Ooh, the box I hummed and haaed about buying from Heidi at her open house. My sister dissuaded me - the crafty minx!
and inside the lovely box..... an even lovelier surprise. Tea cups and plates that I am sure Anne struggled to part with given her serious addiction to china.
another gift box full of little treasures
Sumptuous slipper socks, hand made buttons, lovely silver earrings and two skeins of Debbie Bliss Andes silk... bliss indeed. The lovely little box of silks and scissors was from my Mum.
Drool ... Jane Brocket's lovely Quilt-Making book from sis
The pictures are just fabulous and I want to make them all
Now this was just plain mean of Anne ... a book of calorie laden cup cake recipes!
I smell sabotage!
Not only gorgeous recipes and pictures but inspirational ideas too!
Much sisterly love going on here - not only did Anne give me the tea set but she also parted with some of her vintage crochet in the form of embellishment on a beautiful hand made cushion.
Gorgeous gloves from my Mum
and the piece de resistance from my sis (given to me on Boxing Day as she was stressing about getting it finished in time for Christmas Day)
|Love, love, love it!|
I was very spoilt with lots more gifts including a gorgeous night shirt from the White Company from the boys - it's almost too pretty to wear in bed. My Mum gave me some money too which I have spent on a sumptuous silk and velvet scarf - can't photograph it as it's so glossy it just looks like a shiny blob in the photos :( and a CK bag on sale. I'm saving these for my date with Mr Darcy once he's recovered from the work out Amanda has given him.
I'm happy to report that every single one of my Christmas Presents fit me perfectly!!
Hope you are having a good week. It's over the hump day today - hoorah!
