pretty parcel in the post

Last week I was delighted to receive a pretty little parcel in the post.

I was one of the lucky winners of the recent Silly Old Suitcase giveaway.  A surprise package of treasures from the lovely Maartje.

Maartje put together a gorgeous gift for me, all packaged prettily with a handwritten note.

My parcel of treasures included,

a button brooch,
a wooden crochet hook,
a crochet bow brooch,
a flower necklace,
pretty fabric pieces,
and scrapbooking supplies.

I am feeling a little spoilt and so grateful for the thought and care that went into my gift.

I want to say a big thank you to Maartje.  I can't wait to get creative with my new supplies and I have already worn the pretty button brooch and necklace.

Maartje has a beautiful etsy shop also called Silly Old Suitcase.  It is well worth a visit.  She makes gorgeous things.  Maartje is on holiday at the moment but will reopen soon.


I'm off out after tea to a handmade christmas class.  I can't wait.  How easily amused am I?
