I had completely forgotten that I hadn't received my swap package for the Unbirthday Swap organised by the Undomesticated Scientist until it arrived the other day. What a lovely surprise! A box full of lovely goodies from Clare at Weekend Crafter. She had chosen some beautiful gifts for me. I was VERY pleased with my lovely things!!
My lovely box full of pressies and a cool card...
A pretty little wooden house and a gorgeous cupcake badge
A beautiful handmade hanging heart. Love the fabric.
The sweetest little wooden hanging apple. So pretty
A little strawberry bag charm
A very pretty little oilcloth purse which Izzy has got her eye on
Some lovely gifts to represent where Clare lives - we have a Welsh tea towel, Welsh rock, Welsh recipe book, Welsh chocolate and some Welsh postcards!
Gorgeous Cath Kidston tissues and mirror for my handbag. Perfect!
and a lovely little hanging blackboard with a little teapot and a peg for keeping things safe.
Thanks so much Clare. Really well chosen gifts! I love them all.
I had a second lovely surprise in the post when Jan from Lemonade Kitty very kindly sent me another donation towards postage for the 'Dress a Girl around the World' appeal. The donation was in memory of her sister Karen who would have celebrated her 50th birthday on Monday. I am delighted to accept this donation in Karen's memory and want to thank Jan for the very kind gesture. I will make sure that it is used to get dresses to girls who need them.
Izzy's gorgeous picture arrived from Utterley Butterflies today. Its so pretty. I love it! It has her name on one of the butterflies and will look gorgeous in her bedroom.
Her butterfly themed party is only 2 weeks away. I really need to finish those party bags!!
There is a lovely giveaway over on The Village Haberdashery blog. A lovely quilting book. Pop over and join in and have a look at the lovely website too!
Just ordered a copy of this for our next reading group. Quite excited about re reading it.
Anyone rediscovered an old classic recently?
