Unexpected Treasures

Lynne at the blog The Vintage Nest has been running a give-away during the month of May, and I was the lucky winner!

I've never won anything, really, except a set of Monkees records from a radio station call-in when I was 12 (and I already had all the Monkees albums by then!)

So I was thrilled when Lynne told me I was the winner, and then doubly thrilled when the Fed-Ex man delivered the box. It was fun to open and discover all the treasures.

Here are all the treasures - Sweet treats and delicious coffee!

Two vintage books, both by James M. Barrie, author of Peter Pan. This one is called "Sentimental Tommy." I love how the publishers put a page of tissue paper to protect the illustrations in those days.

Scented soaps and candles and a piece of real honeycomb - nature's geometry displayed.

Not to mention a real birds' nest.

What a treat! Thank you, Lynne! Aren't internet friends wonderful?
