The lovely Karena is offering a giveaway of Metis items on her blog Art by Karena, with the winner being chosen on November 1st. We love the serenity and inspiration of her paintings, but also of course we just love Karena herself!
We want to show you the contents of the basket, and there seems to be an early clamoring for the keys, so we're going to add in this set to the basket. 19C French keys, tied on a generous piece of red silk satin~
We started with over 100 18C and 19C keys, some are crusty and rusty, some are clean and shiny. Something like this set above is $25 for the set of 5. The selection of keys deserves another post, so look for that soon.
The linens in the basket are rolled up behind the candles; they are a pair of creamy colored vintage French 100% linen dishtowels, not monogrammed, and each approximately 25" x 54". Here is the entire grouping, in one of Andrea's Eze baskets from Morocco, trimmed in lambskin~
On the left here you see the French extra-blue lavender in Laura's sweet packaging~
Also included is a jar of Laura's home-made bath salts, made with lavender; it's on the other side of the basket but just out of view.There are eight chubby beeswax candles in the basket, tied in pairs with four of our silk-wrap ties and French religious medal charms~
We're showing you the ones in the basket now, including this one with amethyst-colored vintage glass bead and baroque pearl~
we will consult with our winner to select something perfectly suited. There are many charms to choose from; the charms range in value from approximately $20 up to $75 depending on the medals and beads or stones~
these can be used for holiday napkin ties, or for wrist wraps~
Thank you Karena for hosting the giveaway!
