ME... Speechless!?!?!?!?!








I was speechless today... and let me tell you, that doesn't happen often! *winks*  You see, a SURPRISE pressy came in the mail today... and I had no idea what it would be or that I'd be receiving such a generous gift as this.  It was from a certain special Friend I have come to know through Blogland, someone so like me you would think we might have been twins separated at birth... Miss Vanna of DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR.   Of coarse this pressy was wrapped beautifully... a small taste of what fabulous Treasure lay inside... and when I opened it... I fairly squealed like a schoolgirl!!!  Okay, so maybe that isn't quite speechless... squealing??! *LOL*  But I was certainly gobsmacked and at a complete loss for WORDS!!! Yes, me... the one who can't stop talking... because inside lay the most exquisite Victorian Velvet fringed piano-style shawl the size of a very large pillow... and I LOVE those!!!  In fact, during the last Melrose Crawl I had seen one very similar and adored it... even photographed it... so to receive an unexpected surprise Gift of one with the most beautiful Bohemian color palette and floral print... of soft as butter Vintage Velvet and long Silk Fringe... I couldn't stop caressing it... the feel of such Vintage Fabric Fabulousness just cannot be compared my Friends... it is luxurious to the senses.  What an amazingly generous Gift my Friend, it really touched my Heart... THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Dear Vanna... I could feel the Love... and you know me SO well already Sista Friend... a Huge Bohemian Nag Champa scented Hug and Love from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian   

Here's an archived Photo I hadn't yet used in a Post of some of the similar Victorian Velvet Shawls I had been lusting over during a Melrose Crawl just last month...  Good Lord Vanna, you know me WELL GF... even to the preferred color palette!!! *smiles*

  1. Awwww Dawn I'm so glad you liked it! I was digging through that closet of mine..I stopped...picked it up...and thought "this looks so Dawn to me!" It was screaming victorian bohemian! It had been in there for years, so I'm so glad it found a home where it'll be loved *winks* You're so welcome my sistah friend! Vanna
