On August 31 we landed in Amsterdam at 5:25 AM after a 7½ hour flight from Atlanta. Ria from the lovely blog IT'S ME, did order something from Mariette's Back to Basics Boutique, she was very happy to get her goods hand delivered. So off we went after picking up our luggage from the carousel and installing our Magellan GPS with the Europe map in our BB&L rental car. That is always a luxury to have a car waiting for you at the curb, just across from the departure hall. We only need to get up the escalators to exit from the higher level. We drove along the romantic Vecht river and passed Nyenrode Business University on our way to Maarssen where Ria and Rein have their Bonhof Bloemen store. Her mother-in-law made us some coffee while Ria got on her way to the store. She arrived with a tote full of lovely gifts for us. Only now I unpacked them, as I intended to show them on my blog. Found some fragrant gardenias from our garden, to put in a French Baccarat vase. Next I put it all in the sunshine on the balcony after we had our afternoon tea...
All spread out on the teak table of our balcony...
Some cards from Bonhof bloemen as well as a Jeanne d'Arc Living Luxe Lifestyle magazine.
Voor Jou! - For You!
Love the way her gifts are wrapped with their own signature Bon Nature band around it.
You ought to visit their web site. Just click on the highlighted words above.
LOVE the twine with the snippets of ribbon; it adds such a special touch!
Ria had used it also on the tote that held the gifts.
Very pure and natural looking...
That will be a treat with our morning coffee when the mail arrives. We always sit together and sip a cup. Ria is selling all those special gifts along with fresh flowers and plants!
Once I've caught up again, this will make a good read...
Sweet note with heart...
Thanks a lot Ria and Rein!
Cute bird house came out of the yellow parcel!
Romantic card with key charm on a ribbon, that she's selling also.
Touched by Love
Again a romantic card with a charm on a ribbon.
Friends are flowers that never fade...
Thanks again Ria and Rein and I am glad that we went the extra mile for you!
Despite of the heat and drought we got some fragrant Gardenias in a French Baccarat vase!
We lost a lot of trees, shrubs and plants but I'm grateful for these lovely flowers!
May the rain soon come to the south of the USA and relieve the wild fires in Texas.
