You have mail!


Don't you just love getting mail?! I do.

I skipped all the way  back to the office after lunch today.  I had just collected some lovely mail at the PO Box.  Yay!

I love receiving  mail. So exciting. It just does not happen very much these days. A lovely letter or card from faraway friends or, like today, a lovely little parcel!

I get so excited about opening up a parcel.  It is even more of a treat when someone has gone to the trouble to wrap it so sweetly!

I love to take my time when unwrapping a parcel.  To enjoy the details and savour the moment so to speak.  I think this is because I love pretty papers and ribbons and such things. I really love wrapping a little parcel for someone special. I think it makes the joy of giving and receiving so much more special.  Don't you?



How gorgeous are my little brooches. I was so spoilt by the lovely Rosie. I only ordered one, technically, however generous gorgeous Rosie sent me three! I adore them.

I am a bit of a fan as you can tell. I love her range of vintage style brooches and hair clips and slides.  I have quite a stash at home and now have these three lovelies to add to my collection. I was drawn to her gorgeous hand made work years ago at a little favourite store of mine. The packaging is divine. I love the creative designs she uses for her beautiful packaging.
I am looking forward to some upcoming Christmas markets where she will be.  If you don't live where I live then you can order from her online store.

Thanks Rosie I love all three.  You are so sweet  xox
