Today was like Christmas in March... Several parcels arrived and from sweet Celestina Marie Design (← click it) I got the most precious one. By the way, Christmas in March is not far from reality, as this artist lady has twice designed Christmas ornaments for the Blue Room Christmas tree in the White House! For 1998 (President Bush) and 2004 (President Clinton). You can read about that in her blog: Miss C ~ Goes to Washington (← click it).
Celestina Marie gave me this heart as a GIFT! Her heart... and look how pretty it is. The River Rock that I purchased from her Etsy shop Celestina Marie Design, makes a perfect paper weight too and both are done in her signature romantic cottage style. Let me show you how she does wrap her items for shipment to her customers... This was inside the parcel and another gift that I will show later as it is a surprise for a dear friend. Oh, one more thing about Celestina Marie. She wrote such a lovely post about her Daddy who was a WWII veteran and died October 21, 1998 ~ missing his daughter's visit to the White House but for sure from heaven he did watch her and her husband going there. You can view her post about her Daddy: Remembering Veteran's Day (← click it) and scroll all he way down, past the great story she first does about another fine artist lady that gives back to our Veterans. My husband and I are very respectful towards ALL our veterans!
A rose card was glued on top of the parcel with the rock and the heart was wrapped up likewise with a tulle fabric bow. She even added a silk rose that was stuffed with lavender buds... Her style of presenting things deserves to be put on a 925/000 silver tray for presentation!
Do you see the lavender buds inside the rose?
THANK YOU +Celestina Marie!
