show and tell

This is my first time participating in Show and Tell. I have seen this meme before and today I feel just that way: I want to show and tell something terrific that happened to me !

The wonderful Connie generously hosted an Autumn give away , here is the picture she posted on her blog. And guess what: yours truly got it!!

A bright green package crossed the Atlantic and arrived this week: a wonderful book "Autumn" by Susan Branch and one of Connie's own creations: a note pad, which she said it's "something you can write your grocery list in or even have a quick game of tic-tac-toe"! But it is way too pretty for that! Judge for yourself:

Thank you very much, Connie! the book is such a delight, with great recipes and beautiful drawings! The note pad is truly special, Connie put every beautiful little detail on the cover herself:

Moreover, the package included a lovely card also made by Connie, the pink one on the left in the above pictures, which reads:
are flowers
in the garden
of life

And so are blogging friends too! Thank you, Connie!
