I'm finally starting to feel more Christmas spirit. Could it be that I'm hours away from a 12 day vacation from work? Hmmm . . . that sure is a big part I bet. It's also so fun to see people on the subway toting in packages for their work friends and employees. I think I need a peppermint mocha to really push me over the holiday edge, don't you? Good thing there's a Starbucks in my building, across the street and 1 block away huh?? ;)
So as promised here is the GORGEOUS ribbon brooch Heidi sent me:
Isn't it perfect?!? She learned to make them in a class at Silver Bella. I love the colors, the sparkle, the sweet velvet ribbon, everything! I told her that I was going to run out and get one of the wonderful $5 "silk pashminas"* you can buy on the street in NYC to match.
Aren't I fancy now?? :) Included in my package was also a gift certificate to the Savers. The thrift store has gift certificates! I'm so excited to go and can't wait to show you what I find. I think as with all gift certificates one must splurge a bit.
Heidi, thank you so so much for both the lovely gift and for being such a fabulous friend!
And to all of you, who make me smile with your comments, your blogs, your creations and your wit, have a wonderful holiday! I'll be off to Charm City for a while but will definitely be online checking to see how everyone spent their Christmas and New Years.
Here's to Peace on Earth . . .
with love ~ Rebecca
* - If you get t0 NYC and see the $5 pashminas I promise you it's $5 well spent. While we all know they are far from silk they are soft and pretty and come in every color you can imagine. I have quite a few and wash them in the washer. If anyone would like one please let me know and we can swap for it in 2008!
