I don’t have a wishlist this Wednesday, but as I’ve been the lucky recipient of lots of lovely parcels recently I thought I’d write about those instead.
First up was a lovely package from my friend Jayne. This parcel made me laugh and grin ear-to-ear as those two photos you can see are of my niece and nephew (her dogs, Anna and Harvey) and the photos have got letters from them on the back! She also enclosed some lovely squares of fabric which I’m in the midst of using for a project (more on that next week…)
Next up there was a birthday present from my Secret Friend* which took me completely by surprise (my birthday isn’t until the 16th and this arrived in the middle of last week).
A gorgeous gift bag from The Eden Project, containing freshly ground coffee, a fab mug, and a coffee plant! The plant is now nestled on my bathroom windowsill and I’m following the cultivation instructions very carefully so that I don’t kill it.
Last, but not least, I got another parcel from Jayne this afternoon. She’s been very naughty and bought me a beautiful mug from Alex Clark, which I do love (although it doesn’t make her any less naughty for spoiling me!). The mug is packaged in a great tin too so I’ll be working out what to stash in that later
*I’m taking part in a great swap this year where each participant is allocated a Secret Friend. You send various surprises to your SF throughout the year, and receive bits and pieces in turn. It’s great!
