Brown Paper Packages....

Bright pretty packages from Mamy and Papy in France!!
 Arriving home from school this week, the postman pulls up in front of the house
I always get wonderful treats including gorgeous decorative sugar cubes on left. The red boxes are my candied chestnuts wrapped up in gold. A sweet box of artisan chocolates and more.
 Our presents from France have arrived!! Look at my gourmet goodies....
 Waiting until Christmas is tough.....but dreaming for now.
 What? The postman had even more!!! Mommy won two wonderful giveaways!!
 I love my sign From Castle and Cottage!
 My pillow from Judy is so so cute! See her fantastic shop here!!!
