What a Lovely Surprise......




our postman delivered yesterday morning this lovely gift from our friends May Britt, Erik & Marius from Norway. It is just so pretty and the contents made us giggle. The photographs do not do it justice. The bags contain all different kinds of sweets and each bag has a little label attached with funny phrases. May Britt is just so talented and creates the most stunning cards & gifts. I am so lucky to have her as a friend.
