I was very lucky recently to win a giveaway hosted by Michele of Cowboys and Custard. I love the idea of giveaways and have entered many, so I was thrilled to have won this one. Frustratingly the postman delivered the parcel on Monday afternoon when I was out, so I made a trip to the sorting office on Tuesday morning - I was there at 6am prompt!
I barely made it through the door before starting to open the parcel - then I remembered - Photos! So I carefully packaged it up again (well, partly) so that I could share my excitement (and a couple of surprises) with you.
Inside the parcel was this very stylish package (wrapped much more neatly originally!). The first surpise was that Michele had used vintage wallpaper to wrap the outer parcel, which only became apparent when unwrapped. You can see that in the background of the picture and I have saved it to use in some crafting.
Inside was surprise 2 - this box - from a vintage children's game.
And inside the box, beautiful tiny vintage Christmas ornaments, a vintage French Christmas card and three of Michele's handmade Christmas badge cards which are lovely.
Just look at that brush tree...and the snowball ornament...and the cracker...and the stars... - I love it all!
Everything fitted perfectly inside the box. I've kept them inside the box for now so that every now and again I can open the box to handle the contents and get all nostalgic. This was a wonderful giveaway, thank you very much Michele!
p.s. If you haven't visited Michele's blog already, you must do so (see link at top of post) - you won't be disappointed!
