Don't you just love the package? This is one of two (!) boxes that I received from my swap partner, Joanna. When I first saw the post about the Mermaid's Trousseau that Bryanna was hosting, I was intrigued. But also apprehensive as I had never participated in this kind of a swap before. Bryanna assured me that I would be fine, so I signed up. The idea behind it was things you think a mermaid would have in her trousseau.
An amazing bottle
The bottle and star fish in their new home.
Then, yesterday, the second box arrived. It had the same wonderful packing label (which I cut off and saved for who knows what!) and was filled with more great stuff. I love the shell 'ribbon.'
A beautiful fish pin, swimming in aqua tulle.
This lovely mirror, with a pretty pink sea star and a sand dollar.
This is the back side of the mirror. So now I do not know which side to display. I guess I'll have to change it weekly.
A magic wand!
The back side of the wand. Again, which side to show?
Coral candle holders.
There were various other things in my trousseau. too. I just have to thank Joanna, again, for such lovely gifts. I had a great time thinking of things to include in her box, as well. She will do a post one of these days so you can see what she got.
And for a sneak preview, below are two pictures of the mermaid I made for her. I figured a mermaid's trousseau needed an actual mermaid.
