A Lovely Package

My dear friend Marie recently spoiled me with a package full of beautiful gifts. I love fabric hearts and Marie created not one but two gorgeous hearts for my collection. She also sent me a fabulous soldered Paris tag as well as white buttons, ribbons and a vintage linen dishtowel.



Marie knows how much I love numbers and always watches out on flea markets or in stores for numbered items, she can make me happy with. This time she sent me some flash cards, a ceramic container and used number tags to embellish the packages. Marie has an adorable style to wrap packages. I was just too exited to wait for the perfect light to take pictures of the wrapped gifts. As you can see in the pictures, I used the wrappings as props though, after I had stuffed them with paper.

Flash Cards

Don’t ask me why I have a thing for darning mushrooms. When Marie spotted one at the flea, she immediately thought of me and bought it.

The Eiffel Tower tag with the “C’est la vie” charm came in a special tag envelope. So pretty! The lovely large plastic Paris tote was a gift from Marie as well. If you don’t know Marie yet, please visit her beautiful blog Lost Bird Studio.

Thank you so much for all the wonderful gifts, dear Marie! You know how much I love everything.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Her two hearts are so beautifully made.
The Paris soldered pendant is gorgeous and so too the mushroom, flash cards, tote, tag and all the numbers.
Enjoy each piece sweetie and have a wonderful Sunday,

They are all such thoughtful gifts from Marie. Each one all the more special because they have been made with you in mind. I saw the gifts you made for her, the wrapping and individual pieces are all so gorgeous. She will be the most envied gardener. The needle case will be so treasured and used every day I am sure. I was given a needle case by my friend Gill and I wonder how I managed without it. Jayne x
