Junk Mail from Candy!March 4th, 2009 in member junk
My junk friend, Candy, sent me a package the other day.
When I went on vacation last month, I came across an old (really rusty) test tube holder - and it reminded me of a project that Candy had done in January using glass cigar tubes, a wood stand, and tulips - so, I snatched it up right away (it only had 3 test tubes, but I knew I'd come across more...AND, my "junk" angel was watching over me...). So, when I posted my vacation finds, and Candy saw the test tube holder...well, she very generously decided to send me some to complete my project.
The package came last week (and in typical Candy-style) it was wrapped very creatively - and beautifully in a junky sort of way! The tag even matched - with a stamp of a box of cigars...not sure how she did that - but a very cool touch!
Well, I couldn't open it fast enough (I did slow down a bit to get pictues though) - and sure enough there were nine beautiful glass cigar tubes inside... I didn't have any fresh flowers, but used some button stems from a bouquet I was working on, so I could get the full effect - and I think it's divine!!! I can't wait to bring flowers in from my garden and show them off in my new bud vases!
Candy - thank you so much. It was all very thoughtful and I appreciate them soooo much! I'm looking forward to meeting my junk friend in person, and to a junking adventure as soon as we get out of this wintery weather!
P.S. Here's the post on my blog - more pics... http://sylviasdaughter.blogspot.com/2009/03/junk-mail.html
