Treasures from Blogland

Harrods 029

I may have not had any luck with treasures at the car boot sales yesterday but I have had some lovely ones from my blogging friends
Kelly returned from Italy recently where she’d met up with Michela (which you can read about here and here). Michela very kindly sent Kelly home with a gift for me…. this gorgeous tin!Isn’t it wonderful! Michela certainly knows me well, it is exactly the sort of thing I would pick out myself
And that’s not all. When Beki heard how my sleepover swap had fell through she offered to do a swap with me. We chose a 1950s housewife theme which was so much fun to shop for
I so excited when I opened the box and saw redflorals and oh… feathers!!

Let’s rip all that wrapping off - sorry Beki I know you must of spent some time wrapping all the lovely things but some girls just can’t wait!
There were so many lovely things inside – watch out Vintage Kitten there’s a new cocktail maker in town!

And a CK letter writing kit… anyone want a penpal?!
And look… a CK mug, if you only knew how I’ve been coveting these and my tea just tastes so much better now!

My mum is very surprised to hear I’m offering to wash up with my new tea towel

Of course every housewife needs some pamper time

I loved EVERYTHING and it was so perfect, it’s lovely when blog friends get you so right!
I’ve been really slack this week and haven’t posted Beki’s goodies until today but I’m sure she’ll have a giggle at what I’ve sent as we keep saying how much we think alike!
