is what I got in the mail today! Pure delightful Heaven...... let me walk you through my excitement. First, Kavin came in with a bag and said....... "New Zealand". My mouth flew open, my eyes glazed over........ I, ..... I couldn't speak...... words wouldn't form. After a brief hyperventilating moment........ a mumbled, "Rhiannon..... ToastAndCupcakes"...........I composed myself and did this while almost knocking my kid over trying to get it from him. (He's okay if you're worried....... he's a tough kid.)
Oh. My. My. My......
Do you see the knobby ball peeking thought that delicious paper? No? Here, try again:
See it now?
It wasn't easy taking so much time to arrange and shoot before taking it out and just melting everywhere! I'm telling you, this is my very favorite bag of all time ..... ever! It's brown..... cool already I know, then she took some orange felt and machine embroidered the most neatest botanical design on it....... here's a closeup:
Okay...... now to see the full bag.... I took it outside and hung it up on one of the Crepe Myrtle trees:
I had Kavin take a picture of me pretending to walk with it but my huge big fat football players arms ruined the picture. Here's the inside:
She took so many things into consideration. The pocket is nice and big with Velcro closures and big buttons to give it appeal. With the way she constructed it..... I'm able to pull it apart and insert a baby elephant if needed. So much room and so, so sturdy. The workmanship is just second to none!
I've been talking to her about putting some things on Etsy. I soooo think she would kick some major bag booty on there....... unfortunately she has so much on her plate right now that time is not on her side. You can check out her blog and see all the great things she makes and finds thrifting.
She may still have the other bag she was offering up for sale...... it truly is beautiful and worth every penny. Have I slobbered enough. She's gonna think I'm stalking her soon.......
Oh, back to the chocolate she sent. OH, the chocolate and chips. I broke out my trusty Points Finder from Weight Watchers to see how many ........ Pineapple Lumps ........ I could get away with. Okay, um...... I guess in new Zealand they call calories ...... "energy". Isn't that nice? Anyhoo..... I don't think they use the same system so I couldn't figure it out.
Does this mean they're free points or will the points not count?
Is it sorta like when you ask........"Does a tree make noise if it falls in the woods when there's nobody to hear it?". Maybe if it can't be figured out on the Points Finder, then they won't count?
Yeah, I thought so too....... now that I've eaten more than half the damn bag!
All kidding aside........ thank you Rhiannon for my beautiful bag and the goodies you sent along with it! I believe I owe you shipping and will try to figure out how much and send it your way. AND, I'm almost done working on the little something for you and Aesop..... I'm hoping to get it completed as soon as I'm done working on the wholesale oder that has taken over my life! I'll just say it includes roses and a Lego thing created especially for Aesop by Kavin.
More later on the news I got today about our shop...... it's very exciting!
