A Gift

When I came home from my vacation in France, I found a surprise email from a blog friend.  Ginger from Enchanting Cottage had emailed me and said, "I have a small something I would love to send you, a little something for your home. Would you mind if I had your address, then I will get it in the mail to you. It's not much but I thought of you when I saw it. It has your name all over it."

Well, of course I would love a special package, just for me!  So I sent Ginger my address and very shortly a package arrived at my door.

It was this wonderfully scented candle, in the best muted colors with a black wax seal hanging from a black cord. 

And remember when Ginger said, "it has your name all over it"?

Look at the lid!!! The Comforts of Home!!!  And not only that...the curved lettering says, Cobbler on the porch...and then in FRENCH it says Cobbler sur la verande (which when translated means on the porch).

Thank you definately is perfect for my home.  You are so sweet to think of me and I will think of you each time I light this beautiful candle!

p.s. a lot of you have requested more pictures of France so every so often in a post, I will add a picture or two...xo

Hi Penny! Oh, aren't bloggers just the most wonderful ones! I just love candles and this one seems so special - especially with your name all over it!
Glad you had such a wonderful Paris trip. I love Paris and have been a few times but never was able to stay the amount of time you did.
I know you're glad to be home though.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
