Instead of having nothing to say and show at all, I have too much, lol! I was going to post about yesterday's boot fair, and the rather nice treasures I found. But something much more important has cropped up - my eagerly awaited package from Judy has arrived!
Judy has a blog called Tapestries of Nature , which I much admire. You just have to go and see what she does with crocheted doilies and laces, you'll be amazed! And her pillows, well, they are just exquisite. Anyway, a little while ago, Judy had a giveaway to celebrate her 150th post. It was a wonderful giveaway, and of course I entered. And of course, I didn't win, lol. So I cried my little heart out. In public ( comment, lol ). And this wonderful woman took pity on me and told me she would send me a little something. Boy, did I feel guilty for making such a silly comment! But not quite guilty enough to refuse her gift ( I felt sure she knew by then that I like to joke around ). And today my " little something" arrived. The postman had left the package in the porch in the afternoon without knocking, and my DH found it on his way out. He came back in, grinned at me and asked me whether I was waiting for........ thats as far as he got, lol, I squeeled and just shouted - is it from the US? Woohooo, its from Judy, isn't it? Of course he thought I was completely bonkers. Nothing new there really.
I was in the middle of finishing off some sewing, but I just couldn't wait, I had to unwrap immediately. So the photos are straight foward, no nice arrangements, but then with something as gorgeous as this, it wasn't necessary anyway.
Look, could a confirmed tea drinker get a better gift than this? The most fabulous felted and embellished tea cosy -
Isn't it just utterly charming and brillant? I am sure it will make my cup of tea taste even better!
Judy also sent me a really pretty flower brooch. Have you ever tried to take a photograph of yourself wearing a brooch, lol? I had to take about 20 pics before I got one usable one. Where are all my men when I need them? I think this brooch will look really good on a white t-shirt in the summer -
And these two gorgeous gifts, which were most definitely rather more than " a little something ", were accompanied by this very English tag. It made a chuckle, it was so perfect, the crown for the Queen, the London stamp, so well thought out and beautifully done, on both sides!
Thank you so much, Judy, it was such a pleasure opening your package and such a wonderful surprise. It was a very lovely thing to do. Blogger friends are the best! xxx
