Selvage from Germany

My sweet friend Martina of Cologne, Germany sent me this piece of fabric with a very pretty selvage. So far, it's too nice to cut. Haha. After petting it for a while, I'll be able to use it. Thank you, Martina!
And Martina uses selvages herself, so you see how sweet she is to send it to me!  :)

Pretty soft colors. What does it say?

I saw the same print in a purple and red color way at Hancocks in Tacoma, WA, USA.
Your fabric looks to be of a higher quality with a tighter weave though.
I am missing the second word, and my German is a bit rusty. Tante is Aunt, and it should be close to "Lovely (something) for you."
Very pretty! Have fun with it!

Dear Karen,
to answer the question of Dar and Cathy, the print on the selvage says: "tante ema Lieblingsstücke für dich" that means: "aunt ema favourite pieces for you" Have fun with it, but please, use it, because there will be more "tante ema's" on its way to you ;-)
