These pillow covers . . . they are all made of some kind of silk and the colors are so vibrant!
She laid out an array of silk scarves, embroidered bags, purses and these shoes which were custom made for her (did I mention that all of these things cost just dollars in American money??)
Included with my gifts were these spices: Cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, peppercorns, ginger and tea.
And then, she said, "Mom, I saw these and I told my friends, I don't know what she'll do with these but I know she'll find SOME use for them!" My daughter knows me well --
Individually, hand-painted, porcelain knobs!
Gee, do you think I CAN find some use for these???
Finally, I will share with you this short video clip taken at the airport when she arrived from the gate. You see, we have TWO of these beautiful girls, identical twins. These girls had not been apart for more than just a few days in their entire life so this was quite trying, especially for the twin left behind at school! What a reunion it was!
