cavallini love

This beautiful Cavallini card sat atop red tissue paper upon opening my latest 14 things parcel. This package came to me from Austen @ Stripey Pebble in Toronto.

14 things Part 3

1. a beachy thing - stripey pebbles from stripey pebble - beach stones return home to their much loved families here in Nova Scotia
2. a papery thing - Canadian Living July issue and a special recipe issue - she's a Copy Editor.
3. a thing that cost less than $1 - a sweet blue tin with a lid - a place to keep treasure
4. a red thing - a handmade red (my favourite colour) vinyl pencil case
5. something found in the back of a drawer - a strawberry huller, two more weeks ... 'til strawberry season
6. something starting with the first initial of your middle name - "B" a little bag of vintage buttons. smile
7. something that once was alive - a maple key, the twirling seed pod of our maple trees
8. a soft thing - lovely hand knit cotton face cloths in beautiful colours
9. a food item traditional to your area - treats from Ace Bakery (a haunt of mine when I lived in TO), little crisp crostini bread with raisins and cranberry.
10. something that delights you - McBloom's bath salts - I love the scent !
11. something that once was useful - a TTC (Toronto Transit Commission ticket) and a frequent buyer card from the Trident coffee & books shop in Halifax. Well stamped.
12. favourite candy/chocolate bar - Green & Black's organic 70% dark chocolate. yum !
13. favourite hand written recipe - Austen's best scones -perfect for my upcoming strawberry shortcake season - and now I have a strawberry huller too.
14. a tea bag of your favourite tea - a bag of each English & Irish breakfast teas ... and thoughts about a possible Canadian breakfast tea (very Orange Pekoe -ish I would think)
