My first package arrived today from nostephot! I learned some wonderful things about the person that she is! I even found we have quite a few things in common, and a few differences!
First up I did not get a picture before I started tearing into everything, but each item came in a cute pink polka dotted bag with brown labels describing what it held. A few of the bags did show up in random photos! I thought I would never finish opening and with each bag I learned a little more about nostephot! We both like to make a presentation with our gifts!
Nostephot sent an extra that she explained was because of her plans to redo an old trailer and travel around the country. I too have been looking at old vintage trailers and have plans to do the same thing. I want something small and easy to pull that I can take anywhere. I have a trailer on the lake and this is perfect to put my trailer keys on! Brilliant, I love the ribbon!
Also in this picture is a resin rice and red beans bracelet! I love it and it is just my style! Can't wait to wear it to work tomorrow! The candle is salted caramel and a scent that I too enjoy! It smells good enough to eat, kinda like caramel popcorn! In the left corner is a Harry Potter Keychain, my first ever Harry Potter themed item, I know I am a little slow!
A close up of the way cool bracelet nostephot made! Fits my image!
For favorite food and drinks, I got gummie bears, Yum Yum, I also eat these often and chewing gum. I too am a gum chewer!
Gardening: Nostephot enjoys to garden and grows all kinds of herbs and fruits, I garden but not with edible things just flowers and plants!
The jar of bayleaves she grew, who knew they are so perfect in shape and color and yes smell like bay leaves! Nostephot also sent a container of Lemon Lavender Bath Salts. The smell of the box was wonderful as there was a slight leakage. The only thing that got wet was the pink bag so I think it my have happened when the postal lady left the box sitting on it's side at my front door, most of the liquid is still contained in the bag.
There are note cards of nostephot's favorite movie, and a New Orleans Saint Magnet, Me I am a Texans fan but football is a common!
Next up is an adorable mustache necklace and ring an obsession with nostephot. Are these made using shrink dink?
I love the silver chain and know I will get rave reviews from my co-workers!
Too funny, as I was opening my prezzies I was watching reruns of the big bang theory, my favorite show and came upon these super cute magnets of all the characters. Happens that nostephot has the same favorite show!!!! So cool! Just look at the fabric she sused on the sewn pouch!
Although Halloween is her favorite Holiday, Mine too she especially loves Mardi Gras! Just look at the light up ring, doubloons and glass beads!
Another similarity is our passion for old things, estate sells, and sewing! Nostephot loves buttons and zipper probably as much as I do!!!!
She was generous to send me some of her treasures that she found!
These bits of fabric helped pad my goodies, and I am a fabric whore!
This cute little zippered pouch she made from linen a favorite fabric to wear and inside where two items that she got free couponing. I love carmex and only wear eyeliner and mascara so both are bonuses for me. I also am forever needing zippered pouches and this one is the perfect size and black is one of my favorite colors! Win Win!!!! I too love to coupon!!!!!!
Sentimental: This was such a special gift. Nostephot celebrated a special birthday this month and her boyfriend threw her an amazing party! Nostephot sent me a candle holder and her colors that she used to decorate with which is the blocks of yellow and gray prints sewn together My kitchen is pale yellow and aqua so this candle holder will find a special place on my kitchen windowsill over the sink!
Wow what an amazing package and so much information about my new friend!!!!
