a beautifully crafted gift

You may remember that I mentioned I had a (practically impromptu!) bridal shower a few weeks ago, thrown by some of my oldest and dearest hometown friends.  It was such a lovely morning, and such a treat to be in the presence of so many of my favorite people, all in one room!

There was one gift in particular that I received that morning, that was so thoughtful and caringly curated, I just had to share it!  My good friend Rachel, knowing my love for vintage finds and anything yellow, put together this sweet array:

I opened the box and was immediately taken with the overall package, and then I started realizing what each thing was — every item was just so special on its own.

There was some yellow and white vintage trim, still on its spool, from Plankenhorn Braid Works (with the lot number written on the spool!  I think that’s so cool!).  Can’t wait to figure out how to use it.

There was a gorgeous apron from Leacock Linens.  I did a little research on this one, and I found a vintage tea towel with the same pattern from Leacock, produced in the 1950’s (I think!).  I’ll have to ask Rachel.  🙂

And finally, there were two adorable little bottles of the best olive oil ever:  Sciabica’s.  The Sciabica family is from Sicily but eventually settled in my hometown, Modesto, where they began cold pressing olive oil in 1936.  It’s still a family-owned and operated business, and their stuff is just the best.

And if that wasn’t enough, Rachel’s family is in the baking supply business, and the gift had a sweet little note in it, telling me that some bread pans were on the way.  So thoughtful, so kind, and so beautiful!  Thanks, Rachel.  xoxo

  1. I have your bread pans, but want to wait until you are back in NY to send them to you. Let me know what your schedule is!

    1. You can send them anytime that’s good for you — we arranged it so that our packages are picked up. Hooray! 🙂
