Clever Lyn must have phoned santa and found out that chocolate coins are always a stocking essential for me!
Now, I wasn't entirely sure if i was supposed to open the parcels right away or wait until christmas?
This little felt pouch wasn't wrapped, so it was clearly fair game to open it!
And i could half see through the tissue paper of this parcel. It looked like christmas cards so I thought I had better open it as well...
Yay christmas ladybird illustrations! I am sooooooo not giving these away, they are destined for my wire heart card holder!
And then i remembered spying this post and, hmmmm
Yipee, I was right! it was a bunting shaped package! And, as you can imagine, by that time I was on a bit of a roll, so I decided to go ahead and open the rest of the parcels!
fabric star decoration, cute polka dot notebook, and chocolates (that are sadly no longer with us...)
Pretty pretty pretty ribbon brooch
And twit-twoo, a little knitted owl! What a cutie!
Thank you so much Lyn, I love my first christmas present of 2009! I literally cannot wait to hang that bunting! not long now, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaay yipeeeee yayayayayayayay (overexcited overgrown child noises)
I am off to do some wrapping now so I can post a special parcel tomorrow.... am I allowed to put on christmas music yet?

I heart sticky labels at the moment. How much greater is this little blanket, just cos of the little sticky label that was on it - "crocheted by a 90 year old lady"
One of my greatest thrills in life is riffling through an old button box (I'm sure you blog ladies understand!)
What i like even more than the pretty buttons are the random little 'treasures' that inevitably seem to find their way into button boxes. I am quite sure I must have been a magpie in a former life...
