Well that has happened to me twice lately.
Firstly Lara of thornberry sent me the most amazing scarf - a work of art. This is me - perfectly. red - my favourite colour and kind of unusual-just like me!!!
The most amazing thing about this is that Lara doesn't even "know" me in the traditional sense. We read each others blogs and share a love of chenille but we have never met.
Lara , for no reason, sent me this beautiful scarf and it is my most favourite all time ever scarf (I own about 20 so I know what I talk about when we speak scarf.)
I want to say a thousand thank yous to you Miss Lara -pop over and see it in all its glory here.
That's me about 2 seconds after I unwrapped it -school bags in the background - junk on the bench. What great styling !!!
More recently I was a winner on the Lino Forest blog. If you have not visited you must go there right now and have a look. Betty Jo has the most unique creations - I know that word is bandied around in blog land quite a lot but it is true. I received this most exquisite brooch.
It is quirky and vintage and is just so cheerful and beautifully crafted - please go and take a look.
I adore it !!! Seriously. Just like my scarf , I wore this to work to rave reviews!!!! So a thousand thank you also. With gifts like these people at work are going to start raising their fashion-expectations of me.
With my 100th post coming up I am looking forward to being able to pay some of this great feeling and gratitude forward, so four posts to go!
Have you ever received a perfect gift ?
