Cry for pie! Key Lime Pie!!!
~~~~~Showing Off Looovely Presents~~~~
1) Assortment of tasty tea (I love that it's called "Stash.")
So far I have only tried the Black Chai and the Orange Spice, but I'm looking forward to trying Ginger Peach. Yum!
2) Key Lime Pie
(This was all I really wanted!)
3) Handmade Necklace 1
This necklace means so much to me. My SIL Heather, upon gifting it, began sort of apologetically, "I don't know if you wear gaudy stuff..."and I tried to shush her (because I love gaudy stuff) but she went on with, "but there's a picture of Vyvyan inside, I pressed the flowers in the front, and I blessed it."
Needless to say, I completely love it to bits. Vyvyan loves it too. I put it on and he points at it and says, "Vyvyan watering flowers." ^_^
4) Fairy House
My brother is really into horticulture and when I shared with him that I wanted a little fairy garden, he secretly put this together! Apologies for the terrible picture, but there is a little path, and a mushroom statue for my fairies to sit on. It's so cute, and I loved that he set it up outside and left scavenger clues around the house for me to find it!
5) Handmade Necklace 2
Don't I have some talented SIL's? Tiffany made this one, and she actually showed me her whole necklace collection and I got to pick my favorite. There were some true beauties. (I would love to take this opportunity to direct you to her Etsy shop but she doesn't have one.) I think this one suited my personality the best, and the little bead at the end reminded me of a turtle shell. The whole thing is just very earthy and yet simple, and it's light and comfortable to wear.
I don't know how it happened, but a few years ago I made a wish (telling NOBODY) that I had more jewelry, especially jewelry that had meaning behind it. I had looked in my jewelry box and noticed that all my necklaces and earrings came from lame little mall shops and I had bought them all for myself. I feel blessed that since then I have acquired not only gifted jewelry but hand-made jewelry.
So much happy!!
I love both of the necklaces so much that today I tried to wear them both at the same time.
It was technically do-able, but I guess I'll be traditional and wear them one at a time. Since I only have one neck and all.... Oh and I guess I already showed you, but let's have some better lighting...
6) New Hair!!
|Ignore my "Did it take the picture yet?" face ;)|
It's incredibly temporary, but I have wanted blue hair all of my life and now I feel just like a mermaid. When it runs out (It only lasts 5-40 washes, with my luck closer to 5) I have a few other colors to pick from. I think purple is next. And before you ask, yes I had to bleach the daylights out of it. 2 boxes, and it still wasn't "blonde."
7) Goodies from JoAnne's
I went for buttons, but I ended up getting a few little treats for myself as well ;)
|I bough Sheep(ish) for swatching for this adorable pea-coat.|
Also I may have bought something online. That may be coming in the mail. ;)
All in all I had such a wonderful beautiful day- at the mall I ran into a few knitters, which really cheered me up!
I even had an hour or so this morning to myself to lose myself in a novel! I hope you all had a lovely June 14 as well ;)
