Inside was this lovely tin - I love the design and those greens will look great in my kitchen - if I can decide that it would be better there than in my craft room (junk room perhaps would be more accurate but craft room sounds better!).
Also in the package were these beautiful coathangers covered with a lovely Liberty fabric - I will enjoy using those. Sadly I seem to have photographed them from the back as on the other side of each was a tiny pearl button.
A chocolate scented candle that smells good enough to eat - I wonder if I can be persuaded to light it?! And some vintage labels - perhaps I will use those in my scrapbooking or for another project - I can't wait!
Then yesterday yet another big parcel arrived - this time I didn't need to fetch it as we were at home when the postman delivered. This time it was from Liz at Lululiz in Lalaland and again was all beautifully wrapped in different coloured tissue paper. I felt as if Christmas had arrived early as I opened the numerous little packages and the oohs and aaahs came thick and fast!
This package too had a pretty card with it and contained such an array of goodies I hope my photos can do them justice! This colourful striped cloth, and some facial polisher (need a bit of that I can tell you!)
A pretty embroidered traycloth along with some fabulous crystal beads, some velvet ribbon (is that from your recently acquired stash Liz? If so double thank you for parting with any of it!) some pretty braid, some fun pink spotted ribbon, some super chunky white buttons and a flower corsage with such a lovely centre!
These lovely scraps of vintage fabrics all in lovely toning shades and a length of beautiful old lace
A crochet doiley, pretty lavender sachet made in some lovely vintage French fabric, some daisies, some pretty delicate lace on a little card and a big green button which would be great as a fastener for a bag or on a chunky knitted cardi. Can see those fabrics and lace flowers, ribbons etc along with some of the beads all being incorporated into a piece of my crazy patchwork
Last but by no means least such a pretty plate - I adore it - together with a piece of Liz's hand made soap and all with a beautiful hand made tote bag with appliqued doggie - isn't he great?!
To you Liz a huge Thank you too.
As this is my 60th post I feel I should reciprocate in some way so watch this space as I am planning my own giveaway - though I doubt I will be offering quite such beautiful varied parcels as Wendy and Liz. Must dash now but I will put my thinking cap on and maybe with my 61st post will have an offer you can't afford to miss!!
