Giveaway: Gift Envelope Set from Paper Plaza

Giveaway by Paper Plaza
Don't fall overboard, but it's been two years since my pirate wedding! Our ship was filled to the hull with trinkets before we got married, thus we brazenly requested money to embark on an adventure instead of surrendering a gift registry. Our guests spoiled us with creative cards, all of which I saved in a treasure chest. The gold embossed rose envelopes above would have matched our color scheme beautifully, especially my black and gold silk rose bouquet. Now you have a chance to commandeer them for free! Vishruti from Paper Plaza is giving away a set of five gift envelopes of winner's choice from her Etsy shop.

The money holders are made of recycled paper and measure 9cm x 17cm (approximately 3.5" x 6.5") each. The roses are available on a variety of colors, as are gorgeous gold foil paisely designs. The holidays will appear on the horizon before you know it. Sail the extra mile and give those gift cards in a unique envelope from India!

WW: Raindrops on Rose of Sharon Flowers

Raindrops on Flowers Macro
"It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees."
- George Eliot

The last of the rose of Sharon petals fell a few days ago, but not before I photographed the purple flowers after a late summer rain.

Treasury Tuesday: Forest Fairy

The forest fairies are preparing for fall. Pasha Bodrum waved her magic wand to help during a Treasury Island spotlight attack on my fantasy shop. Her whimsical gift ideas include sage green and pink fairy wings by R.S. Dixon Art, felted fairy shoes by Zave's Felt and my swirly pink flower magnet.
