Looky what Robyn made me for my birthday. You don't suppose it had to do with the subtle hints I was dropping, do you? These delicate handcut birds were waiting to surprise me, tucked inside these gorgeous books:
Have you been lusting after these Penguin Classics like I have? I'm so happy to have these. Sigh. And now I have my own Cranford!
Also included in my pretty packages were these tiny things:
Little handmade soapstone boxes from Brazil. They are so small, and you know how tiny things make me happy. Just large enough to house some mini treasure. I should have put an acorn in the photo for scale. No lack of those in the studio. The smallest box is an inch and three quarters wide.
And something pretty to wear:
A handmade necklace from Brazil. I should be able to tell you the kind of nuts those large green ones are, but I forgot. All I really need to know is that it includes my favorite colors. Plus she sent some stroopwaffels and said I didn't have to share them. And I didn't. (If you don't know about stroopwaffels, that is just fine. More for me.)
And it all came beautifully wrapped in these packages. The wrapping is always a gift in itself. I really hated to open them.
Robyn, I love those fern stickers. Lovely, lovely. In conclusion, you are awesome. But you surely knew that.
