Ode to Evelyne...
Yes, this is yet another post about a gift that arrived unexpectedly in the post for Q.

Evelyne is a treasured friend whom I met only through the magical medium of the blogosphere.
Evelyne is a loving mother to beautiful daughters. She is a faithful friend even to those she has only come to know through their blogs. She is a beautiful and strong woman with a love of craft, a talented hand, and an impeccable eye for art and photography.

So when a package for Q arrived on our doorstep, posted by Evelyne in France, I knew that it would be something very special and heartfelt.
Q opened the lovely fabric and twine of the packaging with a little shudder of excitement, and unwrapped the trio of Waldorf-style dolls within with an appropriate measure of awe. With her tiny, agile fingers she pointed out the beautiful stitching.
I allowed her to explore the contents of Evelyne's package at her own speed, and, of her own accord, the very first thing she did was to clasp each doll's little arm and make them "hold hands". I thought that was so sweet, and so appropriate.

Many thanks, Evelyne, and much love sent your way. OX M & Q

Merci Maïa, je suis très touchée par ton billet. Tu es l'une des toutes premières personnes rencontrées sur les blogs. Cette amitié virtuelle est semblable à un collier monté sur un fil d'or et sur lequel chacune d'entre vous est une perle.
Je tricote une famille lapin...mais chut...c'est un secret !

What perfect little additions to the tree house!
Small children are so receptive to beauty in the smallest details. Your daughter is so lucky having such caring parents who don't surround her with ugly plastic stuff. drumsc
