Hello February! Lovely to see you. February is the month that links us to March which brings Spring! But I like February. We will still have bitter cold days mixed with beautiful sunny days with Valentine’s Day right in the middle.
February is going to leave a mark on history, at least for Erin & Co. because our very first sets of Pretty Parcels shipped cheerfully to mailboxes and hopefully brought lots of smiles! Sarah and I are extremely thankful for each person who signed up for a February Parcel without much more than a “you’re going to love it” endorsement!
We didn’t want to tell exactly what’s inside because not knowing is part of the charm. We thought of each person finding her much anticipated package in the mail, and then unwrapping the thoughtfully curated selection of items.
February’s Parcel is about Grateful Hearts.
The Tailor Made portion of the parcel includes a classic gray crew neck in Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year, Living Coral. For the Handmade item, we chose leather earrings by Pinky Posey, a fun staple with the romantic flare of rose gold. We paired these to be worn together! The shirt and earrings will take the wearer into Spring and on through Summer.
Sarah chose Louisiana Strawberry Pie as the Homemade Recipe for the month because this is a perfect Valentine’s desert. The beautiful strawberries create a gorgeous red pie topped with fluffy whipped cream. We thought those receiving the parcel could make the pie for a special someone, for your family, or we also had another idea in mind.
Use one of the cards, the Made with Love item, to write a note to someone who may need some encouragement. Make that person the pie, attach the note, and go see her or him!
The Made my Day gift was a tea towel that says, Grateful Hearts Gather Here. To me, the tea towel goes hand in hand with baking. Cooking is love! What better place for grateful hearts to gather than in the kitchen.
