And the joy never stops

Unless your the poor postman who has to deliver parcels to my house.....



Picture this if you will..... I'm lying in bed fast asleep (even though it's already sometime after 9 AM and I really should be out of bed).



There's a loud knock at the door.



I wake up and think that maybe someone is knocking on the door, but maybe I'm just dreaming.

There's another loud knock, so I yell out - "WHO IS IT?"

No answer, so I get out of bed, stagger to the door and open it.....



I'm wearing pink flannelette pyjamas with printed green frogs wearing crowns, I have crazy bed hair, sleepy eyes, and possibly drool....

.....and I'm greeted by my postman

I'm squinting because the daylight is so bright. He smiles at me and hands over a huge parcel. I apologise for still being in my pyjamas... what else could I say, as I embarrassingly slink back inside and close the door?

I won this amazing box of goodies from Jemma's 100th post giveaway over at Amityville Boronia. Every single piece inside the box was separately wrapped so it was like 20 pressies in 1!

Did you notice that one of the parcels is clearly marked OPEN ME LAST?

There's a craft book, vintage patterns, vintage fabrics, buttons, trims, my favourite chocolate,

some beautiful quilted coasters, embroidery floss, and embroidered doiley....

But, the mystery of the OPEN ME LAST parcel and the piece de resistance, is this amazing handcarved CurlyPops stamp!

It completely matches the font that I use on my header and my business cards. I'll be stamping everything in sight.... don't stand still for too long if you happen to come over!

Thanks so much Jemma!

How much would it cost me to have a day in your life? I am insanely jealous for all the goodies you get... tell me your secret- your have telepathic powers right? You send subliminal messages to people's minds? I'll give it a go and see how it turns out!? lol

This is absolutely amazing. What a great mix pack of goodies. I have to be honest, when I saw your post I didn't comment straight away. Now, I went out and mailed Jemma to find out how much my own little stamp would cost me. She's done an amazing job on that stamp. It's just screams curlypops!

Fun, Fun. She's set the giveaway bar high, hasn't she?

Flickettysplits said...

Sets the giveaway bar high?? Oh my word! I am currently thinking about my own giveaway for my hundred-and-oneth post ... goodness, I better step up.

Jennifer Rose said...

I'm sure the post man sees people come to the door not wearing much :p so at least you were wearing pjs :)

that is a lot of nice stuff :D the stamp looks great, she did a great job with it.

sewfunky said...

Love, love, love the stamp, which reminds me I need to order mine! :)

Polka Dot Rabbit said...

What was that sound you ask? Me gasping at all those amazing goodies! So jealous!

Cass said...

Wow that is a fantastic giveaway prize. I love the stamp

Kirsty said...

Super cute & very thoughtful. Lovely.

Elizabeth said...

what a lovely, very fun package! you lucky lady!

Tania said...

Well, I say! Amityville Boronia has absolutely outdone herself. What a way to start your day (at midmorning)!

PS. I have a theory posties do their best to arrive at inopportune moments - it provides a source of little humour highlights in their day...

our shabby cottage said...

Woah, what a great parcel of goodies Cam! Love the stamp too. Can you give me some tips on how to win a giveway?????

Christina Lowry said...

I wonder what the postie is thinking about this pyjama clad girl who keeps getting interesting looking parcels. Maybe he thinks you are hooked on late night tv shopping, or perhaps that it's been your birthday. I'm betting he would never guess that you are the worlds best guveaway winner! I'm with Nikki, let me know when you've finished the tutorial! :)
PS. That stamp is fantastic. Jemma is such a clever sweetie!

amanda said...

Oh wow what an amazing package. I love getting things in the mail and this is fantastic. Sooo jealous!

Margaret @ Konstant Kaos said...

Wow, what an impressive give away! My 100th post came and went with no more than a whimper ... guess I had better do something!
How long did the chocolate last?
;)

jesska said...

The stamp is perfect!! So many possibilities! Lucky you :)

Ulla said...

Doesn't it make the parcel opening even more exciting when you have an "open me last" to wait for? The stamp is just great, and I love the nice way the fabrics are folded.

Lisa said...

Wow that's got to be the best giveaway prize ever! You are one lucky lady in pajamas.

Betty Jo said...

Capital L,Capital O O, Capital T!!
I'm feelin' a wee bit jealous, it's all so gorgeous.

one little acorn said...

So funny re the postman... I am sure that sort of thins must happen all the time.
What a gorgeous lot of goodies to be gifted.

beccasauras said...

NO COMMENT! No, I have to say something, you crazy woman. Good on you! I'd rather a spunky man knocked on my door, rather than the postman, when I was just rolling out of bed, so you can keep the giveawaya haha, Am ready to kill you over the ctamp, though. That is awesome.

Polka Dot Daze said...

Oh wow! What loot! I love that stamp - how thoughtful!

Jade said...
