Thank you Mary Poppins!
I received such a lovely parcel of goodies from Mary Poppins this morning, which helped to lift me out of a very bad morning indeed. Just look at the wonderful packaging... recognise it! I love the way that Cath Kidston paper is printed on both sides. And in among those wonderful packages were 3 truffle chocolate bunnies (which the little Laces loved, and said huge thank yous for...as sweets outside a Saturday are very rare for them), together with cinder toffee (yum, have I mentioned my love of a crunchie bar a few times!!!!!), AND with jelly beans. Lovely goodies!
The little heart really touched me deeply. It says 'I believe in you'. Believe me, it came at a very good time, because I certainly haven't believed in me for a couple of days. Thank you - that meant so much. I'm keeping it very close to me atm.
The heart is resting on a wonderful vintage pillowcase. I had these as a child, but although I've got the sheets, I haven't picked up the pillowcases yet. Thank you for that - it also made me blub, because it was so thoughtful.
And a rose linen T-towel. Too good to use as a T-towel, methinks!
More? Yep, MaryPoppins has spoilt me rotten. Just look at these goodies. The napkins are wonderful, and I even have a decoupaged card. I want to know how you got it so neat! And a lovely handbag compact mirror. And CK stationery and stickers. And lots of card pretties, which I'll have great fun using. And wonderful gift tags (on blue backing) - how did you make them?! They are so pretty.
There's more!!!! I got this fabulous cushion, beautifully wrapped in a pink ribbon.
It's so beautifully wrapped, I don't want to take the ribbon off. And the stitching is so perfect.
If that's your first attempt, I won't ever post a picture of my first attempt!!!
And more... a rose picture frame with a special poem. Together with some lovely stickers.
MaryPoppins, you have made me cry today. Thank you so much for all the thought and care you put into my swap. I'm frankly overwhelmed by the support I've found in blogging. And it lifts me everytime I found myself sinking down. xxx
I was also very lucky in winning Lajoni's giveaway. Just look at the lovely package...
I've lost the picture of the beautiful frame inside...will take another and post soon. Lajoni, do you mind if I post your photo, as you so kindly left it in the frame?! x
Finally, I made another of those bags...
I think this one will be heading to ebay, to try and help feed my fabric addiction. Feeding what is becoming an obsession is proving increasingly hard!
I'm so sorry I haven't got back to you all for your wonderful comments on my last post. They meant so much. I've just had a really bad couple of days. You all say such lovely things. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and to comment.
