Thank You The Nest

I just love receiving packages in the mail. And I've been waiting so patiently for this one, it had to come all the way from the UK. I won a giveaway at The Nest. If you aren't already a follower of The Nest then you Must stop by. Sam has a darling home and a Etsy store with the cutest pillows ever. I got to pick out which ever one I wanted and I choose this Whale pillow. It's on burlap and was made to look like a vintage salt sack. It was inspired by a salt packet Sam bought on a trip to france. Sel de Mer (Salt) and Baleine (Whale).
Here is one of the newest pillows in her etsy shop. Isn't that bunny so darling. It's just perfect for spring.

I also received this pair of slate coasters, they are hand cut and polished by a man in West Wales.

They are really neat. I have them sitting on my coffee table.

When I opened the package it smelled so good. It was because of this sweet little heart pillow filled with Lavender.

Which I have hanging on a hook in the entry.

And lastly I received these 2 little heart candles....which also smell wonderful.

I've got them sitting on my mantel.

This is my Late Winter/Early spring mantel. You can see more of it Here.

And because I Love Love this pillow soo much, One last picture.

Thanks Again Sam at The Nest.
