A Pink Saturday Surprise

I got the loveliest surprise in the post today!

A gift from my sweet long time friend and pen pal Kay!

The first time I met Kay we both may have still been in our twenties! She always had a baby girl on her hip. She was a gorgeous soft spoken LADY from the south, skinny, with waist long dark hair. I don't know why I didn't hate her for that immediately! Ha!

We have spent all the years since then talking philosophy, family, books and magazines, and decorating, sometimes from a very long distance away, as we still are now.

She's the kind of girl to remember your birthday even when you have mostly forgotten it yourself! I haven't seen this darling tissue paper around, but it looks suspiciously like Rachel's. Somebody we both love! But doesn't everybody? And tied with a sweet pink satin ribbon! Made my day!!

The gorgeous serving bowl I discovered inside matches the Bird of Paradise dishes I posted about last week! Kay reads and comments effusively on all my posts!

How's THAT for paying attention? Look how fabulous it looks with my plates!

Thank you so much Dear Kay!
Here's to starting on the next thirty years! Love, J.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Ciao! for now!
Hope you stay in the pink this Saturday!
