It's tradition...

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

The Pebbles blog is focusing on Christmas tradition this week so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to share a little bit of tradition that has been with us on the farm for as long as I can remember... thanking the postman!
Every Christmas we leave a bottle of wine in our postbox as a thankyou to our Postie for delivering the mail during the year. This year I decided to add a bit of fun and festivity to his gift by making a bottle box and star swing tag.

Although I've used non traditional colours in powder blue and red, I think it still looks festive as I've added some hand cut holly leaves and berries using Pebbles red glitter candy dots. Who would have thought I could get away with using the Pebbles New Arrival Boy collection for Christmas... just goes to show how versatile the range can be.
The Pebbles design team have some wonderful products to show you this week so don't forget to pop over to the blog and be inspired!


Only one week to go until the end of my Pebbles give-away so you still have time to enter HERE.

From farm to you...


  1. How lucky is your postman Melinda! This is such a well decorated bottle, such a neat collar & tag...very special! With a special Merry Christmas wish to you & your lovely family. xxxxx

  2. ........well I'm sort of like a Postie - I post special parcels to people..... and I like RED too! :0)

    Job well done, looks great.

  3. SNAP I do the same but for the girls & boys who serve me each day at the post office,they usually get a tin of biscuits, if I don't eat them (then have to buy more, like this year!)
    Love how you have decorated your gift
    Merry Christmas to you and your family, thank you for your support this year
    Be safe and merry :)
    Tracy :)
