I know that some of you have been celebrating for several days now - giggle - everyone seems to have a different calendar or idea of what day the equinox falls on this year. According to my calendar it is today, the 23rd - so I'm posting my happiest wishes to you all!
Faerwillow, over at Serendipity hosted an Autumn Equinox exchange and gave us partners to send items that represented the season. For me, Autumn is all about home and comfort - comfort food that is! I sent my exchange partner some chocolates, cinnamon honey, gourmet hot chocolate, candied nuts, candles, Halloween ephemera, and a little bear in a pumpkin outfit.
We were asked to wait until the Equinox to open our package, and then share on our blogs what we received. My exchange partner is the incredibly creative Angelique at For the Love of Creativity.
As you can see from my list - my creativity lies in shopping. I am not bad with child-safe scissors and a glue stick - but anything else is beyond me. Angelique however, is amazing! I received the most incredible treasures from her!
The first item is the Autumn Fairy. She is just lovely - her colours are quite bright and cheery and I know just where she is going on my wall
And in my tea will be this yummy Texas honey. Look at the beautiful artwork Angelique put over the label! I won't be giving up this jar when all the honey is gone!
And if those lovelies weren't enough, there was this fabulous little "Wishing Jar" with all sorts of faery trinkets inside and out. Even a 1946 wheat penny from the Mr.! Thank you, thank you! I almost lost this treasure to my neice who was helping me unwrap my gifts. I told her she could add her wishes to the jar - but it was staying at Auntie's place!
So many thank you's to Angelique and Faerwillow! This has been so much fun!
Happiest Autumn to all of you!
