I've Been Lucky!

Remember Christine, this awesome mosaic artist I spotlighted back in April?

Well, she hosted a giveaway on her blog, and of course I had to enter, I love her work so much!  The giveaway was for a beautiful vanity tray... and I won!  I was so excited to get it in the mail the other day.

She does not kid around with the wrapping.  This is what I got in the mail:

See all that tape?  Every single seam in the plain brown wrapper was taped up to the hilt, so I had to pull out a sharp-pointed scissor to get in.  I was laughing at my own impatience and the fact that she foiled me so well.

Inside that, the box.

It was like opening a present!  Which, I guess, is what it really was...

That was taped too, end to end.  Once I got inside, lots of wrapping to protect the tray.

I've already re-used all the bubble wrap, splitting it among four outgoing Reef Botanicals orders!  (Because yes, while the primary RB site is still down during renovations, you can shop at our HAF Shop.)

And then, the part I'd been waiting for, I got to my tray!

Isn't it pretty?  Even Eric commented that it was really cute, and he's not exactly a fan of the flowers and floof.  And here it is, sitting nicely on the corner of my dresser.  I'm almost loathe to put anything into it and block the view of the mosaic!

Want one of your own?  Check out Chris' shop!
