Make a Wish...

I had a great Valentines Day. 
It became extra special when the 
mailman left a big package at 
my front door! 

Inside was this FABULOUS candelabra 
that Marie sent to me for my birthday!

Talk about perfect... it looks so   
incredible with my decor. 

And look at this sweet Birthday Card 
she made for me... 

not to mention this lovely Valentine Card. 

I think she's a genius! 

I KNOW she's a genius!! 

Look at how pretty this 
is on my dining room table. 

    I love decorating with some spring 
touches when the weather is cold 
and blustery outside. It shouts 
"There WILL be a spring!"  

I've added some pink cherry blossoms 
to my tall birdcage... 

and placed my darling crown votive on 
the silver tray with it.
(A Christmas gift from Marie.) 

And I have to show you the beautiful 
Paper Doll Angel that Marie made for me. 
Isn't she the sweetest ever?! 

Thanks Marie for making my 
birthday so special! You make me 
feel like a princess! 

Love & Blessings, 
Edie Marie
