So who recognises the beautiful bundle in this picture? Anybody who reads Swirly's blog will have seen a photo very similar to this a few days ago. It was a mystery present that she was sending out to some lucky person but she wouldn't reveal who.
And now you can see that I was the lucky mystery recipient. So do you want to see what was in it?... Here you go then..
It's a magical sticker maker. Dear Miss Swirls is currently having a whale of a time making fab stickers from repurposed papers and selling them on etsy. They are fantastic. She has been posting about the fun she's having with the machine in her blog and I happened to comment that I'd love one. Can you imagine...? I never for a minute expected her to send me one. I just hope I'm not betraying all her trade secerets now :0( by showing the machine.
As well as the fab gadget, she sent me some little flower stickers in an envelope, another card for my keepsakes pinboard and a great button ring (which I'm wearing now).
God!! My hands look so wrinkly! That's what too much sun does for you! I've always loved my hands when they're brown but now I'm paying the price. Sometimes seeing a photo of something that you look at every day changes how you see it, don't you think? It's like seeing your face in the mirror every day and then seeing a photo of yourself. You look so different in the photo but that's the way everyone else sees you.
But I digress.
My post today is purely to say a huge THANK YOU to Lynsey for my totally unexpected but totally out of this world present. Keep watching the post Mrs S. It's payback time!!!
