IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!
Two parcels from overseas in one week.
Just look at these gorgeous works of art from Karen at Bluemuf and Catie at Catien & Co.
It is sooooooooooo exciting getting parcels from afar, and the fun of opening them - I always feel like a small child again, the anticipation and everything that goes with receiving mail.
The first to arrive was from dear Karen at Bluemuf -just look at the lovely stickers on the envelope!
And finally the most delightful dress that Karen made for me. On beautiful crisp white card, with red cord, sparkly stones and petite beads, this is truly gorgeous and I just love it.
Thank you dear Karen.
A few days later another parcel arrived, this time from Catie at Catien & Co - if you pop over to Rachael's latest posting at The Rose Room you can see more of what was inside.
Catie so generously sent a selection of fantastic goodies for us to play with, plus this awesome gown!!,
Beautifully crafted on Vintage wall paper, and laden with the most gorgeous JEWELS, all complimenting the colour of the paper that Catie used.
Thank you Catie, this is truly amazing
Receiving such lovely dresses has more than compensated for my awful week, brought on entirely by myself.
I very foolishly put my name down at a huge local Hardware Warehouse for casual work counting items for their stock take.
mmmm!! My poor back, hands, in fact every limb is still aching from crouching down, bending and trying to be enthusiastic as I counted and bagged Coach Bolts, Washers, Screws, Nails, Sandpaper used for grinders etc-
I can hardly believe that there are hundreds of varieties of items for the building industry, and to add insult the hourly rate was pathetic.
A huge learning curve maybe, but not one I will be in a hurry to repeat.
