{GIFT from Blogger Friend Hayu - White & Roses}


On December 21, 2013 I had to sign for a registered parcel from Rome, Italy. Blogger Friend Hayu from White & Roses did send me her Giveaway Gift that I'd won. You can see the announcement here: Welcome for Baby C where she mentions me for guessing it right that she would get a Baby Boy.
Poor Hayu, who by the way is from Bali, Indonesia, had severe sciatica problems around the delivery date. Hope she is doing fine now! She also has to abstain from blogging for a while. You still can visit her and leave her a note of course! 
Look what she created with her 'GOLDEN' hands...
Lovely ribbon roses on a door knob pillow that hangs down from a linen twine.
This registered parcel needed 12 days for traveling from Rome across the Atlantic Ocean to Georgia... But Hayu and I were both happy that it did arrive in perfect condition!
Out came the GIFT that I won from her post on August 31, 2013: Love from Brazil and Give Away for You just scroll down to see the door knob pillows she offered to select from.
Look at her beautifully hand created gift card and tag... Hayu is quite an artist!
The door knob pillow with the ribbon roses and its hang tag.
My Unic Own Tag shows us that she does hand paint them in water color...
This Balinese girl is incredibly talented!
Closeup of her unique water color tag with roses...
With a lovely note card with roses and pink ribbon.
I used our French Rose Matelassé coverlet from +Yves Delorme as back ground...
Hayu's hand writing is even 'ART'...
THANK YOU Ayu! - written in her third language
GRAZIE MILLE - written in her adopted language
BANYAK TERIMA KASIH - written in her native language
MAISON
A word that means a lot, especially to 1st immigrants like Hayu and myself.
Home is where the Heart is!

+Hayu Maselli's signature label sewn onto the back of this lovely door knob pillow...
Here it proudly hangs from the bedroom door of our Rose Suite...
Don't you think this is a lovely dream of a pillow with artful ribbon rose embroidery?

      Ja wat dacht je hóe blij ik hiermee was! Ayu is een schat van een meid, met drie kleintjes en dan zoiets tussendoor nog maken. Via de link onder mijn post kun je een heleboel van haar werkstukken zien. De een nog mooier dan de ander.
      Dank je wel voor je kommentaar; altijd erg goed en inhoudelijk.

      Thank you and it is perfect for our Rose Suite where it happily hangs on its linen twine loop.
      Ayu is very talented and I always admired women that can create such lovely things for the home. We certainly hope that the entire family will make it fine through winter. For her condition, the seasonal weather plays a big role.

      Thank you for your meaningful comment and kind words towards Ayu. Sure, this was an incredible gift to receive in the mail. Ayu is talented in many ways, as evident by her indeed stylish handwriting, water color painting and the lovely ribbon embroidered roses she created for me. These I will treasure forever!
      Let's hope she is doing fine meanwhile and gotten into the daily routine of caring for her three little ones and husband.
      Happy weekend to you as well.

  16. Dearest Mariette;
    Congratulations on your winning of a wonderful door knob pillow which has gorgeous roses on it♡♡♡ How great to see it proudly hung from the bedroom door of your Rose Suite, my friend. She sure is a great artist, isn't she♪ Just hoping her condition of sciatica is better now.

    ps> You have had several jobs and no wonder with your vast knowledge(^_^)v And great to know you became one you wished to be when young. My late mother wished to be a teacher as she loved to read books when little (not realized). Well, I was happy to know that she felt a bit proud of me teaching English. (even though at home not school)
    Take Care and have a wonderful coming weekend!

    Sending you lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

    1. Dearest Miyako,
      Thank you for your nice comment and let's hope that this great artist by now is doing fine health wise. It is not easy to juggle several jobs at once but little ones grow up rather fast.
      About your post, I did enjoy your previous job, very impressive and as it comes to teaching English, either home schooling or in connection with a school; both require the very same knowledge and you certainly do manage the English language. Lucky youngsters that had the chance to study with you!
      Happy weekend to you both and stay fit.
      Hugs,
      Mariette
