I have to share my surprise!

The doorbell rang ... and was waiting for me?!

a gorgeous array of roses ... yellow (my favorites!), red, peach, and some gorgeous two-toned pink-and-red ...
Why did I receive this plethora of beauties? They were a get-well gift from Daniel, le petit Américain! Daniel is the delightful son of Julio and Dan, who enchanted us with "his" stories of his first ever trip to Paris this year. Click here to read them yourself. You will fall in love with le petit Américain!

Also, if you aren't familiar with Daniel's dad, Julio's blog, Beaux Mondes Designs, you owe yourself a visit. His tablescape photos are always spectacular!
Thank you Daniel - and Julio and Dan! You have brightened my day so much!

Also, thanks to everybody who has sent good wishes and cards and emails - I appreciate each and every one. It's astounding what caring and generous and thoughtful people are residents here in Bloglandia!

I'm back to my sick bed ... but you ...

Go make something beautiful!

Hi Tristan!!!

I'm so glad you love the roses. It's the least I could do for someone who always puts a smile on my Dads faces whenever they visit your blog. Thank you for the plug on my vacation to Paris. That was very thoughtful of you. Please get well soon.

Hi Robin,

I hope you're starting to feel better. I feel so bad that you're suffering with that stuff. I keep getting told that with my age and all my medical conditions, and all the stress I'm under that I'll probably get it too....yeah so nice to be given high hopes.....LOL

I'm sending you happy, soothing thoughts in hopes that it's over sooner rather than later. God Bless.

Hugs,
Meri

What GORGEOUS flowers from such a sweet and thoughtful young man! It's good to hear from you - I hope you are fully recovered soon. Theresa :)

audrey said...

Oh Tristan, I am SO sorry. I did not know you were sick with shingles. I would have never bothered you with that email yesterday. From all I have ever heard, shingles are awful. I hope you are getting better quickly.
I was off blog for some time myself sick for over a month with some kind of virus ~ tonsilitis and bronchitis. Yuck! It was bad.
I am all better now and back to blogging.
You must get better, too!!! I will keep you in my thoughts and send healing vibes your way.
The roses are gorgeous, Tristan!!! I went to the blog and read all about the Little American's first trip to Paris. What a fun and interesting read!!
I guess I should have sent an email. This is getting too long.
Be well, Tristan!!!!

I hope they worked.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Home and Heart said...

I have been perusing your wonderful blog, and had some much needed chuckles, as well as inspiration!

I am so sorry to hear you have shingles. My mom had them once, a later spin off version of chicken pox. You can ask your Dr. for lidocaine patches, which you put on your skin and it numbs them up!!
They aren't narcotic, so you can still enjoy a nice martini or toddy!

Marilyn said...

Dearest....
I hope you are feeling better....I think those beauties would make anyone feel good! The are so unusual & WOW!!
Take Care Sweet Friend!
Hugs,
Marilyn

Sherri@lavenderfields said...

Poor you! I know your pain. I had Shingles about 15 years ago. No fun. I hope they caught it early enough that it doesn't cause you any nerve damage. Sounds like you are slowing down which is really the best thing until you make a full recovery. Mine was was on my ribs and wrapped around to my back. Like you said at least the whole world didn't have to see it there! Beautiful flowers...Get well Sherri : )

Pam @ Frippery said...

I stopped by to let you know since we are moving to the left coast, I am selling off trims, appliques and tassels for $1 each! Either a trip to Stowe or a list from my website with part numbers. Phone is listed there if you are interested and have questions.

So sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Also, I confess, I spent too much time following the travels of the delightful little boy in Paris!

My Grama's Soul said...

Hi Tristen.....this is my first visit. I'm so sorry you have the shingles. I do hear they are incredibly painful.
