I recieved my picture order – THANK YOU for the quick response and beautiful picture. My best friend is from South Africa and she’s coming to live in the US soon for school. I wanted a “little piece of home” for her to look at since she can not see the Southern Cross from the US. I went to South Africa for 3 weeks last year and it was beautiful seeing the Southern Cross every night – especially after she told me the stories about the cross.
Again, thank you so much for providing this wonderful service!
