A Lovely Package


My A Lovely Package surprise arrived yesterday – and I feel awful as I haven’t even posted mine yet {today – I promise!}. But you have to see the amazing the little collection of gifts I received from Annabel at Fragmented Splendour -                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

She sent me a beautiful little turquoise and gold necklace from her jewellery making – I have it on right now and love it!

A uber cute little boat brooch – these old fashioned sailing boats are my favourite type to see out on the water.
Some crocheted snowflakes – how on earth she knew I’d been lusting after crochet snowflakes since Lizzy bought be a book on them {I know I should have made them myself by now, but they look uber complicated. I started one but it confused me!}
And some pom pom bunting. I think the lacey one might be my favourite. These will definitely be up in the house!

I feel a little self-conscious about the package I have sent her now as it is no where near as cute - in fact it is far from 'cute' but I was really happy with it {And I just hope it arrives in one piece. I did use bubble wrap but after wrapping I could hear some clinking – I am not sure writing fragile on things works does it?}

You would also not believe the strange looks people at work give you when you tell them you’ve done a blog gift swap.
