Gifts from the heart

on etsy
My lovely friend Kim sent Halloween to Australia for the second year. Do you see the candy corn socks and ribbon? My first candy corn experience, in 2006, was bliss. Love the button and trim, ummm... but I might have enough spiders :) . Kim and I are doing a special swap at the moment - I am looking forward to sharing the results.
Nikki blew me away with the time that went into this Box of Chocolates; each of the little books has quotes about chocolate, for example: Man can not live on chocolate alone; but woman sure can.
The guarantee on the back cracked me up: All chocolates are guaranteed to give hours of amusement and are 100% calorie free. Enjoy as often as required. Please store in a cool dry place away from Clever but Cute Cavalier Spaniels and Aiding and Abetting Cats. Containers no Macadamia Nuts (cos a nut takes up space where a chocolate should be). Just precious.
This classy box came from my friend Kylie and now is home to my 'business cards' - yep, you heard right. I am often asked when wearing my jewellery if I have 'a card', so I made some and try to remember to have one in my purse. Makes me feel like a bit of a Diva.
This box came from the talented Carmel. At the moment it has some of my favourite metal buttons in it. Not sure if that will be its 'forever job'.

I love the new necklace. I was at a bead Expo yesterday, and I wore the necklace I purchased from you. I got a lot of compliments!! I love wearing something that nobody else has.
Well of course you should carry your cards, if I'd meet you on the street and see your jewelry, I'd also ask for your card.
You're getting lots of mail goodies. Good for you!! Have a great week.

Nikki has a great sense of humor. I agree with her about the chocolate thing :)

The box from Kylie is stunning as is the one from talented Carmel. You deserve to have yoru mail box full of art and love every day.
