rainbows + roses (and paris, too)



Kayla, who writes the incredible blog Exquisite Banana, sent this lovely little package in the mail recently. I happened to win a giveaway of one of her paintings right before she left for Europe (where she got engaged!), so she sent me this beautiful rainbow painting, framed and all.

She included a couple gifts from her trip too: a postcard from Paris and a wooden bottle filled with authentic rose oil from Bulgaria. It's funny how quickly everything became a part of our home - the painting is perfect on the shelf in our dining room and I love the pretty postcard on the wall cubby in our kitchen. Needless to say, the thoughtfulness of it all just makes me smile.

I just got chills seeing these goodies on display in your home. I'm so happy you won the give-a-way: sharing a small glimmer of my own passion and beloved memories with you makes my heart feel full. Have a glorious weekend, my dear!

It's like a fairy tale world in your pictures. Some princess should be living there.
