Merci Beaucoup Mon Amie

Disregard the bags in the background. Mama does not know how to properly set up a picture.

We got a package in the mail a few weeks ago from Nice France!  Our friend Malyss from Chronicles from the Shore sent us a gift for being her 10,000th visitor.  Her blog has beautiful pictures from Nice and other wonderful places, and we love Malyss' poetic prose.

We got a beautiful tea towel, sachet for Mama's underthings drawer, lavender soap, two postcards and a cute painted cicada.  The theme is lavender because of the beautiful lavender fields in Nice and Southern France.

That postcard is to just Simba and me. This is the first time we received our very own postcard.

Mama put the cicada in my catnip plant for this picture, but it's going to live on the dresser. We think it's so cute.

I now want to introduce you to her two French kitties, Jim and Chestnut.
Here's Jim. Isn't he handsome?

Here's Chestnut. Who doesn't want to tickle that silly tummy?

We just really want to thank Malyss for her thoughtful gift and her friendship to Mama.
