The Perfect Gift for the Perfect Host


Hmmm...brown envelope. Something unfortunate for Mr. Blandings?

Heavens, no. That would be unseemly.



It's a little, no, quite big actually, package from pve design.



Perfection. A lovely host gift for our big city friend. I had no idea how much he loved the one with the mice - his screen saver for weeks, as I understand. These little jewels are especially for him.




I can't wait to wrap them up and send them off. Our visits there are always special; it's sometimes difficult to come up with just the thing to let him know how much we enjoy them. Fortunately for me, Patricia Van Essche has an extraordinarily talent; these are spot on. Lucky friend, lucky me.

How charming! What a perfect host's gift. Patricia is amazing the way she can just whip out those sketches - she really has talent!

Yes what an original idea for a host's gift. You are a generous friend Patricia (Mrs. B) and PVE is amazing :)

Ha ha! Loved your intro to this post. You will certainly be invited back with this gift.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Brilliant - thanks, we'll see if Mr. Blandings thinks it's funny - he reads every day, but doesn't get a preview!

Patricia's easy style is just so great. Anyone would be over the moon to get these. What a great gift, Mrs. Blandings. As a Graphic Artist, I know the joy a gift of a sketch or a painting can give. PVE's drawings are to be coveted!
Plus, may I say, your friend has the BEST house...love the offset entrance.

Mrs. Blandings said...

He is the best. Even my husband and I fight over him a bit. I do think he will cherish these.
