Look what came in the mail!
It arrived from The French Larkspur, 4 days ago.
I was so excited,
Dare I open it?
No, I couldn't, I had to wait,
because look how pretty it's wrapped!
When I opened the envelope, little paper confetti birds came fluttering out.
Delicately and lightly spreading there wings as they glided to the floor.
As I held my precious package,
all else in the world came to a stand still until each and every
feathered friend was accounted for.
But the anticipation was overwhelming!
Slowly I slip off the pretty ribbon and tag, that held
an old page.
I'll never know what book it came from,
unless I learn the French language. It's beautiful!
I tear the tissue and get a peek....I'm actually giddy!
My publication of Jeanne d' Arc Living, Magazine.
Yes, all this giddiness was over a Magazine.
I have been after this publication for months.
They are hard to get your hands on, selling out
from shopkeepers as soon as they get them.
The style of this Danish publication will take your breath away.
It's white on white, with everything you love. Everything!
And after I cuddle up on the sofa and slowly absorb every page,
I'll take some photos and share the pages,
of something that makes me frivolously happy.
After all, the reason I wanted this magazine was because I needed
My dining room is getting a makeover...don't mind the mess...
the electrician made it, but I'll have to clean up after him.
This is one of the last rooms to be rewired, and then this 110 year
old house will no longer have the old paper wrapped wire hidden
in the walls and rafters.
I'm Just Giddy!
