There hasn’t been much shopping going on during the past month, but there have been a few small gifts and internet purchases that are now gracing our home. I am loving right now…
This gorgeous hand knitted Strawberry Tea Cosy, bought for me by my Mum & Dad when they visited us from overseas when I was sick in hospital. For all the tea I would no doubt be drinking on my return home.
Bought from the local library, Book Plates for naming your favourite books. These make me think of my Nanny – when she died some of her books were gifted to the family, some of mine have sweet floral Book Plates in them with her name written on them.
When I was in hospital I made friends with a Japanese woman, Mariko, who on her departure gave me this sweet Scotty Dog re-usable bag holder. Mariko had just been through major surgery, but was up and smiling the next day, determined to cope with it and get on home. She is such an inspiration, especially when you are surrounded by a lot of people who were quite simply feeling very sorry for themselves, which certainly doesn’t help to quicken healing. We swapped stories, magazines, and, in the end, phone numbers.
I have a lot of Thank You’s to say – so I ordered a few cards on the internet from iDear. They are just gorgeous – extremely high quality printing, gorgeous colours, and a lovely weight card stock. Don’t you just love her tin-can-phone card that came with it! You can shop online in her Felt shop for her clever designs here.
