The bow is a pom pom made from plastic bags! How great is that. She shares the how to at her blog, LeTrip.
Here is the gift - a lovely vintage French print of bird baths along with some garden architecture. Getting this framed and on my freshly painted walls will jet to the front of the projects-to-do line.
And her gift card touched my heart: "Merry Christmas to the recycled birdbath queen and her king! Sending you love from Provence and best wishes for 2009! Jill". (She's such a good friend that she even watched the You Tube video of my efforts to transfer a table lamp into a bird bath.)
I hope you get something special in the mail this week too. -- Beth
