Thankful Thursday

This bag I got from Marja filled to the brim with French Goodies! Once the goodies were out another goody inspected the bag........ After the picture I put the bag in a save place ;)
In Tiverton I found this rainbow maker! just 2 minutes after I placed my order to the cosmos! Can tell you how happy I am with this gadget. Spook inspected the spinning crystal and then posed for me......
French delicious gifts. Pink garlic, Laurier leaves from Marja's garden Olive oil books and a red wine ;)
Myrthe came for Lars but had some birthday gifts for me as well! A bag from Susan Bijl my favorite magazine wonderful showercream and a stick to do footreflexology with a map.
This gorgeous box I got from Lo. It was a welcome gift in my room. Filled with sweet gifts:) I love the box!
This beautiful book I got from KJ . A treasure to remember my trip to P-town. So much to be thankful for! That my trip went well to NY, RI and P-town. That Felix had a good time. We were lucky with the weather. We forgot clothes in our hotel and got them back. Felix forgot his shoes in a shop and they were still there waiting for him after 15 minutes. Emma and Bliss wanted to be friends with us. We met Stella and she was doing better after her operation. Felix got to see a baseball game and became fan for life of the Paw Sox! That Felix and Brian became such good buddies. I met KJ and JB. And I finally had that glass of wine together with Lolo! Now I am in Singapore and tonight I will fly home and spend some time home with the family. The kids still have one week before their school begins. Life is good! Hope you have a lot to be thankful for!
