My dear friends in Germany sent us a Christmas package. They mailed it in December and I just received it on Monday. Sometimes real mail is funny like that. It was almost like receiving a double gift; I had long forgotten about the gift and assumed it long lost.
Inside were boxes of marzipan, cookies, super clever buttons, yummy smelling beauty goodies and the most amazing hand-embroidered dream pillowcase. The pillowcase was a belated Hochzeit gift and it is almost too beautiful to use.
The pillowcase is the creation of Ana Botezatu, a friend of my friends and a wickedly talented artist. I got a little carried away with the photos but I couldn't decide which little guys not to show off.
Even the button is amazing.
***Ana's work was also featured yesterday on Erin's blog, Design for Mankind.
