Swedish Pink Saturday





Welcome to Pink Saturday with Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog.






One of my special friends from Sweden, Elisabeth, at http://petiteyekiss.blogspot.com sent me this lovely pink handmade brooch.


This little tag was attached showing the creator of this crochet brooch. Be sure to check her blog at http://angelpearls.blogspot.com. She does excellent work and has much more to share with us.

This is a copy of the nice letter Elisabeth sent with the gift. As you can see, they were leaving for vacation. A long the way she would send me a post card. I received today this pretty card from her travels somewhere in Sweden.


As you can see, I even kept the envelope the brooch came in. I was fascinated by the stamps on it. I found them to be so interesting.

Thanks LV! Your blog makes me happy Happy that you liked the gift and postcards, it is is the end of the Swedish holidays, there are not many beautiful postcards left, but it shows the northern part of Sweden.
And you are so right, Angel Pearls also make wonderful jewelry. Very well done.
I wish you a really nice Pink Saturday
Elisabeth

What a sweet thing to get in the mail! Someitmes I save the envelope for the stamps, too, when something unique comes in.
The brooch is so pretty with the pearl center.
Have a wonderful weekend and I will catch up with you again next Pink Saturday!

HI LV Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I love the crocheted brooch that your sweet Elizabeth made for you. The little pearl is definitel the element of surprise. I can't wait to see it pinned on a lapel for Fall, or even a purse. How beautiful it will look.

Love the postcard too. And from Sweden. Wow that is a long way to come. How long did it take? When was it postmarked?

I too would have saved the packaged envelope. I would keep the stamps for sure, as you never know when you might craft them on to something.

Hope you had a beautiful day sweet friend. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
