What, what, whaaaat? Last night, out of the blinding blue, this package arrived.
With that wrapping, who else could have sent it but Aunt Peaches?
Don't know what I did to deserve it, but I am strongly of the opinion that said Aunt Peaches has some kind of magical spider sense about things that are needed to make the world a better place.
Example: her cool little project called I Believe In Strangers. It's a mere wisp of a blog, intentionally so - and it is an antidote to pretty much anything that is bothering you about this bad old world.
She also organizes a gigantic valentine swaps. Just for fun and karma. I could not join in this year and felt bad...sad...even guilty...and see what happened? I think she sensed something going on with me. (It has been a pretty rough month.)
She even sent jewelry and chocolate.
If you saw her tutorial for making these jambalaya heart boxes, you might have wondered, "Hmm, are those as pretty in person as they were on her blog?" (Because she's awfully talented with a camera and maybe she did some tweaking?)
I am here to attest, they are even prettier in person. And unexpectedly substantial. Love that! It feels super luxe and expensive, and it's made of free stuff. Also, the non-valentiney colors make it a heart box for storage and decor all year round. To make your own, click right here.
Um, thank you, Peaches.
