When the Post Box Brings You Sunshine

The door bell rang on this dark morning and a familiar red jacket could be seen through the frosted glass.  A recognisable smile greeted me as I was handed a large, padded brown envelope with the sweetest scent escaping from it.  This was my morning sunshine received from the lovely Karen at Beatrice Euphemie's giveaway!
Hearts, roses and lavender are three of my favourite things and they are dotted around my home, so these gorgeous additions will settle in very nicely.
This gorgeous little packet made by Karen contains some  sleeping seeds of sweet William, soon to be brought to life in my cut flower patch - if I can bring myself to open this perfect little bundle!
The dainty little brooch held the contents of the hand made items in an envelope made from a darling handkerchief.  Real handkerchiefs always remind me of my late Welsh grandpa who used to have one nearby, such happy memories.
Then a lovely hand made card with a sweetly dried flower with an equally sweet message inside.
Blogging gives us wonderful virtual interactions with like minded people but the rattle of a letter box and the smile of the postman that will deliver such a personal package (other than bills) is a lovely start to the day.
Please go and visit Karen and her lovely blog here. Her surroundings and sunshiny view of life always takes my breath away along with her beautiful writing.

Thanks again Karen for sending me such a gorgeous piece of your world.  You have now filled my home with the most amazing scent from your potpourri and prettiness.  This has been perfect while resting my feet after yesterday's London onslaught and putting words to pictures!

Is the post box giving you some sunshine?

Have a wonderful week.
