There’s nothing better than a good assistant/friend!!!!! Mari amazes and inspires me on a daily basis. She is the ultimate upcycler and has been ever since I’ve known her. Her creativity shouts outloud from the clothes she wears, to her home and her gifts. I’ve often told her that she needs to set up photo shoots or start her own magazine.
The Christmas gift she gave me is so beautiful I don’t want to take it apart. I used it as a decoration. I just had to share it with you. It was filled with surprises.
The vintage card already had writing from many years ago which just added to the charm. The wire basket was quite possibly from an old locker. Mari included many fabrics and trinkets that I can use in my new refashioning hobby. You’ll be seeing some of these soon. Then of course, the clove studded oranges added to the vintage feel of the gift and smelled heavenly! The one thing I did take out of the basket was the frother and used it everyday in my coffee. (And perhaps a little of the Bailey’s) 🙂
Thank you Mari! I love you!
