Yup, it's another blog hop hosted by myself and my partner in crime - MARLENE CUPO. Here's how we introduced this blog hop...
It’s time to have a VERY MERRY UNBIRTHDAY PARTY via our extra special HBBH 3 ½ Blog Event! Yes, we are at it again. Just like the "March Hare", the "White Rabbit", and the "Mad Hatter" invited "Alice" to their party, we are inviting you to ours!
We will assign partners, and send out e-mail notifications so you can contact one another and find out what month you each celebrate your birthday.
So now its FINALLY party time! Time to tear open our gifts!
YEAH, right, did you really think I would wait to open my gift? I ripped that sucker open as soon as it arrived! Heeheehee...
My party partner is Janeen Burlingame. What a sweetie she is! Before we get to the gift she sent let me tell you about the wrapping. She had it wrapped so-o-o beautifully. It came in a very pretty floral bag with ruby-colored organza ribbon. Inside with the gift was a bar of CHOCOLATE, yummy Dagoba Roseberry Dark Chocolate with raspberries and rosehips! (tore that open in a New York second! - munch, munch, munch!) - wasn't sure what "rosehips" was but I ate it!
She also enclosed a gorgeous card made from handmade paper with pressed flowers..LOVE! The message inside was sweet as well.
OKAY so now I have made all the nice comments that are expected...let's get to the goodies!
THIS beautiful necklace! Nice, right? The focal flowers are made from carved wood. I'm not sure if she knew, but my favorite style is nature-inspired boho so this was perfect! Turquoise and ruby colored beads (my birthstone!) ALL wrapped in antique silver findings. I LOVE IT. I love the color palette, the texture, the style, and even the weight of it! PERFECT!
Thank you Janeen, I love it, absolutely LOVE it!
What. did. I. send. Janeen?
Well, I like to think of myself as a bit of a detective (aka nosey person). Yeah, well ANYWHO I scoped out her online presence, specifically her Pinterest. I found out she likes a certain chocolate. Dagoba's Organic Chocolate, CHAI flavored. Chocolate CHeCk!

And she seems to like Buddhas...well I found some pretty soap and since her birthstone's Emerald- she was born in May - I got her the GREEN tea scented ones. Buddha, CHeCk!

And I also made her a little something- something. In GREEN, CHeCk!

So that's my story. Go, mingle, meet the rest of our guests. Me? I'm going to see if I can find out what the hell ROSEHIP is!
