A SUPRISE GIFT

Today we got home after a short + unexpected few days in Ireland (sadly for a funeral) + I had this lovely package waiting for me from Lynn + Stella....now I maybe should have waited one more week to open it but I was too excited!

I am now the proud owner of this cute felt needlecase....a Florence Hope original no less + I'm delighted to have a piece of their work! (In my favourite colour combination pink + green!)

Thank you so much ladies for my pressie....I love it :)

I decided to treat myself to one of Camilla's calendars for 2007. She has the sweetest little gift tags to download from her blog at the moment too + I can't wait to use them on the parcels we'll be giving to the little ones this Christmas!

Hope that everyone who is preparing for Christmas is more on the ball than me! I have a million + 1 things to do/sew/decorate/shop for + wrap....so best get back to it before we head back to Ireland on Friday! x

We're glad you love it!

By Christams morning everything will be done and sorted and if it isn't it won't matter by then!

We all put ourseleves under so much pressure. I have a dream of going to a remote Island and having a few days of simple living....one day

What a very lovely present. Don't worry about being the only one with a million and one things to do. I can tell you you're not the only one. But everything that really needs doing will get done.

What a nice gift - and made all the more special to return home from a sad outing to a nice surprise. I don't think anyone is ever 100% ready for Christmas - except maybe Santa!!!!!!! (He is real isn't he?!)
