i owe lori an apology

do you know my lovely friend lori? in addition to being an amazing artist, sparkling wit, and engaging blogger, it is my belief that she has the best avatar on t'internet!

lori's blog is called faerie window...and it's full of beauty, charm and inspiration! she has an etsy shop, too, (also called faerie window--what are the odds?!) which is full of lucious, handmade, totally original, vintage-inspired goodies. i ordered a few items late last week and they had already arrived on tuesday...and this is the first i am mentioning it! lori, i apologize! your lovely creations deserved better attention than i gave them, but i promise it was only due to a seriously overloaded week!

so what did i get? well, i fell in love with this little bunny box: could i NOT??! lori made these as easter favors, but i plan to use mine to hold nephew matthew's christening gift. (which, like all my christening gifts, will be a savings bond; yes i know it's dull, but it's *so* practical. babies become teens REALLY quickly you know...and teens tend to want things like snowboards & i-pods & cars...and savings bonds painlessly double their value before that happens. i rest my case!)

then i saw this little darling:

..and i decided matthew's auntie (yeah, that'd be me!) needed a little something as well. this is called a "faerie-go-round" and believe it or not is at least twice as cute in real life as it looks here. (yes, i know that seems impossible, but you're going to have to trust me!)

needless to say everything arrived beautifully packaged and tied with fancy ribbons. there was a sweet note from lori, and some very appealing handmade tags as a little bonus. so if you're needing a little pick-me-up, i can highly recommend the view through the faerie window!


  1. Once again...amazing presentation for gift giving! You are an AWESOME aunt!

    Congratulations on your new car :) I hope you will post another pick of your new "baby". Did you name her/him yet?

    I mentioned in an earlier comment my first car was a used Toyota Corolla SR5. I called him "S.R." and decided it was short for "spoiled rotten".

  2. If you wish to play, I tagged you:

  3. Don't you love when you buy something online and it turns out even better than you imagined ... love both of these and so glad they found a great home.
