Squeeze, Sniff, Shake

Several weeks ago, I was the lucky winner of a giveaway hosted by Joanie at Nini Makes.  Well, two days ago the above package and pretty little bundle below arrived.  I apologize for the lighting.  They aren't the best photos, especially the one below but I received the package in the evening and wasn't able to open it until later that same night.  I guess I could have waited until the next day when I had better light.  No, I couldn't wait.  You know the person who sites beside the Christmas tree and shaes, squeezes and sniffs the presents?  That's me.  So to wait 12 hours when I wasn't forced by tradition  to wait was not going to happen.

Wrapped in the brown paper was a lavender filled sachet.  I love the colour combination, the fabrics, the scent, and each little stitch of Joanie's.  Enough words.  I'm just going to show you some photos of the little piece of art that now hangs from one of our doorknobs.

Pretty, huh?

And the surprise in that little bundle?  Some vintage crochet thread Joanie had found recently.

I think I see another crochet covered stone on the horizon.
