I received a really special package the other day on the same day I tried to send a special one out. I'd call that the kind of reciprocity that only happens in dreams. I took part in the wonderful Nadia's (from La Porte Rouge) summertime swap and sent mine out on the same day I received this beautiful little banner from Marichelle from Heart Handmade. Marichelle and I had our own little swap going and all I did was fix a little necklace for her and she sent this. She even embroidered "bonbon oiseau" along the little flags. A spectacular handmade object, I haven't loved a thing so much in a long time. Thank you M.
My package pales in comparison but it was inspired by the recipient and a little package of pink Papabubble candies I found in Soho and some Moroccan dried roses I brought home with me in March. Oh and there's some music in there too, (Nadia requested we send music and I did...I made some stuff to get sentimental to.) Even more exciting? I'm still expecting another little fantastic package from whoever got me in the swap! Come on...who got me?!
Tonight is the Fall Preview--it's been raining, Pacific Northwest style, for the past 5 hours. I still hope you can come!
