A Treasured Parcel

I received a wonderful box of goodies this week from the lovely Tam of A Treasured Past.  I felt like a kid on Christmas morning unwrapping each parcel, & I was blown away by her kindness. I LOVE every single's funny that someone could know my tastes so well when we've never met in the flesh. I was so excited to have a couple of Tam's handmade creations too. She makes the most beautiful jewellery with vintage stamps, & she gave me some gorgeous handmade hair clips, & a green button necklace. 
You can check out her jewellery range on Tam's blog & also on her facebook page. Tam has an amazing collection of vintage treasures. I love reading her blog & seeing glimpses of her home & the interesting things she finds.

A funky retro owl for my kitchen

An old herb cannister

A vintage touristy napkin ring

Bird notebook & gift tag

Some pretty pages from an old book

A sweet deer children's book

A divine framed ballet dancer needlepoint which is now in our bedroom

Funky green first pinny style one

Green fabric bag which is a super handy size

A chunky goldtone bracelet.

A wee plastic deer to add to my collection. It belonged to Tam when she was a little girl. How special is that!

Beads, beads & more beads.....Yes please!!!

LOVE the green choker beads, rosary beads & white bangles

Thank you so much Tam for brightening my day. It means the world to me. Xx
