Then life went on as it always does. I became quite busy finishing up a design job, working on the Fashionista's apartment and allowing myself to wallow in self pity for a few days when she actually left our nest. So what pulled me out of my wallowing? An email from Susan. I had won the bird lantern. A few days later a package was delivered right to my front door. I can't even begin to tell you about the care that went into the wrapping of the lantern to insure that it arrived in pristine condition. I also received a sweet handwritten note from the darling owner congratulating me. Colonial Candle is class A in my book. I decided to use my lantern as a centerpiece for our annual first day of school breakfast.
Isn't the bird lantern absolutely gorgeous? I am still pinching myself!
