all the way from france

My "petite valisette" full of goodies from Sophie arrived last week, all the way from France, and I had not opened the packages so that I could take the photos yesterday to share with you.

EDITED TO ADD: You can find these cute suitcases here. They are priced in Euros, but one Euro = $1.38. You can contact Sophie and she will arrange to ship these internationally.

Can you believe I didn't tear into them right away? I practiced severe restraint. Gordon immediately had his eye on that blue fabric notebook...a very nice size for an art journal, right? The girls are going to each have a pack of the drawing pencils {there are three} and will probably snag one of the cooking journals, as they both love to help Mommy and DaDa in the kitchen.

I hope to add a few of these items to my Fall mini album, which you can still purchase here and here  -  I've marked them down to $22.00. A special thank you to Sophie of French Home Made and Ma Petite Valisette for inviting me to participate in her International Swap adventure.
