I am trying to think if I had ordered something and forgotten. But, then I saw the side of the box.......
Well, since Mackenzie-Childs and I have a HUGH luv affair going on, my heart started to beat a little bit faster.....a few beads of sweat formed on my forehead. I KNEW I hadn't forgotten if I had ordered anything from Mackenzie-Childs!!!! ?????????????
Even the tissue paper is just beautiful.....this box was tied with this pretty, creme colored ribbon but I was in such an excited state by this time, I forgot to get a picture until I had already taken the ribbon off....There was a little M-C card tucked beneath the ribbon...This is a 70th birthday gift from my wonderful friend, NAN!
Nan......I am so surprised and full of heartfelt thanks for your thoughtfulness, I can't find words other than THANK YOU so much.
And, here was ANOTHER beautiful little bright red box with shiny gold print.....At this point, it is taking all I've got to keep from ripping the lid off..but I so wanted pictures of it all to show you.
Oh, my....it is the prettiest little, glass Christmas ornament, in the shape of a Mackenzie-Childs shopping bag you've ever seen. Just lovely. I do believe that the workmanship that went into this precious, miniature bag is even more than the larger pieces. And, there on the front for all the world to see...."MACKENZIE-CHILDS". :)
The front, with the Courtly Check that I love and look at the bright stripes on the sides of the bag. Soooo eye-catching. oooooo, I am so excited!
Oh, NAN, you knew I would love this.....and I do!!! This will look fabulous on my Christmas tree next year....yes, sir, ree. BUT....it will also stay out and not packed away, to use in my living room so that I can see it. It looks so cute, tucked in beside some of my other pieces. I will leave it out year 'round and smile every time I look at it. It does make my heart sing!!
Thank you again, my dear friend. For this lovely, little bag, for the blog Surprise Birthday Party but mostly for your warm heart and comforting friendship.
Ladies, be sure to go by Nan's at onmyporch.blogspot.com/ She has such a beautiful blog and you will love visiting her.
I AM BLESSED ~
