This morning I received an email with attached pictures from Jackie regarding an order I had placed with our company FMFCompagnie. Now you might find that strange that I would order from our company, but since I live "across the pond" and I need a special gift delivered that will express my love .........Jackie is who comes first and foremost in my mind. Jackie has always given gifts where she puts special thought in to the celebration, or the occasion. It begins with her thoughtful idea, but it is her heart that is reflected in her detail to coordinating the writing, wrapping and presentation. There are so many times through the years when she has delivered a gift that was so beautiful, I truly did not want to open it. I wanted to admire it "as is" and take in her love and friendship that was wrapped in to the bow. This past week I was in need of a gift that when it was received, it would express a very heartfelt love from my family and I. Jackie came through......
I have all ready imagined how my sister -in-law will react when she opens it because of the love Jackie poured in to this gift, but I know Jackie pours that same effort in to every purchase from our company. She and I love gift giving.....it truly is more special than being on the receiving end for us. So, if we can ever help with a special gift request that you have, we would love to be of heartfelt service in every detail for you.
We will also have our beautiful collection of sachets, pillows and furniture at the Santa Monica Flea and Antique Market July 28th.
I can't help but to show you a few finds this week. I was running errands and my favorite little shop was open and the owner was unpacking boxes from her weekend purchases. It is all about timing isn't it!!!
I loved this brass tray with an inlay of enamel flowers. She said it is from the time of WWII and was brought back from a trip to India. I love the aged brass and the state of the patina. I also found another bread cutting board.......I love these.....daily bread! I also found a set of wood bowls for lawn bowling. They were made in Glasgow and have the name Murray personalized on them. Always on the hunt.....Jackie has been doing the same in Phoenix. You can just imagine our emails going back and forth with pics!!!! So much fun!
