It's the unexpected

that often thrills the most.

The flowers that your husband brings home that are completely his idea. The picture your daughter leaves hidden beneath your pillow. A kind message from a friend left on your answering machine at just the right moment.

Today we received an unexpected package from my dear friend in Christelle in Paris, a gorgeous gift she bought while in Syria recently. She thought perhaps I could turn this luscious fabric into something special and I hope I can - I have an idea, but it will take me a little while to figure out.

I wish I could post a link to Christelle's work for you to share. She has a normal job but her talent lies in photography and she has travelled the world taking the most amazing shots. I have the worst memory but she has been almost everywhere .... except Australia! Because I'm so amazed at how widely she travels I'm going to ask her to send me a list of everywhere she's visited because I know you too will be in awe. Thank you my dear friend. Gross bijoux.
