TODAY IS THE DAY!
The day so many of us have been waiting for!
The day when all of us
rosette addicts show off
our special treasures we have received
from our partners!
I received my package on
August 18th, right on time.
Earlier that day my daughter
called me at work
and let me know that a package
had arrived for me!
I nearly SCREAMED with excitement!
(I'm sure my co-workers are grateful that I did not!)
I could hardly wait to get home!
And when I arrived,
there it sat...
a small package...
(and you KNOW what they say about small packages!)
...just for me
from my Rosette Swap friend!
I slowly opened the package so that
I could savor every moment!
There was a sweet card inside
from Sylvia of My Trinkets.
As I read it my heart began to beat even quicker
at the mention of
"RE-PURPOSED VINTAGE EARRINGS!"
Next, I pulled out of the package
a little bundle wrapped in tissue paper.
I opened it slowly....
to find this treasure box!
Just look at the intricate detailed carving
and the beautiful metal accents!
The surface is so smooth!
I just sat there, running my fingers
over the engraving,
and wondering what treasures awaited!
and when I lifted it up out of the box,
My daughter gasped!
"OH, WHAT IS IT?!?!"
I tried them on immediately,
and fell in love!
I've worn them twice already,
and have gotten numerous compliments!
Many have asked if I made them...
and I just smile, and say,
"No, my friend, Sylvia in Florida, made them for me!"
Thank you, Sylvia!
From the bottom of my heart!
