A Parcel from Dollydollop

Thankyou all for your lovely positive comments on my last post about setting up shop. It really gave me the confidence and the boost I needed, and I have made a decision :: I will be setting up a little blogshop, just need to get everything sorted out first. For those of you who were wondering what name I picked, I wont reveal it til I have everything organised, but I have been making more floral brooches so if anyone is interested in owning one of them they will be going on sale soon. How exciting!

In other news I recieved a lovely surprise parcel today from Claire at Dollydollop who sent me some very pretty and very thoughtful goodies...want a peek?

When you have a Cath Kidston label on your parcel you know its gonna be good inside!!

Wrapped up with pretty lilac ricrac and a little tag...

Inside were all these gorgeous goodies, I am a very lucky girl!

Tiny little Union Jack heart brooch handmade by Claire herself. This is so cute I am never going to take it off.

A vintage embroidered pillowcase in very pretty springy colours...

Ribbons, ricrac and lacey edging to for me to play with. I love ribbon so was very pleased to see this little lot!

And lastly a M&S Union Jack bag which I may or may not customise a bit (I am thinking brooches!!)

Thankyou so much Claire for a lovely surprise, it is all so thoughtful and I am very grateful indeedy! You are a lovely and very special ShabbyChic friend :) X
