An actual, genuine, handwritten piece of mystery mail for me. Not a unwanted bill, not an uncalled for circular and not even a delightful, but ordered-by-me-and-not-really-that-surprising package. None of those things, how terribly exciting!
It wasn't until I read the little letter inside that I remembered that I had been lucky enough to win my first ever bloggy give-away and this unexpected delight was my prize.
You'll of course want to see what my good fortune brought me, and I want to show you because I'm so, so happy with and pleased with them.
First was a beautiful ring and ear-ring set with the most delicate and delightful white roses.
But that was not all. I also received a charming deep red felt broach.
It's like getting a wonderful un-birthday present. Which, if you know your Alice, you will know is the kind of present you get when it isn't your birthday!
And who do I have to thank for this generosity? My thanks go, in great heaped spadefuls to darling Alison of Heavenly Handmades. Who made all of these beauties with her own fair and talented hands. I only discovered her blog recently as she signed up to join my PCH project and I'm so glad I did.
Thank you so much Alison. I'm tremendously grateful to you and ridiculously happy with my new things. All of which I am wearing at this very moment!
Till next time...
