a give away

I was very lucky to be the winner of Laura of the very lovely ‘cute as a button‘ give away in January.

The parcel arrived with a pretty spotty tape decoration to the wrapping, it was almost a shame to unwrap it. When I did, though, I found lots of lovely things nestled in shredded brown paper.  There seemed to be so many more jewels in the box than I recalled from the give away. I enjoyed a few iced gems with a cup of coffee before I pored over everything in the box.

Decorative pegs now, a fabric coursage, beads, buttons, a badge, egg cosy, little bells and a tasty jar of iced gems!

All so delightful and it felt soooo very much like christmas all over again.

It seemed that as I lifted each item out of the box, another equally lovely thing was revealed,

The ripple crochet scarf goes perfectly with my green jacket and I wore it that very day.

The pictures speak for themselves and everything is beautifully made and joyful to receive.

I was so delighted with it and loved enjoying someone else’s makes so much that I am inspired to do the same thing myself and I will do a give away too.

So before too many more blogs and as soon as I have had time to decide what would be appropriate as a give away, I will be posting a give away blog.
