very special!



OoooOoooooOOoohhhhhHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
A letteR!
But not just a simple one. The entire envelope was decorated with collage and soft water colours.





It even had chocolate stamps from France!



But who could have sent this letter ?

Was it Charlie from his chocolate factory?


So my dear Florence decided it was a surprise for the dolls and that it was for the dolls to open the precious letter.



Inside, there was a beautiful handmade card on which I could recognise Martine! a famous character from my childhood.


But also , Aliénore found a little red parcel and was determined to keep what was inside whatever it would be.



It was an adorable knitted fungi!

And Aliénore put it on her bed because she thought it would look perfect against the red Gingham of her pillow.



And do you knwo who?


My dear friend JOJO CARAMEL who was thanking me for thanking her to be my 70th follower!!!
(how polite we are on Blogland!)
What a surprise!!!
I just love her universe and we have a common obsession with toadstools.
Believe me, if I could write this in red with little red spots, I WOULD!
Merci beaucoup pour ce joli cadeau qui a illuminé ma petite journée de Papillon!

Quel beau cadeau sans parler de l'enveloppe et de la carte. Tout est superbe. En plus tu as réussi à faire une très belle histoire avec tout ça, et des photos qui font rêver.
