my friend carrie who loves jackie greene, tea, all things francais. when we met, we were both watching "bright star" at the same time. kismet.

i love how this blogging world we've created has brought darling friends into my life that i can't imagine not knowing. Carrie is one of them.

we had so much in common when we "met", we decided to exchange "micaela adores carrie" and "carrie adores micaela" packages.

i wanted to share what my sweet friend sent us for our wedding gift:

don't you love the floral wrapping?

vintage postcard, handpainted glass ornament from a christmas market, pretty tin filled with "tea for marriage" +

how darling is this vintage book and her message? everything was so me.  but that's because carrie is one of those beautiful persons in my life that gets me. i love you carrie! j'taime. xoxo

because carrie doesn't have her blog up and running just yet -- to give you an idea of her fabulousness, here's what i sent in my "j'adore carrie" parcel:

carrie collects sea glass & wears fun socks (can you guess her fave colour?) cobalt blue sea glass chunk necklace from star dog studio

and we both love biographies and the King. i couldn't believe she hadn't read this amazing read by Priscilla, so when i saw it at my favorite used bookshop, it instantly went up in my arms.

When i was planning what kind of wedding i wanted, Carrie shared her magical day with me and i loved hearing her stories. I also thought it was special they had a destination wedding in Grand Teton National Park outside a gorgeous church. I ordered the above custom map from refashioned-- i love JoAnn's work & huge collection of vintage maps.

don't you love putting together care packages for your closest friends? to me, it's almost as good as receiving one.

I love putting together parcels for friends. The best one I ever sent was to Em, after she'd had the worst possible news. I filled that parcel up with so much love and so many happy distractions. She loved it, and it made me feel better, and like I was helping to do something... even though I was so far away. I'll never forget scouring the shops looking for things to put in that parcel, or our long phone conversation as she opened it.
