Today I went to my first break-up of the season, that of my 'bijou' quilt group, Paddington Quilters. Not only are these girls deft with a needle, talented designers, great encouragers, warm carers, generous sharers, and a wonderful way to begin a week, but they are some of the most creative gift-wrappers around.
In the Kris Kringle I chose Charlyn's gorgeously-wrapped gift, but was so excited that I completely forgot to photograph it closely before I opened it.
Hers is that puff of clear cellophane glistening invitingly in the background of the photo above. Charlyn added a tiny bit of opulence - a sprinkling of palest flesh-pink petals from her "Pierre de Ronsard" rose bush, nestling in the folds of the cellophane - delicious!!!
And just look what was inside...
This exquisite little pump-pack not only contains enough delicately scented body lotion to take me through the summer and beyond, but will look fabulous in my 'boudoir'.
