Several of you sent cute Christmas gifts. I want to mention three.
The first friend is Jessica, whose blog Chronically Vintage is a must-read. In addition to vintage-y tree ornaments, Jessica sent me the coolest book -- a photographic history of women motorcycle-riders. I'm swallowing it up in big bites. Here are some pics of the ornaments and book...
Next is Ashley, my friend in Minnesota. You may remember I recently mentioned Ashley's new online stationery store Moonstone Paperie which carries products that Ashley designed herself. Many have a beautiful image of a moose on them. (I got a coffee mug and notepads with that image.)
For Christmas, in addition to some fab notecards with a motorcycle on them, Ashley sent me a metal moose silhouette that works as a chalkboard. I tested that out by writing my name on it, as you can see...
My last mention is Emma who not only sent me a big box of beauty products, she handwrote a lengthy guide to using them. She encouraged me to have a "spa day" in my home and that's just what I'm gonna do. Wheee!!
Friends make life better. My friends give me confidence. Thanks, everyone!
These are def super sweet gifts <3ReplyDelete

This is wonderful and so thoughtful of them! They truly chose well.ReplyDelete
Christmas has become so commercialised, for myself it is about seeing friends who i do not normally see. It is hard to organise times but for some reason christmas just works :). Love the picsReplyDelete
have a lovely New Year to you and all your family and friends

Don't you just love blogging for the sole reason of making fabulous friends? What great gifts...well deserved!ReplyDelete
Great gifts! Love the motorcycle book in particular! I'm glad I went with what I did--I was going to go the make-up/beauty product route with tutorials, so you would have had quite the stash on hand!ReplyDelete
