Yesterday was my birthday. Which meant hubby and Kate made me some of this and...
I opened my other Tiffany box.
My husband and daughter went to New York City just before Christmas and brought back three Tiffany boxes. One for Kate and two boxes for me - one wrapped with a red ribbon and one with a white one. I opened the red ribbon box at Christmas as it was obviously decorated with a seasonal ribbon, but I saved the white ribbon box. I realize that it seems strange not to open both of the Tiffany boxes that were under the Christmas tree for me, but they looked so pretty that I decided to wait until my birthday to open one of them (it did help that my birthday was only a month and a bit away). Several of you have emailed to ask me what I got in the Tiffany box, so I thought I would let you all know.
Inside the last Tiffany box was the sweetest little crystal bowl decorated with stars.
It is just perfect in all respects - shape, size, design, and origin. I have yet to decide what I'm going to use it for, but this is what is in it now. Pretty perfect too, eh!
My daughter bought herself a souvenir from Tiffany's. She chose a little ceramic Tiffany box that is modelled on the iconic blue box. It looks adorable in her room on top of a stack of blue boxes - one Tiffany's and one Birk's (the Canadian equivalent to Tiffany's) and will always remind her of the wonderful trip they had to celebrate her graduation from high school.
At Christmas I opened my first Tiffany box and in it was a pretty little ceramic box with sketches of Manhattan around the Tiffany Store. I love the details on it.
On the side were more little sketches of New York scenes.
Seeing the Brooklyn Bridge always reminds me of my little corner of Manhattan which I'll tell you about it in a post tomorrow.
