i have been a very lucky lady recently.......
this first prize is one that i loved as soon as i saw it but had no idea how important it would become in my everyday life!!!
this gorgeous little tweedy hottie is from this lovely lady - FIELDY
now - this is no ordinary hottie - not only does it sit tucked up in my bed waiting for me, but it also joins me tucked inside my coat, every evening , in the dead of the night, when i make the final check on the sheep and ponies before bed.
it is the perfect size and looks wonderful when not being cuddled!
i feel that i need a stash of these for when guests come to stay at Sea House - what could be nicer than a walk in the hills with a hottie tucked up in your coat and the promise of a meal straight out of the Rayburn on your return......
hurry up and arrive Autumn - here in the Highlands we are still waking up each day to brilliant sunshine and very little rain - i can however feel the nights becoming a little cooler, which is why my hottie has become such a faithful friend.
i love the items that appear from the hands of this talented lady - the colours and textures are so beautiful and everything that appears on her blog is an item that i could happily find a home for.
my other wonderful package arrived from a fellow blogger that i have never met but so wish that i could...
we all have virtual friends that just seem to touch a place in our soul that others do not - this is one of mine - Pebbledash
i have never been the sort of person that buys really good quality paper for letter writing, to be honest i have always just grabbed a card from my shop...
then this package of delights arrived - the quality and feel of these cards and tags are beautiful, you do just want to hold them and never write a word upon them.
they made me feel the need to rush out and buy a fountain pen, as using a Biro would be just awful!
also inside this generous parcel was a pack of hand printed tissue paper - i will admit it now Diana - this paper will never be used - it is just too beautiful!!!
......and the sweetest little handmade book - look at how perfect it is for me :)
after carefully unwrapping all these goodies, and can i just say this lady knows how to wrap a parcel - each item snuggled inside tissue with the neatest corners i have ever seen and each with a hand stamped sticker........
** sigh **
i came to my last gift - a tiny package with a red heart stamped upon it - i had no idea what it could be.......
my heart leapt when i looked inside
such a simple thing but so delicate, beautiful and so me!!
i have a passion for Sea Glass that i cannot explain - i have gathered it for years at every opportunity - squirreling it away with no idea what i will do with it apart from look at it
this little piece will never be tucked away, it will remain out on show where i can constantly be reminded of who it came from....
someone that i have never met
someone that has the kindest soul
someone that will never realise how much the note that she sent a few days after this parcel means to me....
thank you Diana so very much
