This was my first year participating in the Persephone Secret Santa event and it was a blast. My Santa was extraordinarily generous and sent me some splendid gifts that I am thrilled about.
Greenbanks by Dorothy Whipple was my Persephone book and it is just what I wanted. I can’t wait to start reading it! She also sent a gorgeous Christmas tree ornament and a scrumptious box of Ferrero Rocher (which is already gone, by the way).
And look at these glitter greetings! They are nifty postcards of vintage London with glitter embellishments. I love the card pictured on the case of Queen Elizabeth in all her glory.
AND she also sent Ex Libris by Anne Fadiman and a beautiful bookmark featuring ‘Reading on the Rocks’ by John George Brown. I am so excited to read the literary essays in Ex Libris and the bookmark is just lovely.
Isn’t everything wonderful?
Who was the amazing giver of this bounty? Danielle from A Work in Progress! Thanks so much, Danielle! I feel fortunate to have received so many fantastic gifts.
Thanks also to Claire and Verity for hosting and organizing the entire event. I hope to participate again next year!
