*In Love And White Wednesday**

 Hey all, I just had to show you what I ordered a couple of days ago.
When I opened up the package this is what was waiting for me inside, I was in shock!

Aren't these little packages adorable?!!! This isn't even my order. This is just the packaging. Can you believe it?

This talented lady used dictionary pages and sewed them together topped off with handmade fabric tags sewn onto the little package. I loved it so much I couldn't bring myself to open them up.

This is what was inside once I finally removed a small strip of paper off of the bottom:

 Gorgeous handmade pillows with very special dates on them.
1993~My wedding date.
2004~My Jayden's birthday.
2008~My little Jack's birthday.

This talented amazing gal is Amy from the fabulous blog Mittens.
She also makes fabulous  crocheted hats and other wonderful handmade goods. And, she's sweet as heck! She also does custom orders!!
Check out her 2 Etsy shops:
and http://www. vintagemarketplace.etsy.com 
I know you will love her beautiful treasures as much as I do!!
I had to show off my new treasures for White Wednesday, so check out the other participants at Faded Charm. 
Talk to you all soon.

  21. Malinda,
    I am in wow over the packing as well. That is how I felt When Kim from... http://Whitewhispers2u.blogspot.com
    She did someting special for me on my win from her. It was all wrapped up in tattered muslin and tied off with natural ties and beautiful tages. I know what it feels like to get something with such love and care in the gifting of it.

    You can now put the packages to great use in a holiday gift, packaged inside that pouch :)

    Great inspiring post!
