Surprise!

My postie arrived with a wonderful unexpected package on wednesday. Inside the plain brown wrapping was this lovely pile of goodies, tied with silvery orangey pink ribbon. Like all good bloggers I whipped out the camera to record the unveiling process....


Revealed...two lovely little notebooks and a little card depicting enamelware in the garden...


and a vibrant lavender-scented heart...


And the sender of this very generous parcel? The lovely Helen! Helen, thanks so much, this was totally unexpected...and I do love a surprise. Especially when it encompasses some of my favourite things - paper and notebooks, the enamelware (which I collect in a small way) in Helen's own photo, and lavender hearts. I really like Helen's notecard, printed by Moo. The finish is matt laminate, and it's much classier than the postcards I had printed a while ago (they were too glossy for my taste). I could be tempted now...

Happy weekend everyone!
And to all of you going to the Handmade and Vintage Fair tomorrow - have a wonderful day!

The pleasure was all mine...did I tell you that the lavender is very special..hand picked from my garden...and dressed in Cath Kidston...with a promise of a restful nights sleep and sweet dreams if placed under your pillow
love and hugs

What a great friend, everything is lovely. I really do prefer the matt look to gloss, in paint and in photographs. Making photocards is something I would like to try, when I have more time to spare. x

Hi Diana. We've had dodgy internet connections over the weekend so haven't had a chance to comment till now. Lovely gifts and I can't work out how the cards from Moo are matt as they don't offer that option (or am I looking in worong place?) Hope you have avoided the rotten colds that are running rampant here xx

Wonderful gifts - it is always so lovely to receive something in the post! I have to say I knew who had sent the gift as soon as I saw that ribbon - I was lucky enough to receive something from Helen recently! How is the cowl coming on?
