Shabby But Not TOO Shabby

I have a wonderful friend
I met through blogging~
She has a blog full of
"pretties".

She has sent me some beautiful
things in the past year or so.
I used some of her tags on
the little girls'
Pink Christmas tree (here)

I was totally surprised
and delighted
to open an envelope last week
and find this inside.
The beautiful yellow piece of art
in the front is a hand made card.
Doesn't she do a beautiful job?
And underneath the card is
this beautiful altered
Candy Box.
Can you believe how sweet it is?
(get it? Sweet? Candy? never mind)
My pictures do not begin to do it justiice.

When I opened the box I had even
more of a surprise because
it had some wonderful goodies in it.
A beautiful hand made tag.
And a lovely notepad wih calendar on it
And also tucked inside 2 sweet little candles..

Isn't she a talented lady?
I am blessed to be her friend.

I have a guest bedroom
that is all done in shades of
lavender. 
 Can you guess where these items
 will be displayed?

If you don't know
Suzann's blog Shabby ESP
go visit her.
I promise you...
Her blog ain't too shabby,
if you know what I mean!

Thank you so much, Suzann!

ps...should I take the candles
OUT of the box before lighting them?;>)
