I'll share my gift to Cristina in another post, but for now here are some details of the amazing surprise I received. Lets start with the wrapping, which was beautifully done, tissue paper tied with blue string and garnished with feathers, mixed with origami boxes and envelopes. Having had a look at Cristina's website and blog (she takes the most beautiful still life photographs) I was really hoping she would include one of her prints so was over the moon to open six, which will look great in our bedroom. The whole box matched my love for florals and feathers perfectly, fabric pieces, buttons, washi tape, cute little felt chicks as well as a mini recipe book and clever origami bookmarks she'd made herself. I even did a little squeal on un-wrapping the floral cushion cover, which is just gorgeous and I had a spare cushion pad in my cupboard so it is already in use!
I really hope Cristina likes her gifts as much as I liked mine. It's been so fun taking part and seeing all the other swaps taking place on #springtimesurpriseproject - definitely a perfect way to celebrate the start of spring.
