Wonderful exchange from Pascale

As Carol said in her entry, this has been an American holiday week-end. So that meant many of us were driving places to enjoy 3 days away from the ordinary. We spent the holiday with our friends in the RVing group, about 90 miles from our home. As usual we had a delightful time - many things to do, but time for lots of visiting and the many meals we shared together. All in all a great time.

BUT. . . . when I arrived home, there on my doorstep was a parcel from Pascale. Oh I am so lucky - obviously she has worked hard and made and collected some wonderful things for me.

Isn't that so cute? I just love the plaids with the apples. Marvelous. And look at this fabulous dangle on the scissors:

It could be used as a scissor fob, I suppose, but it would be just so cute on a key ring or even on a bag. The shells and the beads are light, so they wouldn't be too heavy.

Thank you Pascale, very much. This is a lovely exchange and a very nice gift to end my holiday. I shall continue to practice my Dutch while I read the magazine. :-)

Marne, it;s indeed a lovely gift, my compliments for Pascale! English is rather good I think, but what do you mean by RVing group? Is it a kind of community? Just curious :)
