Canadian Blossoms

 Once upon a time...

Fairy godmothers, Jemina the Fair  and  Lovely Lynzy picked 15 lucky girls from all over the world to exchange some fashionable gifts. They called it a care package swap.

The theme was floral.

Bella hadn't a clue as to what to expect, and she waited...



Then one day, a day a little more maple-y than others, she got a package in the mail. From Canada. In it was a beautiful box that contained a lovely note and some hand-made blossoms crafted by Carissa McCraig of Copious Couture. She found a cream colored chiffon headband, and two floral fabric pins. Canadian Blossoms.


 
The handwritten note was short & sweet: 

Bella likes her Canadian blossoms. 
And she had just the dress to wear them.                                           
                                                               < The End  >

Now Wearing: 
  • Copious Couture Chiffon Blossom headband
  • Carol Anderson, vintage floral cotton dress, thrifted
  • Copious Couture, crimson & purple fabric floral pin
  • Copious Couture, green rosette pin
  • Vintage Floral Travel case, thrifted 
  • Coach black wedges

Thank you, dearies!
@ Sacramento: And I thought I had another Spanish follower, lol.
@ Sonia: I do love Laura Ashley, but the dress is by Carol Anderson, who also did a plethora of cotton floral prints in the '80's. In fact, I now have about 5 pieces, quite a sweet collection!

What a cute idea!

I love the idea of having a pen pal. It's kind of like blogging on a more intimate level. I like that blogging allows me to have friends all over the world, but it's a bit impersonal and it's hard to connect to people on a one-to-one level in a blog post. If only I were better about snail mail things!

That's such a cool idea, what a gorgeous rosette.
Love your dress & travel case :)
