The one where Christmas came early

Packages, packages, packages....

So many beautiful things have landed on my doorstep lately, that it seriously feels like Santa has already been to visit.

This one arrived last week all the way from the UK. Lynsey from Cuteable and Swirly Arts sent me all these amazing treats.

Whoops! One of the Tunnocks Tea Cakes is already missing in this shot, and those Thorntons Chocolate Chunk Cookies are TDF. I've been limiting myself to two per day to make them last.... and vintage fabric and gorgeous tags and my BIL's favourite - Wagon Wheels!

My lovely friend Carly popped in to visit last weekend with a pressie for me - check out the specs cleaning cloth. So much prettier than the ugly grey ones that came with my new specs.

Speaking of specs... did I show you my new specs from Zenni?

One last package for today.

This was on my doorstep when I arrived home on Sunday.

Did you count???

That is a stack of thirty teatowels and one pillowcase from Amanda at Krafty Panda. Amazing. Speechless....Love.

Sigh... I'm so lucky!

Wow! Lovely gifts :-)
Especially the teatowels! A thoughtful friend gave me a birthday gift of fabric scraps for me to begin my stash yesterday.
Still loving the green specs :-)

Wow - look at all those tea towels!! Apparently the Thorntons biscuits come in different flavours too...... Just saying for next time!

Beck said...

Wow Cam!! That is one seriously amazing pile of teatowels. And so new and bright, not too many gravy stains on those babies! I hope your Christmas is a happy one my dear, and that 2010 is full of good health, fun and lots of chocolate. Take care and see you in the New Year xo
