Patty's box was chock full of frothy, tissue paper wrapped bundles, each carefully tied up with velvet, hand dyed silk or lace. What I have pictured is just the tip top of the iceberg which is Patty's generosity. The bee's wax ornament smells beyond heavenly-- I could almost eat it! Her matchbox, with tucked in bird's nest, is exquisite! The marching bees are a dish towel. Like I can use it! It's too nice! She also sent Virginia peanuts, a precious bundle of laces, glycerine soap tenderly wrapped with a ribbon topped with the most precious button, and lots of yellowed papers and ephemera.
Linda sent a banner.
"YOU ARE LOVED NATHALIE"
I couldn't be more moved than if she had hired a plane to fly that message over my house.
I really needed it, the day her envelope arrived.
I was not feeling very loved.
To give you an idea of scale, those are ATCs I have displayed below her bit of hand made love.
I feel so privileged to have a piece of her flying cutlery collection!
