Look What Came

What a wonderful surprise I had yesterday when Mr. Postman delivered this package from my lovely friend Lilli over at Make Mine Blissful. Don't you just love the wrapping? And all the little goodies she included - what a sweetheart!
This is the bag that Lilli custom made for me. Isn't it gorgeous? These pics were taken as soon as I unwrapped it, so please ignore the fold lines. Lilli's photography of the bag is much better than mine and you can see her beautiful pics here.
This is a close-up of what really drew me to this particular set of fabrics Lilli had chosen. . .Mr. Birdie. Isn't he sweet? Love the colors of the bag and the Amy Butler fabrics.
Besides loving the bag, what is so neat about having Lilli make a bag for you is the amount of love she puts into each one. She writes about the process, how she makes it and her thoughts as she is putting it all together on her blog. I think this is such a special touch which makes the everything so much more personal.
