i'm taking a little departure from the usual red thread to bring you this autumn swap sneak peek. i can't say who my swap partner is; that's a secret. but based on answers to the swap questions and her blog, this is what i came up with. when possible, i tried to keep things local to give my swapping partner a little taste of the bay area. i hope she likes it. (apologies for the fuzzy photo above. i was in quite a hurry this morning.)
godiva hot chocolate - this san francisco company makes some truly decadent chocolate, so i'm betting this drink will be the perfect indulgence on cold autumn nights.
"A" handkerchief - the first letter of my swapping partner's first name.
guittard chocolate bar (wrapped in the handkerchief) - the factory is within two miles of my apartment. many times i'll smell the knee-buckling chocolate aroma coming home from work, which is the such a sweet "welcome home" for me. i'm hoping my swapping partner will find this chocolate just as welcoming.
socks - warm and cozy, they say "comfort" to me.
city walks: paris - since she cited amelie as her favorite movie, i think this deck of short tours will be a perfect guide when she wants to let her imagination take her all over paris (or wherever she likes, just like amelie).
purple - my swapping partner's favorite color. you can't tell from this photo, but the godiva label and guittard label are a rich purple.
happy autumn, everyone!
