Yesterday when I went to mail my package to Onyxnox, I was also picking up my package from her!!! I was so excited and surprised by it's heaviness! It is an amazing package! I couldn't believe it! And now I have to apologize for all the pictures I am posting, but it really deserves it because it is fabulous!!! Thank you Onyxnox!!!
I opened the box to first see this beautiful box with an image from my wist transferred onto it, and other tree images on the inside lid, bottom, and gardening quotes on each side:
one of 4 quotes:
I was just thinking the other day how I needed something to keep my seeds in!
Inside the box were a wonderful collection of plant tags - copper that I can mark with a ball point pen, and Onyxnox jazzed them up with some beads. My daughter likes them a lot!
Inside there were also dried pepper pods with seeds, and scarlet runner beans seeds, both from Onyxnox's garden, along with some seed packets of her favourite annuals and heritage carrots! (pictured later on in the post) Can't wait to plant!
There's more: 2 awesome red t-shirts (my favourite colour) with owls stenciled on them - one for me and one for my daughter! I'm having a baby in September, so I can't wear my shirt for a bit, but my daughter will be wearing hers!
And more wonderfulness! 2 etched/glass painted votives with an eagle image done in West Coast Native style, a cooling necktie with water-holding crystals inside, and 2 glass tile pendants with irises and morning glories:
And more: the cause of the weight in the package...
A cement garden sign!!!! Oh my goodness, I love it the most I think, but it is hard to pick! I love love love it!!!
This second picture shows how Onyxnox made it, with each sign brick having a little stand. So cool! It was her first time working with cement too! Very successful!
And a bunch of fun extras:
seeds, velcro plant ties, gardening gloves (they fit!), nail scrubbers, gel gems, hot pepper jelly and recipe, a little gnome on a turtle (going in my flowerbed), paper seed pots, and citronella candles!
:)Thank you so much Onyxnox!!! I love everything! You are an amazing swap partner!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
