My dear friend Natasha and I decided to do a little swap a few months ago. I am finally finishing my end of things... Life just has a way of getting in the way you know?
I created her a necklace... she requested candy colors when I asked her what colors she would like, so this is what I created for her.
I love the bow! It is currently almost summertime in Australia where Natasha lives so the candy colors of this necklace are perfect for hot summer days. The pink rhinestone piece reminds me of a snowflake... so every time I look at it I think of how it is winter here...and summer there... which is always so fascinating to me~ and I think it is so cool how we share this wonderful friendship from across the world. ;)
Hope you love it N! I also have a few other pretty little things for her but I am going to leave that a surprise until she gets it.
On the recieving end of things... Natasha painted me a gorgeous set of beachy paintings inspired by the Australian coast.
I told her I had been wanting a painting of the ocean and this is what she came up with for me... I LOVE them. Her creations are just perfect for me. I love them so much because they are simple... and in the best shade of deep ocean greenish-blue. I am so priveleged to own one of her beautiful paintings. She has such a unique and beautiful style to her work.
My son is trying to take this one with the sailboat off of me for his room! haha. I might let him hang this one in his room and I will display the other one somewhere else but so far I havent' been able to split them up.
This swap was so much fun... it is always fun to exchange gifts among your friends isn't it? I don't think there is anyone that truly GETS us like our girlfriends.
We have had a busy week this past week with Thanksgiving and it was my sons birthday party... we have spent the weekend putting up some Christmas decorations. It is looking very festive! Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving. Happy Christmas trimming!
