I've been really lucky with my post in the last two days! And both treats were totally unexpected which made them even more enjoyable!
Yesterday I went to pick up the usual collection of bills and bank statements (and multiple catalogues of course!) and discovered this beauty amongst them:
It was from Kate and she sent it to thank me for hosting the Valentine's Swap!
Thank you so much Kate!
I've always admired fabric postcards but never actually received one so I was delighted to get one and so touched that Kate had thought of sending me it.
It's so fab that you can actually post them without an envelope - they look so lovely amongst all the boring post!
Then today I came home to another bit of "interesting post"
This fabulous corsage from Gina to wear for our Bloggers Convention at the Country Living Spring Fair. I absolutely love it and have enjoyed wearing it today but don't worry Gina I have taken it off now and put it somewhere safe ready for March 14th!!!!
After reading about everyone's fantastic gingerbread houses at Christmas and eating some of BIG sister Ally's, I couldn't resist this "lazy cheat's" gingerbread train kit when it was a fraction of the original price in John Lewis earlier this month.
Mr Locket and the Little Lockets decorated it although I think more sweets and icing went in their mouths than on the gingerbread! Now I've just got to keep their hands off it until after supper!
Finally, a little sneak preview of one of the things I have been making for Challenge No.4. - I know it's not quite what I said I was going to do (although I've done some of them too) but you will have to wait a bit longer for the full display!
