What do you give a sick friend? A gift basket? Not if she owns more baskets than the entire Amish community. She makes baskets herself, and, she's been collecting baskets for years. Well, she is a seamstress, so I decided to use a sewing machine drawer.
Soooo, I started with some colorful tissue paper. Then added my favorite cold medicine.
Next, she'll need some honey to mix with the medicine to make it go down easier........
a pretty teacup to mix it in,
then add a vintage teaspoon to stir.
Or course, chocolates make anyone AND everyone feel better.
And, a magazine. Gotta include a magazine. What southern lady wouldn't enjoy a copy of 'Southern Lady' magazine?
There ya have it.
Add a couple dried flowers.....a rosebud, a stem of larkspur, a head from my hydrangea bush. Stick a bright yellow bow in for extra color and CHEER.
Well, at least I hope it brought a little cheer to her sick day.
