Good, good things came in the post this week.
This beautiful embroidery kit arrived from all the way across the pond in what seemed like no time at all, from Alicia Paulson's Posie Gets Gozy blog and shop.
A box of brownies arrived, from a sweet and lovely friend over at ohabigail (thank you, lovely girl). I am pleased to report that they are totally amazing; chocolatey but not overly so (which I like) divinely crisp on top and moist in the middle. They were so beautifully packaged too. I do love it when things are nicely packaged, it makes the receiving and unwrapping so much more fun.
I recently ordered a mount to frame some cards I bought from Liberty while I was in London. They caught my eye and said buy me, buy me, even though they were £5 each, which is a ludicrous amount of money to spend on a greetings card. But I love the colours and the illustrations, and since I was under the Liberty spell and planned to put them on the wall, I bought them. One for each member of our little family, with the initial of each of our first names.
Of course the post-person (ours is a lady) also delivered a council tax bill, water rates bill and bank statement this week, so it's not all fun.
