A Birthday Gift

November 11th was my Birthday and the day before on Monday I got the most wonderful box in the mail from Donna my friend who lives in Az.
She told me that when the box came I was to call her on the phone, it would be like she was here with me while I opened it.
It was a rather large box and when I opened it, it was full of packing peanuts. I went digging through and pulled out something that was really protected with bubble wrap and then plastic wrap all held securely with packing tape. I was so excited to get whatever it was unwrapped and it was taking too long! lol. I finally got everything undone and wow, wow wait until you see what Donna made for me! I absolutely love it and couldn't take me eyes off of it.
It is this beautiful Victorian tray that she made out of a picture frame!
Isn't it just beautiful and so darling!

I really love this tray! It is so Victorian and dainty and me! lol
Thank you so much Donna, I will treasure this forever!
