I decided to join the Cold Hands Warm Hearts gloves-swap hosted by the two lovely ladies, Ilene of much love, illy, and Sandy of Sandy a la Mode. They paired me (random) with another lovely blogger Megan of Flawed Perfection Jewelry who has been just so lovely and sweet through this experience.
First of all, I want to say that I had the biggest smile when I opened the box - everything was wrapped up so neatly in pretty tissue and enclosed with a small sticker. Aw shucks, the packaging effort Megan! *score* :o)
When I first opened the gloves and saw the flip-top style she had gotten for me, I was so happy because I have been meaning to try a pair out but never got the time to actually go and purchase a pair. This was perfect!
She also added a lovely handwritten message on a letterpress card - so sweet! I think I just wrote something on a sticker.
And I was thinking that she will probably send jewelry (being a jewelry designer and seller et al) and sure enough - a truly cute pair of earrings! Although I do not have pierced ears, I know at least 10 people who would love those earrings from Santa Grace this year. (Oops and sorry Megan, I should have mentioned that beforehand. *sheepish*)
And last but not least, she knew that I liked chocolate so she sent on a bar of Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark chocolate! Perfectly-chocolatey-perfectly-holiday-ish! Do you feel the love? I certainly felt the love.
Thanks so much Megan for putting this together for me and I hope you liked your package. I was waiting to write this post before wearing the gloves but I thought it would be appropriate to at least don it while writing this post.
(I think it might interest you to know that because of the flip top, I can still type while wearing gloves. Yay!)
