Gifts from family ...

Back again with more gifts...

Lovely lovely family made me a photo album
with photos from my childhood and until today...
Wasn't too big at this time...in 1963...:0)
look at those little bootees...wonder who made them...:0)
Inside the album...
my family had left me lots of wonderful greetings...
and it all became very emotional...
cried some but laughed a lot too...
Lucia...
with a pretty crown made out of straw...
Here I am with my brother Anders...
I remembering him putting the candle to close
to his hair once...ouachhhh!!!

Won't show the last photo....
smile...
they added a photomontage of me probably 80 years old...:0))

It was REALLY wonderful getting this one...
thanks to especially my dear daughters and Jimmy
who had put all this together...
More tea ...
from Anders and his family...
rose tea in an absolutely wonderful pink tin!!
And this absolutely heavenly scented package
came from France...
where my cousin Eve lives with her family...
Once visiting there...
I had them to stop at every spot I could find
where I could smell the lavender...
Mmmmmmm...
easily dreaming my self away with that scent!

Eve...thanks for remembering
and to add those lovely lavender fabrics...
Also remembering me hunting patchwork stores
while visiting her...
had looked out a shop in Lyon...
and when getting there...hah..
they had closed to celebrate the 14th of July...;0)))

Have one last gift to show you...
and dear dear friends...now I will need your help...
So hang on ... wait for the next post!!

Love...

...and the party kept going and going...

SURPRISE!!!!
Guess who stood on our doorstep the morning after...
This little cutie pie with all her brothers and parents...
I do know I have a crazy brother...;0)
but I never thought they would come for a visit...
and especially not that early they came...
( around nine o'clock )

he must have milked the cows with the speed of lightning...
and I don't think I want to know how fast he drove
the 23 Swedish miles to our place...pheeww...
But I'm happy they came...
now I finally could see and hold baby
Snöfrid for the first time
Lovely hairdo this morning...:0)
Jarl, the oldest ...
digging in on the best breakfast they had eaten...
cake and cupcakes...:0)
This is brother number two, Agnar...
(Who loves pink...:0)
with his mother Anna in the background...
And the third guy Seved ...
who never stops talking...;0)
This is my youngest brother Gussar...
the happy father of Snöfrid...
The younger boys were so much more interested in Viktor playing...
than talking to us...:0)
The rest of us took turns in carrying baby Snöfrid...
Anders ...:0) a proud uncle...
And Louise...
took the opportunity to cuddle some with the baby...
And back to the parents again...
This picture is kind of funny...
it looks like we have the baby hung in a rope...
but not...it's the lamp...:0)
Even Molly found time to enjoy little Märtas visit...:0))

No more surprises...
but I must say...all of them ...
have been the most lovely surprises!!

And to finally meet this little beautiful girl...
It was wonderful...
Thanks brother and family!!!

Maybe we should do this all over again...lol...

Kind of sad when everyone was leaving...the guests...
mum and dad...
Anders to Stockholm ...
Happy I still had Louise here for one day more...:0)

Love to all...and
thanks for stopping by...

My dear daughter Petra and her Jimmy...
Who were so tired this day...
no wonder with all that they had prepared...

Finally somebody had the guts to dig into that delicious cake....
My cousin Ylva's Sonja was first out...
Mmmmmmm....

And after this...my photographer must have eaten too much cake
and sweets because no more photos were taken on the guests that
arrived later...Hmmmm....but he's forgotten...:0)

My dear dear best friend Marica came with her husband Roger...didn't know this...but what did I know??
Not much...:0)
They came with lovely lovely gifts and so nice to see them...
And talk...:0)
fun for Marica to see and talk to Louise...

And after them my lovely friends from work came...
Maria and her husband Tommy...
and I'm so sorry that there arent any photos of Maria's outfit...
she NEVER EVER wears pink....
she said...once in a lifetime and just for you...:0))

She had found a pink leatherjacket and a wonderful dress...
at work...all recycled of course...
but none the less absolutely perfect...

Åsa...had found a sweet soft and dusky pink outfit...

Sara...I think she had her own pink dress...
her daughter had styled her with pretty socks...

And sweet Ulla...who had missed that the party was this day...
