'Cos the postman never calls this many times at any other time of the year!

I have been overwhelmed by the generosity and thought of  these lovely bloggers, (and I need another room to display all the lovely stuff I keep receiving)

First of all thank you to Craftysmiles. Aija did a giveaway and sent me these lovely things for being her 10th follower! How nice is that.

A real treasure chest of goodies

A sweet  little book all about pansies, the pictures are great showing how the pansy has been used both for decoration and medecine over the years. Full of interesting facts and hints of how to use them.

A  little leather purse holding this great pendant necklace ( how did she know half my wardrobe is this colour)

Pretty handmade soap

seeds...and I can eat the flowers and use the leaves for tea!

A lovely fat quarter of fabric...umm I can think of a project about to begin....

And last but not least the ever welcome CK.

Thank you thank you Aija, everything is lovely...............

I then received these from Sals Snippets

I am ashamed to say that I didn't even know I had won this. So how surprised was I to receive an email asking me for my address. I do try to read as many posts as possible but sometimes it's just impossible to keep up!

The beautiful little needlecase pocket is adorned with a pretty corsage and a dainty hat pin (perfect for when I get my 40s hat made)

Tucked inside were these gorgeous fabrics..I wish I had several metres of some of them, they would make superb vintage style dresses.....I need to look at Sals site again!!

And then there was this little scented sachet with the most exquisite embroidery..

Thank you very much Sal I am very lucky to receive such pretty things.

And so to both of you I would like to send these roses, some of natures most beautiful treasures for the treasures you have sent me.

Thank you Aija x

Thank you Sal x

Well as I said in my last post I was off to several CBs this weekend, although the one at Wetherby turned out to be an Antique and collectible the pouring rain....! so I will post some piccies of my finds later in the week.
Enjoy the reast of the weekend, wherever you are
