive.... take a look at what's inside and tell me if you are not enchanted by it too!...

Ah yes, I’m so excited! I'm fluttering like Tinkerbell... I'm Tinkerbell herself! I am as tiny as she is and I can fly with the butterflies and wear yellow wings, and flutter around the garden as if on top of a magical wave... just like the yellow American Goldfinch in my garden do... you see, I was the lucky soul to win dear Kathy’s delightful “Victoria Inspired Giveaway", and now I am the owner of this treasure... oh, I can hardly wait... would you help me unwrap!

A pretty teacup and saucer—precious little gem for drinking my espresso or a small spot of tea, a lovely lace hankie sweetly scented... what’s the name of that lovely fragrant I wonder... is just so me! Delightful back issues of Victoria magazine; filled to the brim with enchanting photographs and charming vignettes... I have already started reading “My First Best Friend" and I cannot tell you how I had cried reading page after page of sweet touching stories about friendship and childhood; precious memories that will forever live in our hearts... “creme pour les mains” or “crema para mano” or almond and aloe hand cream with silk; all the same and all in all the same wonderful sweet fragrances, and oh, she also included my favorite romantic rose stationery! I cannot believe it! Ah yes, how beautiful a day can be when kindness (and luck) touches it!

I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.- William Shakespeare

Please be sure to visit Kathy and tell her I sent you! You’ll be surprised if she doesn’t have already another generous giveaway steaming in her magical pot...

  3. Such a beautiful post..
    The giveaway gift you received from Kathy, is so very lovely, equally lovely is your words in thanking her.
    It's always a pleasure visiting your dreamy blog..

  4. I have found no one else who could put to word such lovely thoughts. I was quite moved and enchanted. If you write a book and illustrate it with your lovely and imaginative images - I would be one of the first to buy it.
    That fragrance, which I love so much and spray pillows, hankies, curtains and everything is Spring Flower by Creed - created for and inspired by Audrey Hepburn.
    I very glad you've enjoyed these things -and yes, you've guessed it - I have another lovely giveaway budding in my mind.
    Will let you all know very soon,
    Very Delighted,

  5. Oh so beautiful, how well you describe everything. Audrey Hepburn has always been my heroine so the perfume must be gorgeous! Thank you for your lovely blog

  13. What wonderful gifts you received. I gave My First Best Friend to a dear friend who just turned 50 (she's my longest friend, as we've been friends since 1972!!). Anyhow, before I wrapped the book for her, I read several of the stories, and I found myself weeping alot. That really is a beautiful book.

    Blessings to you,
