Package #1 Received from thisbirdsabsurd
How lucky am I?? I received package 1 from thisbirdsabsurd this afternoon. I am loving getting to know her via emails, PMs and now her first package. As it turns out, we have a lot in common! Here's a shot of everything I received.
She sent me Starbucks caramel coffee. I am a coffee and tea addict and flavored coffee is the only kind we buy (and the nearest Starbucks is an hour away). Can't wait to try it. For her something local, I received Beach Blossom Honey. My husband and I have our own bees and love to try different kinds. Satsuma fragrance was something she thinks smells good and I totally agree! I had to look it up, it's a Japanese citrus fruit and smells heavenly! The enameled sheep and antique key are from her favorite store (fun!). The Distress Ink and fabric are favorite craft supply/craft (I love that ink pad and sent her fabric, too. We share that obsession)
This little elf is handmade (!) and represents Christmas, her favorite holiday. So cute (and so talented)!
Something to read is this charming antique book with the bonus of a very old pressed flower inside. The weeping willow embroidery covers a sketch pad to carry in my purse. That willow tree is patterned after our farm logo which my daughter designed. So pretty and so personal.
Fabric bowls are for organization. My husband already claimed one for his bedside 'stuff'. Evidently MY cat (who sleeps inside his jacket all day while he works from home on the computer) broke his last one, which was made from ceramic.
Parrot feathers! Donated by her beautiful birds. I'm going to have to think really hard about what to use them for... so precious.
Wow....Something from paper was a watercolor painting. Of a goat. Of one of my goats. Of actually my favorite goat Hermione! Thisbird's evidently been cruising my blog... I have a place of honor planned for this. What an incredibly talented, generous and sweet partner I have for this swap. Thank you so much thisbirdsabsurd!!!
