There is nothing quite so wonderful as coming home to a surprise parcel. A little while ago I was lucky enough to win a giveaway over at Kitty's cafe and it arrived today.
The excitement level was high as I gazed at this box of goodies from Canada. I could barely get near it for children wanting to see what was contained within, but I managed. The first sight was this lovely blue paisley case, perfect for having my latest project by my side.
A quick unclip to reveal layers of lavender coloured tissue paper and a cream card.
The card was an almost exact replica of Peri my darling Tonk.
The whole package smelt wonderful scented by the lemon and lavender soap which had been included along with a fantastic selection of teas.
I am looking forward to tasting these over the next few days along with the raspberry chocolates, which I have already started to eat and can testify that they are simply delicious.
Then I get to my free gift. It is just so sweet.
I love the projects and the perfect tote sized cards they are printed on,
but I can't stop gazing at the red circular needle and the red darning needle, all in a dinky zip lock case.
It almost makes me want to sew up a project just so I can use the darning needle.
I feel totally spoilt and very special, so a huge, huge thank you to Elizabeth at Kitty Cafe for making my day. I just want you to know that I will enjoy all the gifts and will especially treasure the card.
