That is because I finally got my little mitts on some gorgeous velvet millinery flowers, woohoo! In god knows how many years of going to bootfairs and charity shops, I have never found a single old hat with lots of beautiful flowers on. NEVER. I saw a couple once at a proper antiques fair, but at £45 each, way out of my price range.
Yesterday, I was looking through my blog reading list, and came across a post by Angela, the English Romantic, where she was showing little velvet flowers she had embellished with beautiful embroidery. And she quite casually mentioned that she had those darling little velvet flowers for sale! Guess how quickly I sent her an email, lolol. Lightning ain't got nothing on me, girls!
Anyhoo, this darling girl not only put up with my overexcitedness, sent the flowers I had asked for straight away to arrive THE NEXT MORNING, but she also enclosed the sweetest gift. I'll show ya, shall I?
The flowers -
The sweetly packaged gift -
See, thats why I am a very happy bunny. Thank you so much, Angela!!!
I wrote this post yesterday, and scheduled it for today, because I had already done one post, and come on, two posts in one day from me would be just too much, right? Anyhoo, by the time you read this, we we will be driving through France on the way to our cottage.
