well today we received a surprise wedding gift in the mail from christine that i knew was coming but just didn't know when it was coming (nor did i know what it was!)
and here's what we received...
|look at the pretty packaging!|
|and more pretty packaging!|
now if anyone knows me, you know that although i live in california, i am still a new england yankee at heart. i love mason jars not just because they're really pretty to look at, but because i grew up canning jams and pickles with my grandmother and family and they hold a sentimental value to me. i call "yard or garage sales" "tag sales". i know how to go clamming (which means you dig in the mud for clams during low tide). i love the beach - during summer or winter - and weathered old houses on the shoreline. what on earth does that have to do with this gift? it's rustic, it's weathered, it's detailed, it's lovely and it's just so us. it's like a small piece of new england to hang in our california home and it is such a special way to showcase our wedding date.
i just had to share this with you because i loved it so much and i was thinking it would make a perfect gift for the newlyweds/anniversary or new parents (baby's birthday?) on your list too. if you want to look in to creating one, you can check them out at frame the date!
thank you christine!!!! xoxo
