  7. Dear Mercedes, you have done it again; worked your magic and created a little wonder. Everything is beautiful but do you know what I like best? the curtains ! the tieback, placed so high and decorated with the tiny roses is something I'd like in real life. And you have found a gorgeous way to display all your friends' gifts. I love it, Rosanna
