Thankful Thursday! (#7)

A gift from Lolo! This Cactus Rose came together
with this beach! Oh how I love them both!!!!! The beach is an ABC ATC, admire them all at ABC ATCs Around the World
When her envelops hit the doormat, it is a feast! The envelop is something to look forward to and to collect! Included were 2 gorgeous mandala cards. Here cards are available here Thanks Lolo dear! I am a big fan of your work!
Yesterday I got this big bunch of Jasmine flowers from a friend! Aren't they gorgeous. Pity you can't smell them.......
And here is a picture of my new lamp! It was my parents lamp, which they bought in Italy more than 30 years ago. I just love it! Moving my mother and getting rid of all their things was painful. I am happy and grateful that their lamp is hanging in my room now. (pictures taken with my phone) Hope you will have a day with a lot of things to be thankful for!
