Don't you just love it when you arrive home to find a package in the mailbox or on your front porch?? Dear Jackie over at Empty Nest Full Life surprised me with just that this week. She and I had been corresponding about a table she was decorating for a ladies event and she sent me these as a thank you! I am ever so grateful for her friendship. The beauty of blogging is that I've met such talented and kind women such as Jackie.
Also included in the box was a packet of mulling spices which I plan on using this holiday season; what a heavenly smell to make Chateau Gahan feel even more Christmasy! The pink buttons are chocolate; she used a standard candy mold and then when the candies hardened she used a warm skewer to create the button holes. And she made the pincushion; just look how lovely its underside is in a different fabric!
Thank you to Jackie! And do stop by her blog for a visit.
