Okay, I’m back to share the fabulous soup that Lori sent to me. But where to start? It arrived beautifully packaged.
How sweet is this wee baggie? Love the vintage button particularly (of course!) There was yet more pleasing packaging inside this.
Both of these boxes arrived with beautiful bows, but I’d already stuck my eager, greedy beak inside the dark one before I remembered I was supposed to be taking pictures. Now for the wonders inside. I’m crazy about these.
The large ones are from Jane Perala and they’re fab. I’m glad I got them as part of this soup because if I’d got them any other way I’d be sure to hoard them for forever. Lori can’t remember who made the little lampies but they’re very nice too. And guess what? These aren’t even the focal(s). Look –
Apparently Lori has been hoarding these for some time. How kind?! They’re Thai Hill Tribe silver (99%), which I’ve never used before. The smaller butterfly is a clasp. I have a bit of an idea brewing for these. Hope I can make it work! I don’t tend to use bright silver very often so that’s going to be a new thing to think on. And while we’re talking silver…
Lori also included these dinky sterling lantern-ish spacers. So much silver! The large twists are pewter, as are the little rings. I’ve got a bit a plan for those too. There’s more:
I love these big coin pearls! And a bit of a coincidence: the faux sea glass looks very similar to the recycled glass that I sent to Lori. I do like its frostiness! And finally, I’d mentioned to Lori that I love czech glass…
See how the bag was neatly matched to what was inside! Here’s everything together:
Didn’t I do well?! To see what I sent to Lori head here.
Obviously, I can’t begin to say a big enough ‘thank you’ to Lori, but
THANK YOU, LORI !!!!!!!!!
