i received an absolutely wonderful and exceedingly thoughtful package over the weekend.
please grab a comfy seat and a mug of coffee, and delight in these photos with me. there will be alot. fair warning.
i was seriously spoiled!! my stalker even picked up some goodies for me on her vacation to England. how lucky am i?
the first thing i opened was this lovely cigar box, featuring romeo y julieta. love it!
and inside is a world of lovely whimsies & ephemera
(pretty papers with lots of birds, nature, & patterns, old postcards - one even has writing on it!, panda magnets, panda tissues, a mini jar full of delicate shells & a completely rusted bottle cap that i adore, tons of foreign stamps, train tickets, russian nesting dolls, and packets of seeds)
gratuitous photo of the nesting dolls because they're so gorgeous - the smallest one is super tiny. my favorite!
and there were also some handmade things in the box too!
some almost-too-pretty-to-use plant markers
and some perfect amelie magnets
next i found these wonderful planting pots (that are too darn pretty to fill with dirt - i'm going to turn them into hanging lanterns for the backyard instead)
what's in these beautifully wrapped packages you ask?
a very pretty bracelet
a beautiful robin's egg necklace with pretty whimsies trapped inside
some much loved and appreciated extras:
my favorite (vegetarian) roasted chicken chips from the UK (!!!)
some gorgeous and soft yarn from the UK (!!!)
and a belt that is completely and absolutely just my style.
and who could have sent me such a delightful, whimsical, lovely package??
.the remarkable, thoughtful, & talented JacquelineD!!!
thank you so much!! i love everything!!
