Can you believe how fast the holidays are approaching? I can't!!! Maybe it is because it has been so hot here in Texas until just the last few days that it still feels like summer instead of fall. Or maybe it is because I've been up to my neck in wedding plans for my daughter! In any case the holidays are really just around the corner & I have some wonderful gift ideas from some of my special friends that I would love to tell you about.

Looky Looky At What Lori Sent!
My dear friend Lori from Pink Faded Roses sent me this surprise package in the mail ~ well not exactly a surprise as she had been "teasing" me for weeks about "something" that she was putting together for me! But I couldn't pull it out of her as to what it was going to be.
Gorgeously wrapped presents.....
I wish she could have seen how my hands were shaking as I carefully opened each individual present. I giggled, I cried, I squealed with delight!
Lori knows I have a passion for anything GONE WITH THE WIND, so she often posts little snippets of trivia or pics from the movie or from that time period for me in her wonderful blog.
Lori, Scarlett is sitting in a place of honor at the base of my staircase. I pass by her millions of times a day, & everytime I do, I SMILE & think of you!!
Now THIS is what made me cry. My daughter is getting married in just a few weeks & of course Lori & I talk lots of wedding talk, so she made this precious wedding cake box just for me. It says Daughter's Wedding Day, is glittered, has a beautiful heart charm, millinery flowers, pink satin cording, some beautiful button adornments that had belonged to Lori's dear mother & tiny gold rings, & sheet music, & lovely pink roses! Lori really poured her heart into making this special treat & luckily this one will last forever & never give me any extra calories!!
Inside is a beautiful white rose, more awesome wedding graphics, & more pretty pink roses. What else would you expect from the Pink Faded Roses girl?
This is just exquisite & I'm so proud of it. I will treasure it always. Maybe we should all twist Lori's arm into making some of these to sell on etsy or eBay. She would definitely get some customers as her work is impeccable!
Look at the frilly pleated lace base & the lace "Icing" swags and the sweet satin roses all over it!
Thanks so much Lori for such a sweet remembrance & for always being there for me. I feel so blessed to count you among my dearest of friends & always look forward to hearing from you & reading your amazing blog!
Love & Hugs,
