One afternoon when Nora came in from the garden she was surprised to find a large load of parcels waiting for her in the entrance hall. She guessed they had arrived with the post and been brought in by Helmer or the children.
Each parcel was beautifully packed and when Nora took a closer look she saw that they were from Marottesud in the South of France.
Did you spot them? Nora's keys.

Nora loved the envelopes!
She brought the parcels up to their livingroom to unwrap them there, but they were so many she spread them out on the floor so she could show them all to you! They were the complete works of Jane Austen, one of Nora's favourite authors and they were all collectors editions with beautiful pictures inside on every double page!
See the huge pile of books on the rocket chair!
Here are some closeups of pages from some of the books, aren't they exquisite?

And what a better place to read Jane Austen than in the gazebo? :-)
Credits: The books are by Danielle / MAROTTESUD, who was so kind to donate these treasures as the prize for the second MINI TREASURES WIKI's contest in July. One just had to edit a page or more to be part of the contest! I almost never win anything so I hardly couldn't believe my luck that I was picked as the winner of something as beautiful as these books! And so many! Thank you both to Johanna at the wiki and to Danielle! They have just started a NEW CONTEST where there will be a winner on FRIDAY the 20TH! Join in and edit a page or more if you want to be part of the contest!
The tiny keys was a gift long ago from Anne Mari or Mimmi as she calls herself in blogland, but I didn't get around to make a key chain for them until now.
