A lovely gift from a dear friend and pictures this morning

It's Sunday morning and I started with a relaxing morning.My DH is hunting elks and I have been reading and I have been doing some preparations for the Christmas gifts I'm going to do in November.We are not celebrating Haloween but we have some candles brighting up the day.

On Wednesday afternoon a package from a very dear friend was in the postbox.She has been a penpal of mine for some years.Real letters in the postbox.I love to get and write letters.Every time I also enjoy the stamps ,a great interest I have.Small arts .Sometimes every year we make gifts for each other too.When you see this gift you can understand the efforts she has made for me and so much love and friendship she has "put" in it.My favourite colours and my favourite motif, flowers.And the feeling,she wanted to brighten up the darker days we have.She really succeded.I'm totally overwhelmed.Thank you dear M.
