Best Surprise, Ever

When I got home yesterday, I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me. My pal, blogger and baker extraordinaire and the luckiest and/or most gifted thrifter ever, OctoberFarm, sent me this super special box of amazing things.
It contained 2 embroidered peacock runners. They are gorgeous, the detailing is amazing. One has a delicate white crocheted border.
The other has beautiful pink crocheted edge.
Here they are laid out on the floor for full effect.
The box also has these gorgeous vintage glass dishes.
It was hard to photograph the details, but they are beautiful. This one is divided. I can't wait to use them.
And she knew I would love this peacock statue. I have several others, but have never seen one like this before, the tail fans out beautifully. I love it. I love everything.
Thank you OctoberFarm!
