White Tissue Paper and Pink Ribbon

Susanne had a giveaway a few weeks ago and I won! Today a parcel landed in my mailbox. I was patient and took photos before opening the packages. Everything is so prettily wrapped. I thought about just waiting and enjoying the packages as is, but that thought soon dissolved.

Isn't this button bouquet sweet? 

A journal to record lovely thoughts, an ingenious use of an old book spine - as a bookmark, a blue and white teacup, blue hydrangeas, and what could be wrapped in that handkerchief?

This necklace! I love the old key surrounded by charms. Old keys remind me of my grandparents' home on the farm. I don't actually know what kind of key opened the house, but this key seems like something that would fit there.

And all those dainty birds. Each one has a separate wing glued on. I love almost anything made from old book paper, and these fill me with delight.

Susanne has an Etsy shop as well as a blog, where she sells vintage and vintage inspired bits and pieces. 

Thank you, Susanne.


  1. How wonderful, they are all so pretty. The necklace is fabulous. Congratulations on your win:)

    And gifts inside... what a treat for the eyes.

  4. Susanne definitely knows how to present gifts...such sweet attention to detail. I, too, love your necklace. It's beautifully vintage...well, I think everything is very nice and clever, too.
