A Beautiful Gift.

I was so lucky to win Marilyns beautiful giveaway. It was a real surprise to win and I felt truly honoured to receive my gift.
We had a few hiccups as Marilyns computer got sick and I moved house so change of address then the vagaries of the US and UK postal systems.

My parcel arrived yesterday and I couldn't wait to unpack it. Look at the pretty wrapping and  inside a delight, I wish you could smell this gorgeous lavender bag. It's scented the whole parcel.
Next was this fabulous prayer shawl, just the thing for these chilly autumn evenings, I've got it on my sofa ready to snuggle up in later.
At the bottom of the box more lovely things a handmade card  and a stunning rosary.   
I can't tell you how lucky I am   to receive such a beautiful gift. Thank you so much Marilyn.
