ebi Huntsman of lifeinmystudio.com who completely spoiled me. When I saw how pretty the outside looked, I knew I would slowly and carefully enjoy every minute of opening it because I had a feeling I was in for a real treat! check out all the lovely details in my package.
Upon opening the box, I found this lovely tag laying there, and I got more excited
I peeled back the tissue paper and found this. . . .
and inside was this lovely long chained necklace
Oh, she knows what I like!
and there was also this, and inside it was this crazy wonderful stamp set from Technique Tuesday. Yes!
Well, so far I was elated, and I thought there is still the matchbox filled up with goodies. So I peeled back
another layer of tissue paper to reveal this. . . .
It looked rather long for a matchbox length. I love the brown paper and the vintage lace and mini fan and flowers make the package. . . .
It is absolute breathtaking and regal up on this pedestal. I was swooning big time!
You must see more views of it!
The glass knob acts a drawer pull when it lays down. Are you swooning yet?
the whole thing so stunningly decorated. Every detail is amazing, even down to the crackle paint on the bottom. Isn't this just so creative?
And I have not even gotten to the inside of the box yet. I pulled it out and folded back the ecru crepe paper and this beautiful vintage lace was laying on top, and upon removal of the tied up lace there was
this scene. . . . .baubles and bangles and tiny frames with vintage buttons. and a lovely vintage crystal chandelier drop. She couldn't have sent me a box any more perfect for me than this one. Debi is so talented! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I go back and take a look at it all, over and over and drool each time!
WOW, I GOT SPOILED! Debi was dead on with this special matchbox for me.
I will show the box I did up for my partner soon, but it is in route to her still, and I don't want to spoil the surprise, so that will be the next post.
YEP, IT WAS THE PERFECT DAY!
