Spoilt Rotten!

One of my simple pleasures in life is receiving mail (nice mail, not the 'bill' variety!) from the postie. I've been a 'mail-lover' since I was a little girl - as soon as I could write!
And, I have been such a lucky girl this week. Today, three packages arrived for me!!

The first was my gorgeous little book that I bought from Bexx. So tiny and perfectly made .. and my favourite colour too!
The next was a super-sweet surprise from lovely Helen from ruby2gogo. She sent me a gorgeous pouch (love the fabric!) for my newly bought bracelet (similar to this one) and a fantastic 'Wonderwoman' ring!! woo hoo :D All packaged up so nicely. Thank you Helen.

My third parcel was a great pack of goodies that I won from the lovely Jess at 'Button Beauty' (I thought I was one of those people who never wins anything!! so glad I was wrong!!) I am so lucky in winning her gorgeous pack of goodies. I was gob-smacked at Jess's generosity - she included vintage pillowcases, vintage tea-towel, op-shop Eskimo place-mats (so cool!), yarn, fabric pieces, vintage trim, seeds for our garden, fair trade chocolate and a great apron she made herself! Thanks again Jess!

Wow! Lucky me :) I'm so inspired to get into my sewing now with these beautiful fabrics and the ones I got from Bec too. I'm off to bury myself in my stash! ;)

How fun! And Jess at Button Beauty was very generous indeed! This post made me smile, Ali! :)

Wow - so much gorgeousness in one post!! That book is so beautiful, and how cool to get a Wonder Woman ring as well as your bracelet!!!! And how generous is Jess!!! Actually she even contacted me wanting to send me something for putting you onto her blog - so thanks for mentioning me!!! I really do love this blogging/crafting community - so many nice things coming and going around all the time :)

Oops, and I meant to say that I finally thanked you on my blog for the award you gave me eons ago....I just did a big catch-up post (and I think I am now in the running for the 'world's longest post' award :P)
Sorry it took me so long....:)

Wow! All we get in the mail is bills. What a lovely lot of loot you received. I am truly envious of your beautiful little book, not to mention the Wonderwoman ring!
