The Sweetness of Blog Pals

I have been blessed by some special parcels in the mail this past week. The treasures inside certainly made up for the dull op shopping I've experienced of late.

Tam of A Treasured Past sent me a glorious selection of goodies, as she is known to do....all just my cup of tea too. I was especially excited about the beautiful stamp pendant. Tam shared the stamp on her Facebook page a while ago, & I was swooning over the colours & design. I didn't think it was possible for a stamp to be so pretty. So I squeed with excitement, & have been planning my outfits around the necklace for the past week. Tam has some amazing handmade pieces over at her Etsy store....so many wonderful styles & designs, & the quality is impressive.
Thank you for spoiling me Tam. Xx

1975 Arbor Day stamp from Israel on a silver necklace
Utter perfection!

Kitsch owl alert

I seem to have a little collection of bird egg cups now. 

A cheeky elephant & a small framed cross-stitch, which fits right in with the bird theme around our house.

Sweet Vanessa of Two Squirrels sent me this wee parcel as a thank you for the package I sent for her birthday. I adore the handmade hair clip, which she stocks at their Milton shop. 

And finally, Carmel from Make Mine Mid Century over at Instagram posted a photo of a Hornsea coffee set that sat languishing at her place, & she wanted to pass it onto a new home. I do like a bit of Hornsea so I was the lucky recipient. I love the design of the Bronte range, & the Captain is keen to drink his coffee in those cups.
Thank you Carmel! Xx

Thank you ladies for all of the above, & thank YOU my readers for your comments & friendship.
The small world of blogging has brought me more then I'd ever imagined.
Love & blessings. Xx
