Lucky Lady!

When a parcel arrives with the address label looking like this, you just know it will contain lovely stuff!
It was my giveaway win from the talented Little Gem (who has just got her degree results - 2:1 - fantastic!)Look at all of these packages, all wrapped in CK paper (OH did think I was a bit weired when i very gently removed the tape, so i could save the wrapping)

LG designed and painted these cards and they are for sale in her blog shop. It is perfect timing as it is OH birthday on Monday so I can give him the card and then frame it!

I have been spoilt as LG has added the sweet little painted pot to all of the other giveaway goodies.

The brooch has already found a new home on my CK messenger bag that I love. I think of it as my happy bag as I only use it at weekends. It has some good company on the bag!

Thank you so much LG, I adore everything you have made and sent with love and care. XX

Did you notice the background fabric for the pictures? I popped in to the CK outlet in Bicester on my way home from a meeting on Tuesday and they had these packs of 4 napkins reduced from £15 to £5. The fabric is finer than the fabric she sells now, so I think they must be a very old design.

I had another surprise package arrive yesterday from Mary Poppins and it was bursting at the seams with fantastic fabric. Thank you for your kindness and for thinking of me. xx

Blogging never ceases to amaze me and I have met a whole bunch of fantastic people through it.
So to all my blogging friends, old and new thank you for being there - please enjoy a homegrown strawberry dipped in chocolate!
MM xx

  9. I love your CK napkins - how fab to live so close to the outlet, although maybe too much temptation if it was me!!
