Happy Birthday Aunt Connie!

A couple of months back I found this interesting container at the Second Hand Store. It appears to really be an antique and has this great metal banding that is partially rusty. Appealing to me with the grungy durable thing. 

Thought long and hard as to WHY I'd need this and then thought, why of course! It would make a great container for a birthday gift for my Aunt that lives in San Fran. 

Of course, her birthday is today and I finally got around to putting good yummy stuff in it yesterday.

What a good excuse to go to the Chocolate Shop!

Handmade a tag to go in this gift, used some pretty Lizzy Hill flowers and a cool graphic from Nice Crane Designs!

I think this would be a very useful graphic to have on hand for tags and cards. And the colors are delicious!

Now all that is left is to find a box and send it! I'm lucky, my mail lady rocks!

We bonded one day when her car refused to start in my driveway and we spent some time troubleshooting her battery. Turned out it was the actual cable and I figured that out the phone with the THE MAN. Was pretty proud of myself right there. ;-)

Anyhow, she was holding out for her new wheels! A Lime Green Jeep with Right Hand Drive. Yes, you guys elsewhere would love it, since it would work on your roads!!! 

So anyhow, Miss Mail Carrier with the Cool Jeep will stop by soon and grab this package and get it on the way to you Aunt Connie. Have a happy one today!
