Dear Debby over at Cozy Blanket put together a Christmas box/jar swap back in October. I was lucky enough to be paired up with Sarah from over at Hyacinths For The Soul for my first venture into "swapping". I say lucky because Sarah, too, is a fan of Mary Engelbriet AND she loves MacKenzie-Childs stuff as much as I do. We have shared many emails back and forth during this adventure and I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to get to know more about her. This week we exchanged our boxes that we both decided were created "with heart".
Of course, I gasped as I opened the box and then went hunting for my camera. THIS had to be documented so I could share it with you.
The out of the box "Beauty Shot". Would you look at all those Cherry fabrics and that cute red/white check ruffle around the box! She has even finished off the interior edges of the fabric. Amazing!
Sarah made darling little tags for the top of the darling big box.
The lid comes off and the first layer is revealed.....
Sarah's sweet note inside with her fabulous penmanship......
More of layer one revealed...a darling little ME gift box, a cute kitty dish, and a charming checkerboard Santa box.
Inside the checkerboard Santa box are sour Cherry candies and Oh my those little suckers did make my mouth pucker. :-)
The bottom layer of the sweet box reveals some ME cookie cutters, a cute little Cherry zippered bag, a Cherry magnetic shopping list, a heart shaped tea infuser, and last but not least a heart shaped bottle stopper.
I can tell that every inch of this beautiful box was created with "heart". Everytime I look at it I will think of how sweet Sarah was to make and share it with me. What a wonderful first experience with a swap. Unmeasurable Thank You's go out to Sarah.´*•.¸(´*•.¸♥¸.•*´)¸.•*´
