treasures in the mail

February 8, 2012

a lovely surprise in the post


all the way from Barcelona

thank you Neki

two old pieces of crocheted lace, the collar piece has the remnants of the linen it was stitched onto, possibly a nightgown?





with a pattern of roses




and a beautiful finished piece with a shell border

my Mom loved to crochet, I thought of her immediately




and then these beautiful buttons. Glass blowers have told me that when blue glass glows with gas-y colours the colouring agent is cobalt. Can you see it?

the note says ” I’m sure you’ll find a use for these”.  Yes, Neki I’m sure I will but for now I’m just going to enjoy them.



gifts of another kind



a full moon and plum blossoms

    The lace is beautiful, it is so much ‘Neki’ to give what she thinks we will love.
    I am holding my breath too…

    What lovely gifts for you to treasure. I read somewhere (can’t remember where) that, Neki is visiting Fujino this year? Happy full moon Jean – hugs Nat

      Nat – I’m holding my breath and waiting to hear. If Bryan is short of space I’ll sleep on the floor, she can room with us.

    Beautiful buttons. Is that a rainbow behind the bird house?
