Prepare. To Be. Jealous.

I am blown away by Me-Shell's package. I got it today, and my jaw dropped. I love everything!

Here's an all-together pic:



The front of the beautifully decorated box, which reads "There is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea" Ralph Waldo Emerson:



Inside of box and lovely notebook:



Crappy picture (my hands are too shaky) of two great purses/pouches filled with raw sugar and tea. As well as some lavender from her mother's garden (I love all things lavender):



A set of great coasters with vintage images, which I totally needed for my new coffee table!:



Close up:



And she also included a fab package of chocolate espresso biscotti that I didn't get a chance to take pics of before the boy grabbed them to try!

I hope I did this right - it's my first time posting pics. Also, Me-Shell, feel free to post better pics, as I'm definitely not a pro Smiley

THANK YOU!!

well i am beyond stoked that lol stein loved my package so much!!!! Grin


i think i drove everyone crazy talking about the swap....boyfriend, friends, co-workers...not to mention my poor mother.  i gave them updates every day on what i was crafting and said "i really hope she doesn't think this is lame."  they gave me reassurance, but you know how that goes...paranoid.

so i have breathed a very deep sigh of relief.
so glad you liked everything!!!!!
i'm totally making those coasters for several different people now. (including a set for myself, naturally.) i think that your pictures are better than the set i took.
 


also....icebyrd...great ideas in the package you sent!!
i love the typewriter key necklace...my mom just bought me a pair of earrings made with typewriter keys and i love them!
