the lovely package exchange

Well, my package went and one came, and here's what went down.

My swap partner told me she liked reading, photography, vintage, animals, and cooking. So I got her a little something from each of these categories.

As for the packaging, I opted for classic brown paper with pretty embellishments.

I made the flower using cut out fabric circles and burnt the edges. I made a pom-pom center using embroidery thread. 

For gift tags this year, I had Josh cut up a branch so that they could double as ornaments.

My package came simply and beautifully wrapped. I almost didn't want to open it.

It came in a super fun vintage box.

Inside was a ceramic farmer's market crate from anthro I'd been eyeing. How did she know?!

Under the fabric and ornament was vintage thread spools!

Needless to say, it was a successful swap and fun to send a gift to someone across the country!

p.s. The shop is open again with new items on sale and LOTS of new items coming soon!
