My Lucky Day

It was my lucky day when I received an email announcing that I had won a blog giveaway from Reloved Designs.
Yesterday my prize arrived in the mail!

With a sweet most Etsy sellers politely include.

The packaging was very thoughtful and personal... like opening a gift. This is typical of most Etsy sellers. When you receive handmade, you can feel all the love and care that goes into each personally- made product. It is so refreshing.

Imagine my surprise, as I had already been admiring the look and feel of the tiny package, when I discovered the box, too, was handmade...from a re-cycled Chex cereal box. I love it! prize! This is a handmade pistachio shell flower brooch! Thank you Reloved...Unique Handmade Treasures from the Creator's heart to mine!

Check out Reloved's blog...a behind the scenes look at how she makes these pieces.


  1. That is beautiful. And this post reminds me I need to photograph and blog about my oh so lovely prayer/sermon notes notebook I purchased from a certain Etsy seller! :) (which I ***love*** and am stalking your store to see if you ever make more because they are a PERFECT gift)

  2. I have to say, when we received our beautiful print from your etsy site, it was beautifully packaged too, and now so treasured!

  3. That brooch is absolutely ADORABLE! I would love to see a pic of you wearing it sometime! I agree - I have never encountered anyone on Etsy that I haven't had a great experience with :)
