Surprise Gifts From The Netherlands!!!

Last week one afternoon upon coming home a package greeted me at the front door...
I knew it was coming all the way from my dear blogging Friend...Simone
but I had no idea what it was...only that it was a surprise!!!
And it sure was!!!
This sweet little card...
saying she hoped the little presents survived the journey (all the way from The Netherlands)...
and that this card has been waiting to be sent to me for a long time...
Anything with nice food reminds me of you...
How very thoughtful is this!!!
Simone knows my love of food and how much I enjoy trying new tastes and recipes!!!
A little windmill card for JoJo...who is just entranced by them!!!

3 perfect teaspoons...one with a boat atop...the other with a cup of coffee/perhaps hot chocolate...and finally a windmill...No guesses here as to which spoon is for who!!!



A couple of gorgeous tea towels...
Simone also knows how I like things with 'Paris' on them...
One with the Eiffel Tower...the other
with the Arc de Triomphe!!!
And here they are all together!!!
Lieve Simone I was sooooo thrilled to receive this surprise package from you...
the teaspoon I use all the time and I am over the moon with the towels!!!
Bedank/Thank You so very very much for this wonderful gift which I will treasure and use with joy and I can't stop smiling!!!
