Springtime in Paris

A monogrammed shopping bag, monogrammed towel, papers, ribbons, buttons, a French-inspired box filled with fabulous chocolates, oh my!! My Springtime in Paris swap partner, Michele from Calico Daisy , sent me this wonderful package. I have already taken that incredibly cute bag on a couple of shopping trips with me. The colors theme of this swap was blues, blacks and whites and isn't that bag just fantastic in those colors? I love it! You can get your own over at Michele's site along with a set of those lucious towels. Great package Michele. Thank you!!

This is the package that I sent to Michele. I had a hoot finding Paris items in the right color theme and putting this one together.

I had a great time making the Paris luggage tags. They worked out wonderfully ~ The morning that Michele opened her package she was actually just leaving for a trip to D.C., so she added the Paris tag to her laptop case and went on her merry way. I'm so glad that she got use out of them right away ~
Another fantastic swap hosted by the Goodness girls at Sweet Goodness Swaps!

I adore the luggage tags, too cute! The name of your blog is adorable as well, I live in Washington so I spend my nights in the rain as well.
