Well, perhaps not the postman himself, but the lovely things he brings me. I have been so very lucky lately. Remember the two lovely giveaways I won recently? There was that incredibly detailed collage from the vivacious titbelsoeur, which you can see here. And then the wonderful tags and the kit from Dianne Knott, which you can admire on my post here. And today another package arrived for me. I had won another giveaway from the very generous Carol from the Queenbeealteredneeds blog. I was totally intrigued by her giveaway, because I had never even heard of tintypes before. I won these amazing tiny little photographs on tin, and three teeny weeny little watchmaker's bottles. One of them still has a tiny little part in it.
Just look at these tiny little treasures -
I forgot to take a picture of them with something to compare these tiny things to, so that you could get an idea of their actual size. So I have borrowed the photo from Carol's blog -
I want to use these for something special for the cottage in France, no idea yet what. Or rather, too many ideas, lol. I just haven't decided on one thing yet.
I was going to write about our lovely walk in the Firehills as well, but I am yawning my head off and I think I'll have an early night tonight. I'll post the pics from the Firehills tomorrow.
QUICK REMINDER, DON'T FORGET TO ENTER THE LALALAND GIVEAWAY! CLOSING ON SUNDAY!
