Well the answer is this beautiful neat parcel, courtesy of Sophie of Chez-Sophie as part of Sew Scrumptious flower swap. I really thought I was having a second, or is that 'official' birthday.
Inside the brown paper was a box covered in pretty pink tissue..
and inside this a very stylish box
But only when I opened this did I realise what a treasure trove I had received.
It was more like a Tardis than a parcel. How Sophie managed to squeeze so many goodies into it I don't know.
And what were my lovely treasures....Well I hope you have plenty of time
pretty lavender sachets
A handbag tissue holder complete with tissues (must have heard about the scruffy packets littering all my handbags)
A piece of fabulous fabric ..Now what can I make with that?.. for me of course
A rose patterned make up bag containing.....
A great big flump (that won't last long)
A pack of pretty playing cards
Flowery cleaning cloths..too pretty to use!
3 packets of poppy seeds..absolutely love them..
And finally the most exquisite vintage scarf - again with poppies as well as cornflowers, blue tits and robins and the prettiest retro style pinny which I will wear with pride. My daughter has already ogled it!! Not a chance!
All in all an amazing haul
So thank you Sophie for such a wonderful swap, I haven't stopped grinning yet and my family are most impressed.
I would also like to thank Louise for arranging it and for all her hard work getting us organised.
Oh and Sophie we are taking a cottage in France this year and I will be packing my scarf to go with my red,white and blue (I know such a cliche) wardrobe..
Tres chic n'est ce pas!
And now O no! I have to do it all again. Off to finish my Tilda swap, catch up again soon
Bye lovely friends
