Coast/Seaside No 7
This beautiful package arrived from Cathy earlier in the week - have to admit I couldn't resist the temptation to see what was inside and not wait till this morning when I am dashing off out for the day in just a minute anyway and wanted to open it when I would have time to enjoy and appreciate its contents properly.
Inside the lovely blue tissue tied with a paper bow was this stunning card - isn't it beautiful?
Made from vintage linen the colour reminiscent of the beach and using some beautiful antique lace and a real starfish which Cathy tells me came from Brittany along with seaquins which conjure up sunslight on waves it is embroidered with blue thread and....
... attached was a fabulous little message in a bottle! I hardly dared to open the bottle but I am glad I did as it contained one of Cathy's hallmark links to a lovely little video about a doll and a fish.
It's is - as you might expect from Cathy - a beautiful interpretation of my theme - Thank you Cathy!
