The Most Beautiful Package EVER!!

I meant to blog about this yesterday... I bought some lace & ribbons from someone on etsy last week ~ and I received it yesterday - and it was such a huge surprise. Sometimes we buy things & just are excited to get it ~ and we open it, it's as expected - and sometime people just go beyond our expectations... that's the way it was with this package.

Everything was wrapped in little plastic bags with vintage bookkeeping pages at the top & tied with a sweet pink ribbon - and every little bag was put inside a linen bag that was recycled. When I opened the bag of goodies, I took out each little bag, one by one - and just laid it all out. Thinking, someone took a lot of time and packed each of these pieces - it was just a wonderful, unexpected surprise. I felt so inspired to make something with all this - not sure what yet - but I just wanted Noel, from Red Stripe Vintage to know how she MADE MY DAY!!

My favorite piece was a PINK horse show ribbon. I used to ride western when I lived in Virginia, just north of Richmond on a small farm there. I was about 12. I had a few ribbons, but I have no idea where those horse ribbons are now - but I can assure you, none were pink... The funny thing was, the rhinestone pin, which is gorgeous ~ I didn't even remember being in there - so that was an exciting surprise too!
