Gifts from Afar

As you know, I attended the premier scrapbooking event, Reflections this past weekend. I stayed at the hotel where the event was held on Thursday and Friday nights with friends Marsi and Lorretta as my roomates. Marsi is a world traveler for HP and had just returned from Russia and China where she picked up these bits of loveliness.

These lovley ladies are from Russia and the are called Russian Nesting or Matryoshka dolls. I love them.

Marsi also presented me with this little bottle. It was hand pained in China - from the INSIDE of the bottle. The bottle itself is stunning but to know that it was painted from the inside blows me away!!

Thank you Marsi for your thoughtfulness. I treasure these items.
