I love gifts

Jo, an old friend of mine who now lives in the UK sent me a surprise gift last week. How exciting! It was completely out of the blue and for no special occasion (don’t I have the loveliest friends?)

Needless to say, on fetching the parcel, I could hardly wait to get home and rip it open. I was not disappointed – Jo had picked out all the perfect bits and bobs and put them together in a really beautifully co-ordinated gift.

My parcel contained a sweet little sparkly bird ring, a gorgeous multi-colored bird garland, the perfect size tea mug and a matching little gardening bag, and then, best of all, 2 handmade decorations for my Christmas tree. Jo had gone to such trouble to create the sweetest dainty clothes peg lady and an adorable wooly owl. They are devine!

I absolutely love my gift and knowing someone so far away went to so much trouble to put together such an exciting gift really is very special.
Thank you Jo, you are an angel!

    Yay! It looks so nice, you are such a good stylist! I’m so glad you liked everything, it was so much fun picking out bits for you and thinking of you when I went shopping ;-) Now get your butt over this side of the world so I can go shopping with my fellow magpie!
