Jie Ma. You’re welcome. -cc ;-]
I sent a package to Stefan in Berlin that was not only filled with expensive gifts for him, a love letter, & several of my clothing a items & dictionaries (since I’ll be moving there soon)…
I had also put in one of my most valued possessions - a small, brand new, brown, leather pocket book that I had found in the library section of a Recycling Center in Switzerland several years ago. The book was in mint condition. Why someone would give it away, I have no idea..but I was glad they did, because I cherished it.
The cover was lined, on the top and bottom, by a row of small inlaid gold stars. In the middle of the cover (between the two rows of stars) was the image of a bear, also gold inlaid.
Printed inside were beautiful French quotes, sayings, & poems.
Now the package is lost & there is little to no hope of retrieving it.
I would give anything to get that book back.
Calling on the power of the Tumblr community (& predominately my international followers I suppose) to help me perhaps track down another one of these books - or at least something similar.
As far as I’m concerned, everything else in the package can be repurchased with ease.
But this was priceless.
Any & all help is so immensely appreciated:
Do you know what book I’m talking about or do you know of one similar I could re-purchase somewhere?
& If not, could you share this? Maybe someone who follows you could also help.
Alles Gute zum Geburtstag
