on an airplane, from France :)


Mais presentes! É verdade :) desta vez, uma caixinha direccionada ao Lourenço com todo o charme francês =) Temos recebido presentes lindos, temos sido inundados por pacotes de fofura!!! Mas o que tenho para vos mostrar hoje... é de fazer o queixo cair no chão! Quem faz pontos cruz irá apreciar bem o carinho e as horas dedicadas a este presente...



... Uma mantinha bordada e costurada pela Valérie =))))



Uma peça tão grande que fica difícil fotografar :p Coloquei-a sobre o berço para tentar mostrar a peça completa, cada quadradinho bordado é uma delicadeza! Reparem bem nos cantinhos, não são um amor?? :)



A Valérie tem o dom de me deixar sem palavras! Não há como agradecer tamanho carinho e dedicação =) Podem ver fotos melhores no seu blog, o pormenor de cada quadradinho e o detalhe do tecido :) Leiam o post, garanto-vos que está muito giro :D



Não acaba aqui! ;) Além das velas tão fofas, na caixinha vinha uma carta, não para mim mas para o Lourenço =) Uma longa carta que conta como a Valérie conheceu a mamã, fala também do presente que fez e transborda de carinho... Não há nada que consiga mostrar o quanto estas páginas são especiais ♥ Tenho guardado todos os postais junto com um álbum do Lourenço, para mais tarde recordar :) claro que esta cartinha será guardada com todo o carinho e, um dia, também o Lourenço irá ler =)
♥♥♥

More gifts! :) It's true :) This time, a package arrived with my baby boy's name and all the French charm =) We have received beautiful gifts, we have been overwhelmed by packages full of cuteness!!! But what I have to show you today... will make your jaw drop on the floor! Those who stitch will appreciate very well the amount of affection and hours devoted to this gift...
...A baby blanket all handmade by Valérie =))))

Such a big piece it's not easy to take photos :p I put it on the crib so I could show you the whole blanket, every little stitched square is a delight! Even the corners, look, isn't it the most adorable thing?? :)

Valérie has this magic power to leave me speechless! Saying thanks it's not enough to all this amount of affection and dedication =) You can see better pictures on Valérie's blog, a close up to each stitched square and the detail on the fabric :) Read her post, I assure you it's very cute :D

And it doesn't end here! ;) Besides the cute feet shaped candles, there was also a letter, not to me but to my baby boy =) A long letter that tells how Valérie met mommy, also speaks about the making of his gift and it's overflowing with affection... There's nothing that can show how much these pages are special ♥ I've saved all the cards along with an album for my baby, to remember later :) This letter will also be saved with all my love and one day Lourenço will read =)

I am still in awe of this beautiful blanket! When Valérie sent me some photos a little while ago it bought tears to my eyes... and it still does now that I see it again in Lourenço's cot! I love the idea of a letter to your little man... you have some lovely memories to put away for him to enjoy again when he is all grown up!!
Big hugs xx

My jaw has dropped Nia!! WOW! Valerie is amazing! I adore Beatrix Potter and now I have to think of something else for Lourenco...lol! I always give a Beatrix Potter book to my friend's babies. It's a tradition I have. The books are such classics and so enchanting to have as a child. Hugs to you and little Lourenco!

WOW!!!! Nia és uma sortuda! :) Estou sem palavras. Essa manta é um sonho!!! O Lourenço vai adorar adormecer nela. :) Consegue-se sentir o amor com que a Valma bordou estes delicados gráficos. É realmente uma prenda com um valor inestimável. :) Estima muito bem essa manta Nia. Quem sabe se um dia um netinho não a vai usar? :P

Beijinhos
