{ jet lag mother’s day and a surprise }

P1170743
Today is Mother ‘s day in France …  I wish you all, my friends readers & lovely mothers, wherever you live , a very happy { French } Mother’s day … and of course :  Bonne Fête des Mères maman !!!

 

Yesterday I checked my mailbox quite late … when I say late it was almost 8 pm… and a little surprise was quietly waiting for me …protected by a soft and comfy envelope… I can’t tell how surprised and touched I was when I opened the package … I have had a true emotional overwhelming moment …I am still sort of misty-eyed right now … 

 merci julia
Julia …the very talented and adorable artist behind   Rennes le Chateau  sent me the most adorable leather zipper  pouch .. It is on my knees right  now, as I can’t keep my hand off of it …  It is so soft, so beautiful …

This morning I’ve used every pretext possible to have an occasion to actually wear it … Guess who went to the boulangerie, with a very enthusiastic face …  then to the bureau de tabac  to get sunday newspaper … As I can be very imaginative, I found a few others reasons too … :)  Monsieur le Marquis said I should have such a lovely surprise more often, so that he could stay at home quietly on sunday mornings !!!
You know me I couldn’t help myself taking some pictures … Julia, MERCI  !!!
