Just one week ago while visiting one of my favorite blogs Shabby Scraps, I read Tiffany's enjoyable post Shabby Scraps Shame. Scrolling down I saw a small bottle filled with glitter, beads and a small pink bottle brush tree; its cork cap covered in glass glitter; the bottle tied with a pink satin ribbon with letters spelling out wish. I GASPed. I’d never seen anything like it and immediately emailed to see if it was for sale. It was!
Feeling guilty about buying myself a treat during the holiday season I got up the nerve to ask Tiffany (Shabby Scraps Boutique) if she would be interested in a swap, and if she wasn’t I would put the bottle on my Christmas list. I was thrilled when Tiffany agreed and even more excited just days later when my package arrived. Thank you, Tiffany for all of the wonderful treats! Everything was packaged so beautifully. I had to take lots of photos to share ...
Tiffany sent many surprise treats all tied with ribbons and garland. Look at the card she made!
As adults we don't often get surprised with a box full of sparkly treats. How much fun to find all of this. I began to "play" immediately ...
I tied the letters to some twine and displayed my card. I love how the roughness of twine can offset things from getting too-too girly (in my home).
Why yes, that is another Bonne Maman jar filled with candy canes (beside a Vlasic pickle jar!).
I tied ribbon to the snowflake and hung it up to add a little sparkle.
And of course the beautiful jar. So seemingly simple yet so creative, inspired and special. Thank you so much Tiffany. I will treasure all of this always! (I hope you receive your package soon!) xo
