A cornucopia of artsy autumnal goodness....

Yeah....how about that title? HAH!

Okay, seriously. I got the BEST, most fan-ta-bu-lous artsy autumn swap I could have asked for!

I mean, just look at this gorgeous cornucopia. I had to put it on my dining room chair so you could see how well it matches my fabric.


Closeup of the basket trim....gorgeous.



I have always wanted a cornucopia.......but they are hard to find....unless they are pre-filled with fruit and nuts....

And look what came inside.....all tumbling out for me to unwrap!
Sipping chocolate in a lovely brown and aqua tin, scented ornaments, a lavender sachet, paper napkins, a cute Halloween cookbook, scrap book papers, a tiny journal, a lovely little card she embellished with shells and music and lavender.....


Here is a closeup of a little book she bought me to 'cut up' for bookmarks, NEVER!
I will use it just as it is!


Look at the trim on this tea towel.........

Oh my goodness Elaine, you truly outdid yourself. I sincerely love and appreciate everything!

What a gorgeous package! I made a cornucopia once -- bought the cornucopia and stuck some silk flowers in it. I really thought it was artsy. Now after seeing yours....
