This amazing parcel arrived from Selina. I became her 100th Follower and was promised a gift as a thank you. Really I wasn't expecting anything like what arrived!
Just look at all these sewing bits and bobs. Love the ric rac of course, and the fabric squares, and just look at the little stocking!
These must be the tiniest little bells I've ever seen. They are only a few mm's big and they have a rusted look. I can't wait to use them on something Christmassy. They are beautiful.
And of course a few vintage buttons are always welcome at my home. Love them so much more than new ones. Just look at the depth of colour. Thank you so much Selina!
Oh I nearly forgot, she made me this little needle case too. This will keep one of my daughter's needles out of the carpet and safely in her sewing kit now.
And my lovely commenter friend Priyanca sent me this lovely little braid for Christmas. She saw it and immediately thought of me. What a sweetie she is. I can just see is on a pretty little girls dress.
And a while ago I won a wonderful prize from Juanita. It was a mystery what I was being sent which made the wait very exciting. And just look at all the pretty goodies that arrived! WOW!!
Of course all handmade by her own fabulously creative hands too. I love the box she has printed with her own label on it. But this little cupcake keyring is my absolute favourite piece. Look at how tiny it is and it's crocheted I think too. I'm a bit worried about using it as I'd hate for it to get damaged. So for now I'm just admiring it on my bedside table.
How elegant does my hand look with the bracelet on? It really suits the gold in my ring. I think feeling a little glam today. Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness Juanita!
I don't normally post on a Saturday, but hey, in the holiday's every day is a Saturday isn't it?!! I love January so much. It really is my favourite time of the year. So relaxing and homely.
Fish and Chips were had last night at the beach. It was a bit windy so ended up having the dessert at the Grandparents house much to the disgust of the girls. And today it's meant to be really wet but the sun sure looks pretty and yellow to me. I guess I'll get some washing done after all. Any of you snowy people need any help with the drying of clothes? I'd love to be of some help. Plenty of space left on the clothes line if you need a bit of sun.
