Aren't I lucky? I've had three parcels in as many days and it's not my birthday for another two weeks! My internet friends are just as special as my real-life friends.
First up was a beautiful embellished Indian scarf from the lovely Louise at Princess Prudence Diaries.
Here she is standing in front of her dream Moggy when we met at Coventry Classic Car Show.
Then gorgeous Kel at Hair Advice And All Things Nice suggested we had a jewellery swap as we've both got huge collections.
Here she is!
And here's my haul. Kel's should be on the way to Bedford right now.
And I received a mammoth parcel from my darling Helga this morning:
A shirt for Jon and a 1960's tunic for me
A New Zealand interiors magazine, opaque tights (how did she know I needed green ones? Because she's my freaky twin, of course), books for my hols, Maori playing cards, ethnic earrings, a handmade Ganesh pendant and a Swamp Donkey CD - filthy and marvellous! There were some Pineapple Lumps but I ate them all.
I've joined Liz at Rose & Bird's challenge to do something creative every day this week so I made this bag out of a vintage curtain for a friend's Mum. I've also made an unholy mess in the bedroom, does that count?
