Pay It Forward - Edited


The most amazing Pay It Forward gift arrived on my doorstep last week.... all the way from sunny Queensland. I signed up on Bec's The Small Stuff blog a while ago, and then had promptly forgotten all about it!

So many little brown paper packages tied up with string.... but what was inside?


Vintage tea-towels, a relaxing oil blend, and my favourite chocolate (luckily it arrived just before the heatwave hit and the chocolate survived perfectly)..... although it's already been eaten now of course!


There was also this gorgeous market bag which is the perfect size to sling over your shoulder and head to the shops. I've always been a huge fan of the way that Bec takes unusual / reclaimed / recycled items and uses them in her bags. This is definitely a favourite as the bag has been embellished with a mens tie.

But there was even more....

I saw these beautiful little purses on Bec's Flickr and commented on them a little while ago....


.... and now I have one of my very own. It even had 20 cents inside for good luck!

Thanks so much Bec for such a wonderful Pay It Forward gift. Bec's new range of bags are available in her Etsy Shop.

Now it's time for my own Pay It Forward.

I'm sure everybody already knows the rules but: The first three people to leave me a comment will receive a handmade gift from me sometime in the next 365 days. I can guarantee that you definitely won't receive anything in March or April.... but sometime after that! The only other rule is that you must have a blog and you must agree to spread the love by paying it forward to three other people sometime in the next 365 days. Simple really!

Edited: I actually need 6 people to sign up because I've signed up for another one over at Thousand Threads!

Aw, thanks for the lovely write-up Cam! I'm so glad the chocolate arrived before the heatwave - I can just imagine how messy that package could have turned out if it had arrived just a bit later :O
