Little presents - Simply Neutrals #25

Little presents by AppleApricot

Hello dear friends, here's another Simply Neutrals party!
And a nice number too: 25.

This week I'm sharing some of the little gifts I added to the swap for Odetta.
For this, I made a little gift bag with an image I received some time ago from Marie of Lost Bird Studio. You can find her wonderful giveaway (which I won back in 2013, lucky me!) HERE.

I will show a little more goodies of the swap another time.


First of all, I had been posting on my blog a couple of times after our last party and noticed that it might have influenced the number of link ups to last party. Please know that you can ALWAYS link up to the most recent party (except for a few hours before the new party starts), so you can hardly ever be too late to join. Just click on Simply Neutrals in the page section above and you'll see the most recent party on the top.

Second, my week has been a crazy one, so please forgive me if I haven't visited or replied. I will do my best to do this asap.

Here are the features:

Speaking of Marie... She painted a most beautiful vintage suitcase in a beautiful white and made a lovely vignette with it. You can find more photos on her blog Lost Bird Studio HERE.

Then there was this gorgeous card by Suzy of Suziqu's Threadworks:

I was happy to see her back on her blog and creating again after she and her husband moved.

And speaking of houses... I saw this wonderful street art, captured by Jutta of My Digital Wonderland.

I love street art when done respectfully. Especially if it brightens up an otherwise gloomy place.

Ladies, here's your "I was featured" button!

On to the new party!


What neutral coloured beauty did you find or make or buy or receive?

Post anything in neutral colours,
be it cream, white, grey, beige, silver and/or brown.

A creation you made or received, home decoration, a statue or architecture, or anything out there that you were allowed to take a photo of.
