Presents from Mercedes, Rosanna, Frederica and Sabiha

I had so many presents last week, I hope I don't forget anything
First all the presents from Mercedes, all so wonderful and special!
This from Rosanna, I love them all but most the small crib and the antique spoons, wonderful!!

Sabiha give me the suitcase that she made, it's perfect!
Frederica made also some special presents for me, also very, very wonderful and she didn't know that my next project will be a childrens room, so this are the perfect presents for it.
Look at the little doll, all knitted, so cute.
This was something Mercedes has given us when Rosanna came
Isn't it great??!!
And when we arrived in Paris Sabiha and I got another present from Mercedes
I also bought some nice things in Paris, first the Laduree things, jam and chocolate
A very, very old French letter

And a old English book, I already had the old dictonary French-Dutch so I put it next to it.

Thank you girls for all the presents and I hope I didn't forget things, but you give me so much.....

Big hug, Sylvia
