Last month I asked Misi from 1890 Gable House if she'd make my best gal Holly one of her beautiful boxes for her birthday (which was March 13th). Since Misi loves my stitches we decided to do a swap... which is always fun to do. Misi always....and I mean always blows my mind with her talent. I told her I was flabbergasted by what she sent this time...actually every time we swap I have the same reaction...LOL. :0) Anyway... I want to show you gals all the goodies she sent...and I want to say a BIG THANK YOU TO MISI!!!!
Just look at those boxes and all those other treasures.
Doesn't your heart skip a beat.....
It was very hard for me to part with this beautiful Mirror box...but I knew that it was going to a home where it would be cherished and loved. This was the box I gave Holly for her birthday. I wish I had taken my camera with me because she was in love with it as soon as she saw it. Plus she loved the mirror and saying that Misi enclosed inside.
Spring A New- Is what Misi called this box. I absolutely adore it and it's perfect for my studio with all it's Halloween treasures. When Holly saw photos of it she wanted this one too...LOL. :0) Can you see the little bird basket ornament Misi made.... isn't it sweet. I love the birds nest with the beautiful waxed eggs....such a treasure. I have been collecting nests for a few years now....they're still in the garage... one day I'll find the perfect way of displaying them all.
Seance Box... perfect for any Halloween lover...LOL...and right up my alley. This is the inside of the blue/black/cream floral box and what was inside when I opened it. I'm smitten with the box with the little shoe.
Some yummy chocolates along with this wonderful fabric box Misi made. The velveteen rabbit she sent was made by Michi Ball....all I can say is he's one of my new favorite Easter decorations.
Some of these goodies have found their new spots in the house already but some of them sit on our table still... mostly because I've been so tired and busy. I must say it's nice that they're on our table though because I've been able to pick each lovely item up and admire it every day since I received them.
A quick little pic of the dining room buffet (just a small part of it)...that is always changing with the seasons. Again I want to say a big thank you to Misi for not only my new treasures but for making my best friends birthday a special one too.
Here is just a sampling of what I sent Misi....keepsake box...
Last I wanted to share the newest picture of my sweet niece Rosalie...isn't she sweet and growing fast. She is now three weeks four days old. I can't wait to hold her. :0)
Well my sweet friends that is all for now... I hope to be adding some things to my Etsy shop soon. I've been trying hard to get new things done...it's been way to long since I last put something in my shop. I also hope to finish my last "PIF" for my sweet friend Wendy....everyone else should be getting theirs soon.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are all happy and healthy.
