A couple of weeks ago Vintage Vicki posted about the latest CK catalogue and offered it out to anyone who wanted a copy. Well as we don't have such niceties over here in little old NZ, I asked if I could possibly have a few photos of the pages emailed to me just for a nosy. No that wasn't good enough, Vicki insisted on sending it out to me. And golly isn't a goodie isn't it? We miss out so much over. However the very same day I found CK mugs on special no less, for sale and came home with four of them. They are a bit big really but the prints are just delicious. Now I just need hubby to make a floating shelf in the kitchen for them!
The gorgeous CK bag was sent to me from Lululiz who didn't know I liked CK stuff! Really that woman sometimes. What's not to like I ask? She had bought the last two magazines in the shop with two different bags attached. Well Liz being the very kind lady she is, insisted on sending me one for a bit of CK love of my own. I'm really starting to feel very fancy now.
Here's the very pretty card Vicky sent with the magazine. Sorry about the lack of catalogue photo, my mother is salivating over it at present.
Liz also sent my two girls some very thoughtful birthday presents and included a little something special for me. Aren't I the lucky one? Some vintage French buttons. Won't they look fabulous on something? They go beautifully with my linen and new trims. There's an idea already.
And lookie lookie!! My parcel from The Fabric Addict Swap has arrived. Helen organised it and I was partnered up with Lyn (no blog). Well you should see what was lurking beneath the wonderfully wrapped parcels! Next time, I promise. I tell you, I was completely spoilt!
The card alone is divine. Just look at the sweet little picture. I've always loved old pictures and I'm quite sure I can smell those old fashioned roses.
I can now also say that I've finally completed my apron for the Great Apron Swap of 2010. Woo hoo!! I actually really enjoyed making it too, not sure why it took me so long to get going. It's about to be wrapped up and sent tomorrow. Have you all made your aprons yet? Am I the last or not? As I was explaining to Liz, I didn't want to put too much pressure on the participants by finishing mine too early.
