Look what I received today

I did a Mailart exchange with Lena-Lou our theme was summer, and today in the post I have received the most beautiful envelope. For all we both posted on the same day and at the same time (we pre-arrnaged to do this), mine to her hasn't arrived yet, hopefully it will arrive tomorrow.
I absolutely adore it. A BIG HUG sent to you for this.



This is the back


what's more when you open the envelope there is even a wee verse that Lena-Lou made up herself. Its so beautifully lined and stitched.

Oh wow! That is so beautiful. What a great sister exchange :) I wish my sisters stitched! But my little sister is called Hélène like yours - and aren't they the best :)

Beautiful mailart Susi.

I noticed you like the Patina iris - so do I. Can you believe that the lady I bought it from told me she felt it was the "ugly duckling" in her garden, and that only her husband liked this one! It is getting rave reviews from my neighbors! Silly woman- LOL!

I just noticed that your favorite drink is ginger beer and vodka! I LOVE ginger beer, never added any alcohol to it, but I will soon!

I've never known anyone else to like ginger beer but me and my dad!
